    I just broke up with my boyfriend 2 weeks ago, it just didn't work out. And I am already dating another guy and I'm pretty excited about him lol. So I was wondering do you think it's too soon for me to start dating again or should I say fuck it I'm 21 years old?

    With the title "boyfriend" like 2 months, we dated for 2 months before that. It did't last that long to be honest.

    Two months on, two weeks off? Hell I don't cycle through FWB's that fast. I generally keep the same 2-3 guys for a few years.

    You're more of a slut than people think I am. icon_cool.gif

    Every situation is different, there's no set rule.

    But I suggest you go out with this other guy because you really want to be with him, and not to help you get over the other guy. That's not fair to the second guy as he'll more than likely be considered the rebound man.


    Haha he just broke up too with his boyfriend a month ago, so we're both at risk of being the rebound guy.

    Now, now, Paul, nobody thinks you're a slut - they know. icon_wink.gif

    @OP - there's nothing wrong with dating after about 2 weeks. Unless the break-up was very traumatic, and then there could be the rebound effect, when your judgment in picking the next guy could be negatively affected. In which case, taking a dating hiatus for a while would be wise, until your emotions return to normal.

    But if you don't feel any lingering regret or drama over this break-up, then I see nothing wrong with going right back into dating. In fact, it might be advisable.

    Yeah,, you're a slut, not dating boyfriends. 2 months here, a couple weeks, there, it's just churning for you.
    We get it.

    lol 8 weeks? That's how long the last relationship lasted.

    IMO having someone as a boyfriend for two months most likely means that you're not that emotionally invested in the relationship. So I think you're good to go to date someone else.
