Breakups suck; There is no way to sugarcoat it. But, unfortunately, none of us are immune to it. Even celebrities like Bill and Melinda Gates, JLo and A-Rod, Kim and Kanye have all gone their separate ways in hopes of a happier life.
Although everyone goes through a breakup at one point or another, it doesn’t take away from the initial sting and the myriad of feelings flowing in. You may feel sad, angry, betrayed, jealous, bitter, and lonely, but that all starts to heal with time. Navigating your world after a breakup, no matter how long, can be a winding journey, but eventually, you reach the coast, and the calming waves bring you peace and bring you back to yourself.
So now that you’ve spent some time healing; however that may be (going out with friends, cooking, binge-watching Netflix, picking up a new hobby, traveling, etc.), you may feel like it’s time to get back out there and start dating again; but how do you know where to start?
As dating experts here at Perfect 12, let us give you some advice on how to dive back in and put your best foot forward to find your perfect match.
Love Yourself First
Being happy and confident with yourself is the first step to getting back out there. If your cup isn’t full, you won’t be able to genuinely enjoy your time with the other person. So make sure that you’ve gotten yourself to a place of peace and happiness and so that you have the ability to open up and allow yourself to love again. If you tell yourself – I cannot handle another breakup, then you aren’t ready. Don’t push yourself and allow yourself to heal and find your spark again!
Finish the Book
Your past is in the past. Like a book, you’ve read it, and now it’s time to move on and find a new bestseller. Don’t focus on past mistakes and faux pas that you may have made in your last relationship; you’ve lived, learned, and now know better. Go into your new relationship with an open mind and do not compare it to your last. It might be tricky at first because you saw great qualities in your ex, but would you compare a modern age fiction book to the likes of Shakespeare? No; So focus on new potential and move forward.
