Dating someone out of a long term relationship
You, however, don’t want to be exploited; you want to make sure that your new interest is interested in you personally and emotionally – not just sexually.For this reason, wait longer than you typically do to engage in sexual activity. No one, and I mean NO ONE is ready to date someone with pure intentions right after getting out of another situation that didn’t work out. I’m not talking about dating someone after you’ve gone out on a couple of dates or even explored a very short, one week or so relationship.Time and healing is essential in order to get back up on your feet, to feel rejuvenated enough to be able to give someone a blank, clean slate, and to fall in love. Not much healing is usually required for a situation that was short and ended abruptly as such.
After a relationship ends, people often want to jump in too quickly in this area because their last experience wasn’t so fulfilling toward the end.Many relationships that start this way won’t last, but some can make it past difficult hurdles if you follow a few basic tips and tread carefully. Let’s say that you’ve met a guy you really like, and he just got out of a relationship a short time ago. Specifically, you can best protect yourself by seeing the new person about once per week.The rush to spend several nights a week with someone you’ve just met is not healthy, and it will often result in the following sequence of events: moving too fast; having a mental freak-out; weirdness or fighting between the two of you; and the ultimate breakup.This is a time to love yourself, to be social, to concentrate on your other priorities a bit more, and yes, even to spoil yourself a little bit.But folks, listen when I tell you this, getting back on the saddle again before you’re ready is not the best method for getting over an ex.
Everyone deserves to feel loved and adored, and if you date someone too soon after they just get out of a relationship—Especially, a long-term relationship—then there’s a 99.9999% chance that they’re not going to fall for you on any level, let alone a deeper one.
