How long to wait before dating
Paulette Sherman, an NYC-based psychologist and author of “Dating From The Inside Out,” explain how to tell when you’re ready to date after a breakup.
Then there's the whole idea that "the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else." Which is right?
Think about what your relationship and breakup taught you about what you want—and don't want.
Hafeez also advises making sure you're not interested in dating just to distract yourself from your breakup.
That said, there’s a difference between being genuinely excited to meet someone new and feeling a need to go out with people just because you want something to distract you from your ex.
“If you’re reactive, fearful, hurting, or moody from heartache, you’re not ready to bring someone new into your life,” Winter said.
