Dating before you’re ready
If you’re just throwing yourself back into the dating game in order to avoid the pain of a recent breakup, you know that rarely ever works. You keep trying to run faster and faster from the feelings you don’t want to process. You plow through dates and flings, hoping that pain will go away, but it probably doesn’t. You can process now or you can process later, but putting it off just means wasting your own time and the time of those you date. If you’re still hurting from a failed relationship, you probably aren’t ready to date and any efforts in that area are a waste of time for now.
