  • As soon as you're over your breakup... Plus you can do whatever the hell you want... If you want to date someone five hours after breaking up... HEY... I say knock yourself out...

  • Depends on the break-up, and why?
    My last was a mutual thing, and she got a GREAT JOB in London. I can't move there, now, for family reasons, but we 'broke up' amicably, not wanting to do the "long-distance thing", but also knowing that we really wanted different things.
    I still love her, in some way, but we aren't 'right' as a couple, so why try to force it, only to make everything bad, later!!
    We broke up in a 'good' way, and I have no lingering issues, or resentment, or anything like that! I really do wish her the very best!! It was a good choice for her, and so what, if we didn't work out?
    Maybe that means that there is someone more WONDERFUL and AMAZING, that will be coming into my life soon!! :)

  • I think it's best to take the time you have been together, convert the number to a lower category (years -> months; months -> weeks etc) and then wait out that number of time.
    So a three month relationship will need three weeks.

    But I dunno.

  • I've said 2 years, but if you really don't have any feel for this matter yourself, the answer should be NEVER !!

    Please don't be swayed by others on this matter.

    Okay, most people are saying 1 to 2 months, but then are you most people? Would most people be asking this kind of question here -- I doubt it.

    My answer is that it's okay to start again straight away, even with a secret suitor that your ex knows or doesn't know about. But what really matters here is 2-way HONESTY !!

    Your self-honesty, your honesty with your new partner, his/her self-honesty and his/her honesty with you.

    If you're both honest with each other, then you can even work out together what went wrong with the previous relationship so that you can both avoid the same mistakes, and you can both work out together how to play the new game -- cool, normal or sexy fast !!

    And you should judge when YOU are ready, BUT in HONESTY with the new partner you must work out whether he or she is ready too. If one of you is NOT ready, then just be friends until BOTH of you ARE ready, or until one of you is sure it can't work, or until one of you gets an even better offer !!

  • I said next day, but realistically, whenever you feel like it. It completely depends on the person and the depth of the relationship.

  • If you're the dumper can be immediate because you often psychologically moved on before you actually were sure you wanted to end it.
