Is it fair to be on dating websites knowing you are still involved with an ex or coming out of a relationship? It has probably happened to most of us who goes on dating apps to find a genuine person to end up finding a person with a lot of baggage. “I’m still living with my ex.” “She still hits me up at night but she means nothing.” “I like you but I think there’s still something there with my ex.”

If you have never heard any of these saying, you are choosing the good ones. If you have experienced talking to a person on a dating site with these problems, it is the worst.

Traditionally, dating sites and apps are for singles looking for someone with common interests. However, those who just got out of a relationship are in a dilemma of whether they can go on a dating app since they are technically single.

We asked our horny huskies on our Instagram @BUVoice of when is it okay to jump on dating apps: immediately after a break up or to give it some time. The results were 26% in favor of signing up immediately after while 74% of people were in favor of taking it slow. As Generation Z, it is interesting to see students voting more in favor to taking it slow rather than going on your phone to find a new partner.

Depending on the relationship, you should know when is the right time to get back into the dating world. If your relationship was long term, you should give yourself some time to collect your feelings. If they break-up was due to a cheating scandal or an abrupt end, you may think revenge will may you feel better when it truly doesn’t. Take your time and start slow.

Relationships typically do not end with a clean slate. One may end an exclusive relationship to start a friends with benefits relationship. Feelings will always be there between you and that person which becomes difficult to handle when you are on dating apps. Bringing a new relationship around your old one can cause a lot of problems.

Dating apps can be an ego-booster. You may enjoy the flirting and likes you get, feeling valued. However, it is important to remember you do not need to be with someone or receive compliments to be important or valued. You are sufficient. Realizing that after a breakup is hard but crucial.
It is up to you to know when you are ready to date again. If you start dating new people while you are still having sex or talking to an ex, you’re not thinking of the other person you swiped right on. Change your perspective to understand the feelings of the person who may think you are ready for the next step but you’re just stringing them along.

A person may have different reasons for logging back into dating apps after a breakup. , it can be an ego-booster or to get revenge on an ex. It quite possibly be because you’re lonely or that’s your way of coping with the break up. Either way, be understanding to the person who may like you but it may be too soon.

Step back and reconsider. Hang out with friends and plan activities. No one knows you better than you so be kind to yourself. Be safe and stay horny, Huskies.
