Dating a month after a breakup isn’t bad.
It has been a month since your breakup after all.
This is sufficient enough time for you to begin the process of moving forward.
Be clear about where your emotions lie at the moment.
A month is enough time to begin the process of moving on as long as you aren’t still emotionally invested in your previous relationship.
You shouldn’t start dating when you are madly in love with your ex and secretly hoping they come back.
This means that you aren’t emotionally ready to move on to a new relationship were that to happen.
You would not be prepared to give all of yourself to a possible partner.
This is unfair to them.
You can’t use someone else to help you get over a breakup.
This leads to hurt and a failed relationship.
Your emotional issues have to be dealt with first before moving on to dating again.
This is why you must take account of how you are feeling right now.
Be honest with yourself about the reason why you want to start dating again.
Have you legitimately gotten over the breakup?
Are you no longer in love with your ex?
When you remain emotionally invested in your past relationship, more time is needed.
Start working on yourself.
Rebuild your self-confidence.
You could do this by challenging yourself on a daily basis.
Engage in new activities that test you mentally, physically or both.
It could be a new exercise regiment or learning how to do something new.
The more you challenge yourself and work towards the goal of attaining it, the more you focus on you.
Every time you get closer to reaching your goal, you feel a rush of confidence.
This is what builds you up.
This is how you begin to focus on yourself and keep your drive going.
You can also build new relationships with people.
Meet new people in your life that you didn’t know when you were dating your ex.
This improves the chances that your discussions with these new people won’t involve your ex as a topic.
They never knew your ex so they have no basis to ask such questions.
This means that you get to interact with people without the constant reminder of your ex.
In associating yourself with people that you and your ex knew, you are constantly getting reminded of your ex through your conversations with them.
This is why you should keep those interactions with these mutual friends or acquaintances to a minimum and focus on making new friends instead.
The more you work on yourself, the more you create distance between you and your feelings for your ex.
You are filling your life with a positivity that helps you move forward.
Once you know for a fact that your feelings for your ex are no longer a factor, you can move on to dating again.
This bodes well for your sense of self-worth and the feeling that you know you can meet someone who is the most compatible with you at some point in the future.
