Dating after a Breakup

It is tempting to keep seeing each other or spend time together after a breakup - you know each other so well, and itīs so easy to do. Be very careful - one of you may be secretly hoping to get back together again, and if the other does not, this period of time can cause far more harm than good. It is usually best to distance yourself for a while, to let the breakup truly set in as a reality. Hopefully you can remain friends, but it should be clear that friendship is now what you should both expect - nothing more.
