Do you follow the "Three months rule" before you start dating again after a break-up?

~etoile~ 2007/12/07 19:42:03
Yes. i need to mend my broken heart too before i move on.
What rule? who needs to follow rules? After all I'm free!
It usually takes more than three months to let go of a previous relatioship.
Maybe not three months, but i take some time off before i start dating again.
No. Its not that i dont value the previous relationship, its just that... I need to move on!

    not really. it depends on a relationship that you had. if you think it's too hard to let go then you must set a deadline for moving on like 3 months, but if the relationship you had is just a play or fling. it doesnt have to take 3 months to date others.

    Well it depends on the relationship, if we were super serious and I loved him, it'd take a long time to get over him. If we weren't too serious I only was starting to really like him, then it wouldn't take me too long to get over him.

    It took me 12 years to find someone I was potentially interested in dating.

    I was interested in that route, but she just wants to be friends. The girl that I knew before that broke off our engagement in a typed letter through the mail. We had been together for a couple of months short of five years when that happened.

    I'm being honest, that almost made me cry. That's awful. I think you deserved better, especially if she did it over a letter. Wishing the best for you.

    It caused bigger problems for me, but I think that it would have been harder over the telephone. We were in a long distance relationship, and thanks for the talk.

    aww but that's still sad.
    I hate love stories with sad endings.
    That's the only kind of story where i hate sad endings, which shows I'm really a sap even when I pretend not to be x]
    Hope you find someone special :]

    depends on several factors
    I do like taking time off though
    especially after long term relationships
    you kinda lose a sense of who you are
    because your so accustomed to being with someone and you lose a sense of what you truly want
    I love time to myself after a breakup
    I wait until I'm completely ok with the previous relationship and then move on

    yeah, i prefer waiting a while, unless i have someone who likes me, i'll date them, and pretend i'm over that last relationship until I really am. It's one of the only ways I can get over things /=

    it's just hard because peeps look down on women who ask men out here... that and dating seems to be viewed as only done when you're already a couple... i just want to date and enjoy someone's company whether it would lead to romance or just plain platonic love... haiz!

    Well, I don't know, for me. It's been about a year since my last break-up and I'm still not feeling up to going after anyone else. I'm over the guy, I just am put off by love and dating.
