The thing is, I got past the crying stage after just a few days. I started to hit the resentful stage and felt glad that we split up. I properly acknowledged everything that I shouldn't have actually tolerated from him. I also began realising that I wasn't even sure if I did love him. I think I was more in love with the idea of a relationship than him specifically. I'm still confused about this even now.
I've made use of this break up. I've been hanging out with my friends about 3 times a week, been getting back into neglected hobbies, getting healthier, changed my hairstyle, etc. I've really grown as a person and am really independent now.
While hanging out with friends, I've become close with one in particular. Over the space of a month (from the end of August until now) we became insanely close. We have so much in common, we shared all our secrets with the other, he's great fun, etc. I quickly developed feelings for him and so did he for me. We've talked about our feelings for the other, how quickly it happened, how it just "clicked". We're not actually a couple yet though. We decided to leave it because of my break up and it felt too soon logically (even though emotionally I feel like I'm over my ex and want to be with this new guy). We've flirted a bit, kissed a couple of times but that's it.
I guess my question is whether its possible to get over a long-term relationship this quickly? I don't think about my ex, I couldn't care less what he's doing, I can think of good times together fondly without any hurt, etc. Also, do these feelings with this new guy sound like a rebound or genuine? I really believe they are genuine because I care about him so much and I'm not in a rush for sex or anything.
Sorry for this being so long but any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks in advance! :)
