How long after a romantic relationship has ended did you start to date/see other people/get in another relationship?

More specifically, after a year long relationship or longer?

Can you explain any feelings or thoughts on it?

DK/DC: What are your pets names and what animal belongs to which name?

I was with my ex for 5 years, have been broken up for 6 months (the whole year has been rough though), and I'm still not over it. I have a crush on another guy I've known for a while, but I still feel guilty about it because I'm still in love with my ex.

It's a sucky situation. I don't know what I should do half the time to be honest.

Generally speaking I am single for a year and a half or more between relationships. Not because that's what I choose, but that's what happens, I've never been in a relationship for a year, only less.

I broke up with my ex of 9-ish years a little over a year ago. I started dating again last May but haven't had a new relationship since then.

My cat's name is Luna.

i was with my ex for four years but for half of that time i kept trying to get out as i no longer loved him, really. it took me about 8 months to get into another relationship, which i thought was quite soon but again, i was in an dysfunctional relationship for a long time. i didnt want to jump into another relationship when it happened, it just did.

because i was with my ex for four years, it took me a while to get used to little things, such as picturing my current s/o's face in the dark. for some reason that took a long time for me to get used to even though i hadnt seen my ex for a while and even though i didnt love him at all. it was really weird but i didnt think too much about it. i just let that pass.

My recent break up is the first I've dealt with. I am lonely but I would feel too guilty to get involved with anyone now, nor would I know how haha my previous relationship sort of fell into my lap. (We were together for 4.5 years and split up about two months ago)

I'm living with my mom at the moment, her dog is called Siga and my nan's cat is called Annie.

In the past I've gone up to a year in between relationships, but 3 - 6 months is more common.

I have three dogs named Samson (he came with that name), Francisco, and Kaia (who came with the name "Kai").

My cat's name is Vida.

One of my snakes is named Dax. I have two snakes which I haven't named yet, but I tend to call them, "my sisters," or "my Magdalena Plains." I'm getting another snake on Monday, but don't have any idea what I'm going to call him. He needs a name soon, though.

My heartache usually unleashes my slutty ways and I usually end up underneath someone pretty fast because I tend to think "the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else."

Would not recommend. For me, usually it just prolongs the heartache and while I do escape the heartache for a little while, it catches up to me tenfold.

i love the fact that someone else calls their pet "muttonhead". i'm sure i must have learned it from my mother, but everyone looks at me strangely when i say it.

There is no correct answer to that so just do what you feel is right for you. Sometimes you feel ready to get to know another person then go on a date and THEN realise it was too soon.

I ended a 12 year marriage and started online
dating six months later. But after one date I realised I wasn't ready and needed more time by myself. About three months after I tried it again and met my boyfriend of two years. </p>

Some people tried to tell me it would take me years to get over my ex husband. They were just projecting. Every relationship is different.

Whenever i felt like it.

I think everyone should move at their own pace. If getting past the relationship is seriously affecting your quality of life and health for a prolonged period of time, then its a flag to me that something is not going quite right, but generally I believe most people are ok to move at their own pace.

Usually, I start dating someone new whenever I feel like I can do that without constantly bringing up my ex or comparing the dude to my ex. When/if my current relationship ends, I think it will be a much longer time than it's taken in the past.
