How do I state this?
There are people who don't take breaks between relationships, they hop from one person to the next with no break in between.
They don't end the first until they find the second person.
There are people who will spend time being out of a relationship...they end the first one before they find the second person.
Anybody have any general thoughts about this?
Is one way better or worse and why?
I feel like I trust people more when they end it with the first person before they look for the second person.
Does it matter to you or not if somebody is already involved when they start to date you?

To be honest I have been going through this situation. I just got out of a long relationship almost 3 months ago...however I've been talking to this guy while me and my now ex were on a break. I developed a connection with the guy I was talking to and went out with him on a few dates (my now ex knew that I wanted to date other people while we were on break). I ended up ending the relationship with my boyfriend however the new guy I was interested in was extremely hesitant about getting involved with me and said that he didn't want to be my rebound. Most people think that you need to take some time after a relationship to be on your own and that you shouldn't just jump to another person. I agree with this because although you may feel like you are OK and are over the relationship there still may be some lingering things that you need to deal with on your own.
When I started talking to the other guy right after I broke up with my boyfriend, I got really clingy because I felt like I needed him and didn't really want to be alone. Just be patient and wait. If that person is meant for you then you will be with them regardless of how much time has passed. I know its hard when you really like someone but its really for the best. I am still casually dating people right now, but I always let them know my situation.1
