When you broke up with your significant other, how long did it take you to start dating again? My mothers is aware that I’m not in the best relationship right now. She suggests that I break up with him and start going on dates and having fun. To some degree I do see where she is coming from. It’s just hard to start all over again when you been with someone for so long.
I would like to be married and have children within the next four years so I guess I have a lot of thinking to do.
I’m just going to take one day at a time.

I think the timing will be different for everyone. It just depends when you feel ready to date and I think you have to be happy with yourself before that!!

Timing is different for everyone.
I dated a guy for six months or so and it didn’t end well (he cheated on me). I didn’t date for about a year or so afterwards.
Later, I dated another guy for three years, but emotionally I was over it long before we broke up. I started going on dates within the week of the breakup. I started seeing DH a month after the break-up. I wasn’t on a timeline, though. DH and I dated five years before we married and aren’t planning on kids for another three or so.
