Back to dating

How do I handle how different the dating scene is from what I’ve known?

When it comes to post-breakup dating, there are two main philosophies: One is that, if you date right after a breakup, you're rebounding, which is unhealthy.

Then there's the whole idea that "the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else." Which is right?

Living away from them, I find it very hard that my sister gets to spend so much time with my dad, and potentially the amount of time she can spend with my other brothers and sisters.

They chatted and started seeing each other romantically. I have a sister from my mum, and brothers and sisters from my dad.

You’re at risk of both, not just from your past patterns, but also from your current fears of what the “new dating” can involve.

Remember to be the new-you instead — confident about who you are and what you can and cannot handle.

Let people know you’re ready to date, which will increase your chances of meeting recommended dates personally, not just online.
