Clean Slate

When is the right time to move on? Is there a time frame given to know when you are over someone or when that person is over you? I think you should allow yourself ENOUGH time, whatever timeframe that is… I’m sure the amount varies from person to person, situation to situation… There should also be time added for you to get yourself where you need to be, whether it be emotionally, physically, financially PRIOR to bringing someone else into your life. The new person doesn’t deserve to begin something with you with all of the added baggage from your previous relationship dumped onto them. It’s not fair to you and it’s certainly not fair to the new person. They are the innocent party and should begin with you with a clean slate, not one dirtied, muddied, and stained from the person before them…

I think you are right it does depend on the person and situation. It makes me think about my friend, Loretta. She broke up with her boyfriend of two years and two weeks later went on a date with a guy just to hook up with him and have a rebound lay. Well, they have been married 7 years. I guess she got over the other guy by dating her now husband. It was weird at the time that she started shacking up with him but now they are totally happy and stuff.
