How do you start dating after a long-term relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

Your last long-term relationship didn’t go as planned and you’ve spent some time thinking about what you really want in a romance. You’ve stopped moping around the house, your appetite is back and you’re feeling energized. Have you starting thinking about dating again?  Do you already have your eye on someone new? Cupid has some tips:

1. Don’t rush: It’s great that you’re finally over your old flame, but don’t go out every night with the sole purpose of finding your next “true love.” Rushing into another relationship will only cause trouble for you and whoever you have your eye on. Instead, go out on a few casual dates – keep the situation light and fun. Just enjoy the fact that you are able to spend time with another person without thinking of your ex. Besides, the best romances happen when you least expect them.

2. Hang out with friends: While you were coming to terms with your breakup, you might have lost touch with some of your friends. Call them up for a night on the town. If you feel like dancing, go to the hottest club you know. If you prefer to do some catching up with your buddies, go out to dinner at a place all of you will love. You never know, while you’re making up for lost time, your soulmate may be just around the corner.

3. Don’t settle: Just because you’re single doesn’t mean you have to cling to whoever comes your way. Keep your options open. If the next person you date isn’t really what you’re looking for in a partner, break things off before it gets too serious. Dating is all about meeting new people, so test the waters a little. Don’t settle for the next person just because you think you won’t be able to find anyone better.
