“You should avoid just jumping into another relationship right away, you don’t want to fall into a rebound.”
But the thing is- Maybe we do.
Now, maybe the dating won’t hold up in comparison to your last relationship, and maybe you won’t be as invested. But maybe that’s a good thing. I tend to have a pattern, after I get heart broken, I meet someone I like being with, and I’ll date them for like 1-3 months. After that, I generally realize I’m not as invested as I should be, and end it.
It gives me someone to take my mind off my sadness, my heartbreak and the general feeling of being alone. Now, in saying this, I’m not saying to rush into anything serious. But dating after a break up can help you feel wanted, it can give you someone great to hang out with, and they can help you heal until you’re ready to be single again, and start looking for the real thing.
Don’t lead the other person on. Don’t tell them you love them if you don’t, don’t physically go super far, or you will hurt them, and that’s not right.
But when people tell you not to date after a heart break, ignore them. Remind yourself what’s out there.

Sorry this post is so short. I took a knee to the head at work, I’m nursing a mild concussion with a skull fracture and mild hemorrhage. Oh, the joys of coaching. So I’ll be here and there for a while, but I am coming back =).
On a side note: This hasn’t been my healthiest year has it =/.
