How Long Should I Wait Before Dating Someone New After A Breakup?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Your were with your ex for several months but now that things have ended you are more than a little crushed. You keep hearing people say that you should get back on the horse and start dating again but it just doesn't feel right yet. How long should you wait before dating someone new after a breakup? Are you going too slow or is there a proper post-dating mourning stage you should go through? You need help! You really don't know what to do?

Does this sound anything like the thoughts running through your mind? Many people go through this after a relationship has ended by a design other than their own. You're sort of left flailing around and not sure what to do. You feel somewhat like a fish without water and are a little afraid that you'll never really be able to feel like you can catch your breath again. It's not a situation anyone envies but most people can related if they've ever been on the receiving end of getting dumped before. Now you have a decision to make. Do you cave into the pressure that you're getting on all sides to start dating again, do you hide away from the world and hope it will all go away, or do you go out there and get busy working on a way to get your ex to take you back?

All the choices mentioned above have merit and are worth considering at some point along the way. Hiding away from the world is only good as a temporary solution and not a long-term strategy to avoid the dating game now and in the future. You don't want to lock yourself away from the world after a breakup. But that doesn't mean you have to go out there and get serious about dating someone new right away either. Many people feel that the option of getting your ex back is out of the question but that's really not the case either. You just have to find the right path to follow to make it happen.

There is no time limit that is set in stone for dating again. You have to go with what your heart tells you. It's really not fair to get involved with someone who loves you deeply if you know in your heart you're just not ready to move on. On the other hand, casual dating is a great way to prepare your heart to move on and can be a lot of fun if you both establish proper ground rules going into things. However, if you're a one soul mate at a time kind of person and you're still in love with your ex, there is only one thing that is going to work for you. You're going to have to get your ex back fast.
