How long to wait before dating
Theres no time limit to how long someone needs to wait.
but to be absolutely fair to the next person you are going to date, here are a few tips: make sure you are over the previous person as much as you need to be so that they a) never come up in conversations and b) dont project the past relationship on to the new person. Are you dating to fill the void caused by the recent breakup?
Well it really depends how long have you been with the person you were with, but give yourself a break and be single for awhile and enjoy your single life for awhile till you are ready to go out with someone. I think once you are comfortable with knowing how to be alone again you are ready to date someone else.
It's like hitting a reset button to make sure you are not just rebounding.
There's not really a prescribed length of time to wait.
However, if you find someone else in the meantime that makes you feel happy again, consider taking things slowly at first, but don't feel guilty about how much time you need or don't need.
But it just depends on the depth of the relationship that you just got out of.
If the relationship was not that serious you might date sooner, but vice versa if the relationship meant a lot it might take as long as 6 months before you feel comfortable about moving on to someone else.
Jump backwards three years and about a dozen girls, I was lining up a date for three days after I broke up with a girlfriend of two years.
If that's not your style of dating, the speed may not be for you.
