Everything Seems So Hopeless After My Breakup – How Do I Get My Life Back On Track?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You've been more than a little off your game since your breakup. It seems to have knocked all the wind out of your sails. Your friends are telling you it's time to get back on the horse and start dating again. Maybe they're right. But how can you start dating someone new when you know you'll just be comparing her to the one who got away. And, where do you even get started with the whole dating game? You've been off the market so long you don't know where to begin.

Getting back into the swing of dating is easier now than ever before. The really great thing about it is that you don't have to be ready to make a lifelong commitment (or even commit to a second date) in order to have a good time on the first date with someone new.

Nowadays, technology has evolved to the point where the only way you could possibly have a hard time finding someone to go on a date with is if you don't try at all. So don't worry about finding a date or even a lifelong mate. Just look for someone you can go out with for an evening and have a good time rather than sitting home alone and thinking about the girl that got away.

If you've been in a committed relationship for a long time there are a few things you need to know that might help make this date more fun for you and your date.

1) Leave your ex behind. She doesn’t need to come on this date with you in physical form or as a present that exists to ruin your good time. Leave her ghosts behind and make this evening about you and the person you're taking the time to get to know. 2) Don't make demands on your heart that it isn't ready to give – especially if you're still thinking more about how to get your ex back than how to get over your ex.. More importantly, don't make promises to this girl you're going out with that you know you can't keep. It might be tempting to give her hope but you know what it feels like to be hurt when things don't work out. Don't make any commitments for the future that you're really not feeling for this girl. 3) Try to have fun. It's crazy nutty the way that works out. But, when you try to have fun, nine times out of ten, you do.

Whether you're ready to leave your ex behind or not, dating again can give you new perspective, help rebuild your self-confidence, and really make your ex see you through the eyes of another woman (green eyes at that). It's a more effective tool for getting your ex back than most men realize.
