  • The sooner you replace them the sooner you forget about her & move on. I will hook up that night if I'm attracted & the opportunity is there. But if I still have respect for her & knew she still cared I would make sure she didn't see me with another girl ever.

    On the other hand if I was hoping for a chance of reconciling then no I would stay away from women altogether at least until I know it's done. I could never go back to a girl if I knew she was with another guy & would expect the same from her so I would not risk blowing it.

  • Well I really loved the guy I was with and so it took me about 1.5 years to start liking other guys. It took about 2.5 years to hookup with someone else but I loved the second guy too. I'm weird.

  • I've never had a boyfriend, but I think it would depend on how long I was with the person and how strong and serious the realtionship was with that person, as well as the reasons for the relationship ending.

  • It depends on what the previous relationship was like and how deep the relationship was. If I wasn't that into him,then moving on could be a heck of a lot quicker.

    • I was with the girl for two years. We lived together for one and a half. Things weren't going to great between us and she started making a "new friend". I got very uncomfortable and broke up with her. She said I left her on "suspicions". I think she turned to him right away for comfort and possibly a hook up, I just wonder if she still thinks of me and if she is hurting. I haven't heard from her in over a week. But last I know she was still telling me she loved me and wanted me to come home.

    • I honestly have gone through this with her before. She says she understands what hurt me, but things never change. That is why this time I didn't go back.

    • Find some one who deserves you. Sorry but she is playing you because she knows you will always be around,her fall back guy. I'm not going to say she is not thinking of you because it is difficult to just forget anyone. However,if someone is out on the prowl when they are a part of a relationship,it is because they have already checked out of the relationship mentally,emotionally etc. I think this has become a game to her,sorry to say. It's great that you are not going back.

  • I think it depends on what you are looking for, I always like to take my time to heal my heart, if I'm not ready for another person he will feel it and I will mess up a probably good relationship, you have to be well emotionally to go in another relationship...well, as you said "hook up" maybe you don't need a relationship right now, so you can do it whenever you want!

  • 4 or 5 months,but it depends on the situation. Hook up doesn't mean u'll get into relationship with someone,usually I don't take it as a serious thing.

  • It depends on the breakup. If it was a bad one, I would hookup in like a week, or as fast as I can to try to forget a guy. If it was a good breakup then Id wait to hookup when I actually seek a realtionship with a guy.

    • Did hooking up quickly really help you forget him quickly?

    • Definitely, helped forget him, but not like in a day, it took time, but it diminished my feelings for him. It was more of a mentality like "letting him see what he missed on", especially because his best friends were at the same restaurant lol. They even said "___ will get jealous", which lets me know, HE still had feelings for me. But in reference to the guy I kissed, there was no second date lol, he wanted one but I didnt.

  • I waited 3 years after my

    Break up because I had to have some issues fixed my ex really messed up my head So I didn't wanna put a guy through that with me

  • Depends but if I was really mad at the guy that I just broke up with then I would probably hook up the same night I broke up with him

    • Interesting, but was he still on your mind? If so, how long after you broke up did you think about him?

    • yup still on my mind and the time it took for me to forget about him depended upon how much I liked the new guy. If I really liked the new guy I honestly forgot about the ex maybe within a month or so

  • 3 moths then again it depends how much in love I was with the person I broke up with.

  • Ahhh... depends.

    As long as a lifetime. As little as 20 min. Just depends on the situation at hand.

  • yup like everyione else said it depends on a lot of things. for me it would be how much I loved the girl and how long we've been together. some people hook up while not over their ex in order to get over an ex. that's not a good idea

  • Maybe it's just me but I normally don't get those sad feelings just after a break up, in the beginning somehow usually feel happy but after a month or two these feelings bubble up... but you can't plan relationships, girls come and go but if I meet someone I like I wouldn't care how long it has been since my last breakup!

    • So initially you wouldn't feel bad. You actually felt good and would go out and meet new girls, but after a few months you began to feel it? How so?

    • haha maybe just me being crazy but I kind of feel free when I break up but for some reason the feelings start to come after a while! but I I usually would wait a couple of months before iI start a new serious relationship.

    • You aren't crazy. I feel sorta free myself, especially since I was the one who broke it off. I'm just wondering if my ex is hooking up with other guys and being spiteful or if she has already moved on and couldn't careless about me anymore.

  • trick question - they're all the same person
