I dont see what the problem is? They arent getting married, just dating and hanging out. Maybe he is the one…you never know!

Nothing wrong with this, some people move on faster then others.

I started dating my FI weeks after a breakup; and we have been together for almost 7 years now.

I know a girl who started dating her SO the day she broke up with her ex. It makes no sense to me, but some people move quickly. I do think some time to chill out is best, but not everyone feels the same way.

@Pink Asawa:  Shes just having fun.  Maybe it will turn serious but for the time being…let her do her thing and not interfere.  Be honest about how you feel about him of course but don’t criticize her for getting back out there so soon.  He past relationship was probably long over before it was actually over! Most relationships are! I met my FI online. We hung out a lot and here we are 5 years later a few months away from marriage!

Nothing wrong with it as long as she isn’t the type of serial monogamist that jumps from relationship to relationship, with the first guy who shows interest in her.  I know that pattern works out fine for some people but I personally believe it isn’t healthy.  It’s good to learn how to be single, date around and figure out what works best for you.

There’s nothing wrong with it.  I met my fiance about 3 weeks after a breakup with my former fiance and we’ve been together 4.5 years.  We hung out 4 times the first week and 5 days the next, we just loved being around each other.  If she’s happy and having fun just let her enjoy it.

@jesssamesssa:  So true!  All of my prior relationships were done a long time before I left. 

I think it’s completely normal.  She’s dating, having a good time and seeing what’s out there.  Although we see examples of total heartbreak and misery over a breakup here on the bee and in the media, that’s not always how breakups are.  I can only think of one breakup where I was truly heartbroken.  The rest were pretty uneventful.
