How long should someone who has just broken up with her relationship wait before starting another? Does the time to start another relationship has anything to do with the way the relationship ended?

I don't think there is a set amount of time. I think it depends on the seriousness of the relationship and how it ends. If you are married and divorced then you will probably wait longer before getting to a new relationship in comparison to someone you have been dating, but not living with or anything. The last relationship of mine that ended was then followed by new relationship one week later. This was quite quick, but since it had been rough ground for a while mentally I had broke up with my boyfriend a long time ago.

Yeah I am fine, I was not really down or anything straight after anyhow, I move on quickly. I have been in my "new" relationship for nine months now.

Nothing in particular really. It is because of the person themselves. If they are ready to start a new relationship, then go on, make a move. You don't have to wait until some particular time of being single to get to a new relationship. What are you worrying about? Society? People who will make gossips about you because you get into a new relationship too fast? Well, the society knows nothing about you. They don't know how fasr you can move on to a new life. The only thing is that when you are ready to have a new relationship, then go for it.

no i don't believe it. I just think that everything has it's time. When it comes sooner than what you've thought, why don't you take the chance and move on? Never think that something is too soon, there is never too soon and too late for something.

it depends on the individual;. it is not something that can be measured by any time frame. it depneds how quickly you can move on from it.

It totally depends on the depth of the relationship you had with that person, which differs from person to person...many people try and come over it, but a few of them just wont make up their mind, just feel worrying and worrying about the things happend, past is past...lets move into the future which has much to offer

You know it really depends on the relationship, the reason for the split, the length of the relationship that kind of thing but you know what if you want to go out with someone new the same night as the split that's ok to. Who sets the rules for your life?

i guess 2 years is enough to start a new relationship or it depends on the person if she/he already move on.

It depend upon persons how he feels. Some person may start an other relationship immediately. And some may take long time. There also some person who may never try for any other relationship as they fear from breaking up that relationship too. Its depend on your emotional strength and how you take breakups in your relationship.

i think it depends. different people hold different views and actions. if it is true love,it may take one or two year to get rid of the old momery.it is my style.

I believe the length of time one goes from relationship to relationship is dependent on the person experiencing it first hand. Each person is different and recovery times differ. For me though, when I was part of the dating scene, there would be a length of several months in between to allow things to mend. However, I know if my husband and I were to separate, it would take several years before I would even consider another partner. So I guess with me it would be dependent on the length of time and how much emotional time I had put into the relationship with another person, that would be deciding factor for me to move on and find a new mate so to speak.

The emotional period aspect is very important and considering the fact that you were married (facts obtained from your response) probably with children,i can understand that.

As fast as she is ready to start a relationship again. But if she only enter a new relationship just to forget the ex. She should not do it. It will make matter worst. And unfair for the new guy.

oh, i would think the length of time is directly proportional to how it ended. if someone i loved broke up with me it would take me some time to: cry over it process it mourn it recover from it sometimes i think people dash into another relationship without LEARNING anything from the one they just left.
