When we are in a relationship for a long period of time we can become comfortable and complacent. We may stay in the relationship even though we aren’t happy. Having to start over and the fear of the unknown, also keeps couples together when things aren’t working out between them.
Men and women often dread being alone or having a single status again. Cheating is an option some people will take when they want to hold onto who they are with while they look for their replacement. Some would rather cheat on their partner, than to get rid of them. Thinking a man will change is also a big mistake women tend to make. Wasting time in a relationship that’s going nowhere isn’t worth it.
Some people feel a sense of loss or failure when a relationship ends, even when they weren’t compatible. Sometimes, it’s just the stigma society places on being coupled, or an emotional attachment to someone who is emotionally detached from you.
Getting back into the dating scene and taking it slowly is the best way to heal and to take your mind off the hurt. There’s something to be learned from each relationship. Now that you are free, take the time out for yourself. Hang out where there are plenty of men, since you are single and ready to mingle. Remember, someone better is out there waiting for you.
