Dating someone out of a long term relationship
Now, here’s something eminently common that tends to happen in the dating scene, and much more often than one might think if I may say so myself.
People will tell you that they want to date you when they’ve recently gotten out of a relationship. Has anyone else ever experienced someone saying any of those things when they’re hoping to date you? And many times, they were people that were married, saying that they were separated, and they always ended up not being emotionally available.
Everyone deserves to feel loved and adored, and if you date someone too soon after they just get out of a relationship—Especially, a long-term relationship—then there’s a 99.9999% chance that they’re not going to fall for you on any level, let alone a deeper one.
But what I am telling you, is that the chances are slim to none that someone will take you or a relationship with you seriously, and for an extended period of time.

No one, and I mean NO ONE is ready to date someone with pure intentions right after getting out of another situation that didn’t work out. I’m not talking about dating someone after you’ve gone out on a couple of dates or even explored a very short, one week or so relationship.
Time and healing is essential in order to get back up on your feet, to feel rejuvenated enough to be able to give someone a blank, clean slate, and to fall in love. Not much healing is usually required for a situation that was short and ended abruptly as such.
