How to Get Back to Dating After a Breakup

Break-ups are sim­ply awful, there’s rarely a time that it doesn’t leave at least one party feel­ing like they lost a part of them­selves and like it is going to take for­ever until they can feel up to dat­ing again. There are times when things are annoy­ing com­pli­cated and ter­ri­bly depress­ing but the only way out is get­ting back in the dat­ing scene and get­ting your self-esteem back.  Now, if you are search­ing for a new date now that the mourn­ing period has ended, you need to under­stand that it’s going to be tougher than you expected at first. How­ever, if you know how to han­dle your­self and how to get your­self back in that “happy place,” then you will gain a cer­tain emo­tional bal­ance and be in har­mony with your­self again. There are a cou­ple of stages you need to get through in order to actu­ally get back in the dat­ing scene.

1.) Rebound Time

Get­ting over your ex is some­thing that will take some time – we already estab­lished that, but then again, you didn’t expect it to be over the next day. The point is, you need to under­stand that you need to see other peo­ple, that there are other hand­some, inter­est­ing, beau­ti­ful peo­ple out there that match your inter­ests and see the world the way you do. Some of them won’t, but that’s the point of the rebound state – to allow you to see the world again, through a wider lens. The only thing you should be care­ful with is not to play with other people’s feel­ings – this means that at all times, you have to con­sider that if it’s just rebound for you, you shouldn’t lead the other one on.

2.) The Best Cure For Every­thing is Time

Stop wait­ing for every­thing to hap­pen “right now”. Heal­ing doesn’t come easy, and if you were in a long-term rela­tion­ship, it’s going to be even harder. Whereas I under­stand you don’t want to lis­ten to this kind of advice, that wait­ing isn’t anyone’s cup of tea. But the sooner you get your­self accus­tomed with the idea, the eas­ier it will be for you to han­dle the sit­u­a­tion. The more patient you are, the more heal­ing you will get – and this has been tested through­out time.

3.) Have Real­is­tic Expectations

We all want it all, and after a break-up, one of two things might hap­pen – you either start swear­ing off the pos­si­bil­ity of ever match­ing with some­one else, or you might end up think­ing any­one else might be bet­ter. Nei­ther approach is either health or use­ful – remem­ber that peo­ple are gen­er­ally dif­fer­ent, and you might end up match­ing with some­one you wouldn’t expect. The point is to keep an open mind for oppor­tu­ni­ties that might come up. This means you have to stay patient and lis­ten to what hap­pens around you.

Get­ting back in the dat­ing game is hard to do, but you have to stay strong.

This is a very down to earth, hon­est way of approach­ing mov­ing on after a break up. There’s no secret trick, just time to heal and real­iz­ing the poten­tial of other peo­ple. Thanks

Very true about rela­tion­ship advice, time is the best cure to get over someone.
