    How long does it take to start a new relationship after a breakup?

    If you broke up with your boyfriend and meet someone new, what are some things you would watch out for?  Attitude?  Promises?  Committment?

    Starting  a new relationship after breaking up after an old one really depends on a number of variables.
    For example:
    How long did the couple date?
    How old were both people in the relationship?
    Was there a large age difference?
    Did one take the relationship more seriously?
    Watching out for someone's attitude is important;but when either side make promises too soon, that may indicate a serious problem.
    Commitment takes two and not right away. Don't rebound into a new relationship so soon and work on yourself first.

    If I feel that I've met a great mate the very next day then "let's get it on!"

    Everyone should have (their own) "mate selection criteria".
    Know yourself, Love yourself, Trust yourself.
    Like attracts like and opposites attract divorce attorneys!
    The goal is to find someone who shares your same values, wants the same things for the relationship, naturally agrees with you on how to obtain those things, and last but not least there is a mutual depth of love and desire for one another.
    It takes a time investment "screen candidates". Don't rush it.
    Ultimately you are the only one who knows what (your type) is. Dating is akin to conducting interviews for the position of your mate.
    If someone hasn't taken the time to determine what they want and need in a mate (before) they start pursuing relationships they're likely to allow "impulsive connections" and "happenstance" to dictate their relationship choices.
    That's the equivalent of going shopping without a list!
    Never separate your mind from your heart when making relationship decisions. The purpose of the mind is to protect the heart.
