You can control how fast you go and how open you are to the other person regarding where you are in the dating and your own self-reflection.I just read your other thread and by the looks of it, it may be too soon.
There's nothing keeping you from pursuing new dating beyond your own decision. If you set up these meets with lots of people and right away, you'll avoid the fantasy building of too much e-communication.
If you're still hung up on the last one, then dating is only likely to amplify that rather than distract you from it. Grasping that most people are NOT our match is practical and avoids taking rejection personally.
But if you're feeling good about yourself, and you're invested in other aspects of your life beyond dating, then you get to choose how resilient you want to be. Think of singles as each holding their own puzzle piece.
When those pieces don't match, it's nobody's 'fault,' it just speaks to that fact that true simpatico, whether with friends or with lovers, is rare. If love were not rare, what would be so special about it?
