Nairobi - Are you ready for a new relationship? Or not?
You do not do comparisons between your date and your dates
Going on rebounds is the first sign that you are not ready for a new relationship. I am not saying that rebounds are horrible but most of them are not relationship-material and while you are at it, you are trying to figure out if they are better than the ex or same or worse than the ex. In most cases you are looking for an upgrade.
Once you stop doing all that, it is a sign that you are moving on. When you move on and give yourself a break that is when you might be ready for something new.
It is not right after the break up
That time you give yourself by just being alone, most don’t value it but it is important. This is when you figure yourself out, find out what you want and for self-love. You cannot be somebody’s if you are not somebody on your own.
It is not because you are alone
Loneliness is the reason a lot of couples are in poor relationships. You are using it to fill a void and you are creating a sort of co-dependence whereby, you cannot be by yourself. You need to enjoy your alone time before bringing someone else into it. If you cannot do that, you are doing it all wrong.
You are ready to invest yourself emotionally
If you cannot open up to them, you are not ready for a relationship with them. If you want to hide some parts of you and beat around the bush, you are not ready for a relationship with them. The [person you are meant to be with, will make you excited to want to talk to them about you and let them in.
