Rumor has it that Courtney Robertson shared a smooch with Arie Luyendyk just after ending her engagement to Ben Flajnik a week ago, according to People. Robertson ended her engagement to Bachelor star Flajnik who confirmed it on Friday, though no details have been shared regarding the split. Regardless, the Bachelor winner locked lips with Bachelorette runner-up Luyendyk. It seems that Robertson is keeping it within the same franchise. Her former fiancé seemed bewildered regarding the turn of events. Robertson and Luyendyk went out for a dinner date that ended off with a goodnight kiss at the same restaurant that Robertson went to with her former fiancé during her home visit on the television show.

How long after a broken engagement should you wait before kissing someone else?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s difficult trying to recover from a broken engagement, but some recover more quickly than others. So what is the appropriate amount of time before moving on to someone new? Cupid has some advice:

1. There is no exact timeline: There is no masterful equation of when the appropriate amount of time is to kiss someone other than your former fiancé/fiancée. Though, there is a courtesy time period. Kissing anyone within two-three weeks is immediate grounds for violation and disrespectful.

2. Respect your former beau: You may be ready to live up your newly singlehood, but your partner may still be reeling from the broken engagement. If you are going out and meeting new people, try not to boast about it to mutual friends, to your former beau directly or on the Internet.

3. Check yourself: Rebounds are not good for anyone — especially you. Make sure that if you do meet a new person that you are interested in them for the right reasons. Move on when you are ready, not when you are lonely.
