If you've recently had a break-up, you may wonder how soon is too soon to begin dating again. Bustle believes there are two important questions that you need to ask yourself before you decide to put yourself out there in the dating world.

  • "Have I let go of my ex?" This is important because if you're still mad at them or just want to make them jealous by dating someone new so soon after a break-up then you are not ready to date again yet. You will only get hurt again, or hurt someone else in the process.
  • "Am I excited for the future?" Just because you may be over your ex doesn't necessarily mean that you need to start dating again. There are a number of other aspects of your life that you can focus on and put effort into. You should be excited for the future when you put yourself out there again, and that should be in all aspects of your life.

The best way to ensure that your next relationship will be better than your last one is to make sure that you're in a better place emotionally and physically. Your next partner deserves your best you.
