4 Telltale Signs That You’re Ready to Love Again

After going through a painful and brutal breakup, you should take some time off from dating activities and give yourself time to heal. Mending a broken heart takes time, and it’s always best to focus on yourself first. When it’s finally time to get back up on the dating game, then you’ll be all the better for it. The problem is, not all people seem to know when they’re ready to date again. Finding a new partner again and going through all the process of dating and entering a relationship isn’t always a walk in the park. If you’re having trouble convincing yourself it’s time to see other people, here are four signs that tell you you’re ready to love again.

Facing Life While Being Single Isn’t a Problem for You

For some people, they dread being single after a breakup. It’s like a massive part of your life suddenly disappeared, and you’re left with that void. While that may be true for a moment, eventually, you start to fill that void with other things that you can enjoy while being single. One of the benefits of being single is spending some quality time with yourself. It may be hard at first, but when you finally feel that being single is great, then it’s probably time to date again. There’s a saying that goes, “when you finally feel like you don’t need to be dating is the perfect time to do so.”

Thinking About the Past Doesn’t Bring Up Negative Emotions

Getting over a past relationship doesn’t mean you forget about everything that happened. It’s all about looking back and not experiencing those negative feelings again. Those feelings of fear, hate, betrayal, or sadness shouldn’t manifest themselves whenever you think about the past. At the very least, it shouldn’t be as painful as it was before. Instead, you look back on those moments and think of what the future holds for you now that you’re single again.

Your General Mood Has Improved

A sure-fire sign that you’re ready to date again is by consistently being in a good mood. You get that spring in your step, that smile on your face, and that cheerful demeanour back again after those moments of gloom are done. You’ve finally learned to let go of all that sadness, anger, and insecurity. This means the dark cloud of your breakup has finally disappeared, and you’re ready to face the world and start seeing people again.

You No Longer Feel Bad When You See Other Couples

After a breakup, you can’t really help but feel bad for yourself when you see other happy couples around you. That’s a natural emotion to feel after having your heart broken. But like any other emotion, it doesn’t last forever. You’re able to watch romantic movies again and feel good about seeing your friends being happy with their special someone. Feeling genuine happiness for others without that lingering feeling of jealousy and heartache means you’re ready to be happy with someone else again.


Getting back on your feet after a painful breakup is one of the hardest things to experience when it comes to your personal life. While it’s not the end of the world, all your suffering will soon end after spending some time with yourself. Eventually, you’ll start to see all these signs, which means you’ve finally moved on and are ready to try love again.
