I just ended a 4 year relationship a month ago and still really down about it. Any advice on how to move on? When is too soon to start dating again?
DudeInNOVA saidThere isn't any specific time frame for it. It's whenever you're ready. My only advice would be to make sure you're really ready because it isn't fair to the person you're dating if you are still hung up on your ex.
RobertF64 saidI am struggling with a similar issue. On the bright side, the gym motivation is paying off.
paulflexes saidMost people tend to start dating "again" before breaking up with the first guy.
Stuttershock saidIf you are still really down about your ex, then it sounds like you are not ready to start dating again.
If you start dating too soon you will be tempted to rush the relationship to the level of intimacy you had grown accustomed to with your ex, which isn't healthy and often confusing.
Give some time to reestablish yourself as a single person again, hang out with friends, take up a new hobby or sport. It may sound cliche, but you need to learn to be happy being single again before you can move on to a new relationship.
