I learned the hard way that sometimes getting your stuff back from an ex (cough. That’s how those things called rebound relationships and hook-ups happen!
So what are the risks of reactivating that dating profile too soon? These also double as signs and symptoms that your emotional wounds still have more healing to do before a healthy new relationship can take shape: Now I’m not saying there’s not any merit to those structured singles events that have you sitting down with ten guys for five minutes at a time.

However, there’s nothing more futile than getting back into dating or a relationship before you’re emotionally ready. My mom has this saying, “The only time you should be dating is when you know you don’t need to be dating.” She’s a wise lady because it’s true.
The only time you should be dating is when you’re already comfortable being single and hanging out solo.
With every breakup, there’s always this point when you’ve stopped crying and you start to think about dating again.
