How long should you wait after getting out of a relationship before getting into a new one?

I've just left a one year relationship, it was the perfect relationship we just couldn't handle the distance. How long do I wait before trying again?

Really depends on how you feel emotionally and if you are ready to move on. My past 2 relationships I have moved on right away without an issue

I'm comfortable emotionally. I love my ex but we have both agreed that we are done unless our paths bring us back together, LDRs are tricky. I feel moved on, it feels like he is just my best friend again rather than my ex.

I was in a similar situation with former-Master - year long, long-distance, agreed that the distance couldn't be worked with. I was dating my now-boyfriend about five months later. I needed the time to decompress after such an intense relationship (D/s) and find myself again because of my sub role having me feel like a dog being abandoned on the side of the road. My boyfriend came along when I wasn't expecting to get with anyone.

If you feel ready, go ahead and date. There are no "required mourning periods".

When you're ready. What's the rush? When you find the right guy you will know. No sense being in a relationship just for the sake of it.

If you feel you are ready to move forward an try again then go for it. I am often told that I move on to quickly.

When you feel ready. Everybody is different. Every relationship is different, and if relationships end, every recovery period is different. Then again sometimes meeting the right someone can be the thing that gets you ready to date.

I agree with this.

Personally, I go through long periods of being single after a relationship. I enjoy it. Usually around a year or so. It's liberating to me.
