Cupid’s Advice:

As intoxicating as a new relationship can be, starting one with someone who is just ending a major chapter of his life can be toxic.  Cupid has some tips:

1. Understand the situation: Even if he says he’s ready to be with someone again, don’t be so quick to believe him.  He may want to be over his last relationship, but that doesn’t mean that he is.

2. Get the facts: Find out the specifics of your parent’s past relationship.  The longer and more intense the relationship was, the harder it’s going to be for him to make a commitment to someone else so soon, especially if his heart is broken.

3. Move forward with caution: New relationships are always fun and exciting, but having one with a newly single man can be dangerous.  To prevent yourself from heartbreak, go into the situation slowly and with caution.
