Relationship Thursday: Dating When You're Not Over Your Ex


Relationship Thursday. This is the day where we stop for minute and dive into a topic pertaining to dating and relationships. What do you do when you're ready to dive back into the dating pool, but still have strong feelings for your ex?

The experts say, first, figure out WHY you want to get out there. If you're getting back out there only to try to forget about someone, instead of look for a well-suited partner for you, think again. You, also, may want to re-think things if you're dating to make your ex jealous. This is not fair to your new date and it's not, ultimately, fair to you.

Experts, also, say be honest with the person you're dating. You don't have to go into all the gory details of your breakup, but you can explain that you're hurt and need to take it slow. If they agree to walk at your pace, you might have a keeper. If not, they may be someone you're not interested in anyway.

Good luck and be good to your heart.
