Getting back out there after you were in a long term relationship is harder than people think! It is hard to be vulnerable again, but it is definitely possible (especially with a little help of your girlfriends). So don’t lose hope! This how to start dating after a breakup!
1. Go out with your girlfriends
Start by spending time with your best girls. They are there to pick you up and to binge eat, talk, cry, and stay up all night with you after a break up. They are also there to help you get back out there. So go out for a night on the town and don’t worry about guys.
2. Cut off communication
Lose communication with your ex otherwise it will just end up hurting you. The best way to get over him is a clean fresh start and you cannot do that unless you are not talking to him. It’s easier said than done, but if you want to start dating after a breakup it needs to happen.
3. Go on casual dates
You do not have to just jump right back into being in a relationship (you really shouldn’t) , you need time for yourself. However, it is okay to go on casual not serious dates. Getting coffee with a cute guy, meeting at a cookout for a late night snack, or dancing with a guy on a night out is not a big deal, and it’s good for you!
4. Enjoy being single
Use this time to do things for yourself and focus on you; as it will help you in your next relationship! Being single is sometimes just as fun as being in a relationship, especially if you haven’t been single in a long time. Enjoy it, learn new things about yourself and what you want, and then take that knowledge to your next relationship.
5. Everything happens for a reason
Don’t let this break up get you down forever. Remember that everything happens for a reason, and there is someone else better for you out there! Keep your head up, the guy of your dreams is out there and you will find him!
