Two years. I needed to fully heal before I could even consider dating again.
You go through a grieving process at first because you feel a sense of loss. It's inevitable though , because having someone part of your life , but then all of a sudden you have no place in their life anymore is difficult to comprehend at first. Having to rebuild your life and future without them being part of it anymore is a daunting thought
Time doesn't heal your pain, it's what you do with your time that heals it. Gradually your feelings fade and pain eases. I've learnt that hearts do heal and they do love again , but only if you let go of the hurt. Eventually you find your own way of surviving, despite the intial pain you feel after a breakup.1

My last relationship was 10 years long. It was probably over for 2 years before it was officially over, but it still messes with you. Its been about 8 months now and I finally feel like I could really start a relationship. I've been dating all sorts of girls, but mainly they weren't the right ones, but I wasn't really ready for it as I thought I was.
It takes awhile to enjoy being single again depending on how long you were dating someone for. I would say there's no magic number on how long it will take, but you will certainly be able to tell the difference once you aren't really concerned with them anymore.0
