  • I say 24 hours minimum..lol
  • Whenever you feel ready! +5
  • He was probably dating someone else before you broke up, so,...Go for it!
  • depends on how long you where together one year = one week two years = two weeks and so forth
  • When you feel ready. Consider this, regardless of who initiated the breakup or why it came about, the reality is the two of you aren't together. My suggestion, spend some time learning to like and love yourself. You are truly great and wonderful. The breakup wasn't because of any failing of yours, it was because the two of you couldn't agree on issues. Better to learn that now than later. So learn to accept yourself without judgment. If you can accept yourself, honor yourself and love yourself, then you will find you will only be attracted to those who feel comfortable with themselves. It's not the looks, the body, the money, it's the whole person. If you find comfort with yourself and meet someone who makes you even the slightest bit uncomfortable, that's your intuition telling you to watch out. Trust yourself and your instincts. Your next one will be a keeper.
  • I would suggest after and only after you realized you learned something from the last relationship whether you were in the right or not and you feel you are emotionally past it. That will give the next person the benefits of a better you without extra baggage.
  • as long as you need...
  • Well, if I broke up with the girl, about 15 seconds. If she broke up with me, about 2 hours.
  • Whenever you feel ready to get hurt again i guess is when you will know you are ready. I dont think il have a gf for along time now.6 yrs was long enough for me.
  • How long should you wait...... I hope you were on your way back out before she closed the door.
  • Sometimes right away, just for a brief escape from the pain, which usually isn't a good idea. Otherwise, about a week.
  • I think you should wait a few months, to get yourself back on track, fix any issues or problems, that you had in your last relationship, figure out what it is you really need in a parnter and take your time getting to know someone, before you start dating them.
  • at least an hour' just in case she wants to come back''
  • At least a year I don't want the guy caught up in a rebound with me.
  • Til I am compelled to want to date again
  • A long time because I feel that even afterwords there are still feelings involved with that person so i feel like i'd be cheating. It feels like I am still not allowed to be with anyone else. Also, if is not completely over then seeing someone else would totally distroy a second chance.
  • Whenever you meet someone whom you want to date. It's not like being a widow or widower! :)
  • I kind of have a rule with myself that I wait as long as the relationship lasted until I go out with someone else. My girlfriend just broke up with me today, and to tell the truth, I didn't really think it would work out anyway (I kind of got her to break up with me on purpose), but I thought that since she really liked me it would be nice to wait until I go out with someone so she can get over me (I sound kind of conceited, don't I?).
  • Until im done with thinking about them "that" way
  • I used to counsel people who broke up to wait at least THREE Months ... This gives you time to mostly get over the past relationship and pull yourself together .. and not get caught on the re-bound .. +5
  • Until i want to go through torture again..lol
  • It depends on your age. It used to be immediately. Now it's never! :)
  • It kinda depends on who broke up with whom. Dating, in and of itself could occur very soon for both. (Just going out with someone, for lunches, dinners, a movie, dancing, etc.) But for the dating to move into relationship (including sexual) status, I would say at least a few weeks, and whomever was hurt in the breakup (there's usually at least one), maybe longer - THEY have to make sure that they are not getting into another relationship on "rebound".
  • I'm closing in on 9 months. I'll probably wait a year at least.
  • The very same night I break up.
  • if you guys broke up, why are you worried about seeing this person again?
  • It depends on your feelings. If you are deeply hurt and not ready, it may be best to wait. If you are hurt, but anxious to overcome the pain, I would begin seeing other people, but date different guys. Don't get serious with anyone right away.
  • Whenever you feel ready if u ever feel that again.
  • As long as U need :)
  • Until I feel ready. I.e. when the past doesn't interfere with the present and future.
