Start Dating someone out of a long term relationship

Dating someone out of a long term relationship

Those are great qualities to have for yourself and to bring to your next relationship.

I am 31 and I have been in a long-term relationship since I was 15.

We recently broke up and now I am out dating again, but I have no idea what I’m supposed to do.

While your desire to move on is understandable — you have, after all, grown up as one half of a whole — I would urge you to pause, and take a breath before you start dating again.

This break-up provides you with an opportunity to focus on yourself and if you meet someone new immediately, that opportunity will be lost.

“Oh, she’s just a rebound,” “She just broke up, she’s looking for a rebound,” etc. When a relationship ends, there are all sorts of loose ends and areas of life that end up changing (depending on how closely connected these two people were.) The rebound happens when the guy or girl doesn’t address the loose ends and just seeks out another relationship to “shortcut” getting their life back into the order it was in before.

I’m not just talking about finding a replacement girlfriend who can cook as well as well as the last one or is willing to do the same things with you the last one was.

Relationship dissolution is always stressful, but finding yourself alone at 31 is particularly so.

A break-up can affect almost every aspect of your daily life, from where you live, to what you do in your free time, to the even bigger questions.

You may want to have children and may be worrying about when that will now happen.

On the upside, this is also an exciting time for you — a fresh start and a new journey.

If you find someone you like, go for it, and don’t fret about choosing the right person straight away.
