Trouble dating after break up

It’s easy to be sucked into the gravitational pull of romance, affection, attention and infatuation. But for a relationship to succeed in the long run, it needs to be a positive part of your life, not your whole life.

If you have not dated in a while or your last relationship was really difficult and the ending dramatic, it is very wonderful to be cared for by someone and to feel attractive and interesting.You will leave even when you don’t want to go, and you will give yourself and the other person “space” even if they object.It is important to stay true to yourself and your life.The most important thing to succeeding in a relationship is, ironically enough, knowing how to spend time with yourself, and value yourself as a human being.

Before being with someone new, you have to learn to find new hobbies, interests and friendships that you won’t give up when a new love interest comes along.

Some have been dating a while; others are leaving decades long marriages.
