How do you know when you're ready to start dating again?

You don't want to hold yourself back, but you don't want to use someone as a rebound either. Obviously breakups and recovery time vary based on the relationship, which means there's no hard and fast rule for when to enter a new one. But if you're thinking about getting back in the dating pool, here are a few red flags that mean you might not be ready just yet. Whether you use your ex as a golden standard or scrutinize potential beaus for their old annoying habits, this is a major sign that you still have a lot of baggage from your last relationship.

Even though you might be angry—not wistful—if your ex is constantly on your mind, it means you're not over them.

They're still willing to try...

It's unfair to the other person and to you to rush into something when you haven't let go of past feelings for a SO, even if those feelings aren't necessarily positive. But when you find out they're single aka availableyou get cold feet. This is a sign that you like the idea of a relationship, but don't want to actually dive into one just yet.
