Cupid’s Advice:

Everyone responds differently when a relationship ends, but there are somethings to consider.  Cupid’s got some answers.

1. Patience is a virtue: Although there’s no scientific method to determine the “mourning period,” rushing into another relationship can be a quick fix, but in the end is more damaging.

2. Soul-searching: Take the “mourning period” to focus on yourself; evaluate your past relationship and find out what you’ve learned and what you can do differently when you are once again ready to date.

3. Closure is crucial: Whether it’s getting your favorite shirt back or keeping distance for a long time, it’s important to close the door on your relationship.  Nobody wants to date someone else while they are thinking of a past lover.
