I recently went through a horrible breakup, and by horrible I mean I had my heart completely ripped out by my ex girlfriend of 3 years. I've never been in such horrible shape emotionally. It's been almost 4 months since it happened. I'm getting a little better, but only because I've had 2 different girls express some interest in me. I think the rejection is what hurts the most, and it helps a lot to have someone else show some interest. I'm definitely not over my ex, though, and I'm really afraid to jump into another relationship. Is it bad to start dating someone else, even if you're not over an ex? Should I be honest with the person about my recent breakup?

Getting back in the saddle (or so they call it) isn't a bad thing and no one will begrudge you..but jumping from one relationship, in my opinion is unhealthy, cause people need time to move on and get back to their normal state...so yes, go on dates, see some girls, but don't necessarily get into a serious relationship until you are over your ex...some say the next girl will help that, ain't always true.
I found out a year into one of my relationships, that my now ex, was still in love with his ex...now he told me he knew this even when he got with me, but it made it more apparent when she tried to get him back...now, I wouldn't have got with him had I known, because I would have got that he still could go back to her...and that he couldn't possibly be truly with me, while he still hadn't moved on.
It turned out, that he believed her, and we ended because of it, and I found out that actually she had played him...and just wanted revenage cause he hurt her...i laugh about it now..:P0
