6 Things To Know About The Girl You Like Who Just Got Out Of A Relationship

Dating a girl who just got out of a relationship can be hard.


Sometimes in life, the person that we should or would have hoped to spend the rest of our lives with slips away in a blink of an eye. Love is a fragile and precious thing... When a relationship’s good, we believe it will never end. But life is unpredictable and beyond our control—sometimes it’s just not meant to be.

Dating a girl who just got out of a relationship can be hard. She might be still dealing with the aftermath of a messy breakup, slowly building her confidence and finding her way back into the dating world.

It’s never easy to do, but it takes time. If you find yourself liking or even falling in love with a woman who just got out of a relationship, remember that she needs to take time to review her life and her relationship goals. Here are a few tips to help you see where she’s coming from.

1. Don’t Rush Things

If you just met her, take your time to get to know and understand who she is. But if you already know her and have for some time now, that’s even more of a reason to let her heal on her own. If you’re gaining feelings for her and want to let her know how you feel just to get it off your chest, this may not be the best time.

2. She Still Feels Lost and Alone

No matter how much time that has passed, being heartbroken takes a big toll on us. She’s gonna feel lost and alone. And that’s okay. She doesn’t need a hero to come save her. There’s nothing wrong with spending a little time alone with our pain after a breakup. This is a pain she needs to feel.

3. Everyone Is Different

We all take breakups differently: sometimes we’re happy that it ended, other times we didn’t have a say in the matter. Healing comes in many ways. Allow her to grieve the loss of the relationship. She’s saying goodbye, not only to the relationship, but to the dreams, goals and commitments that were once shared with her ex.

4. She’s Not Ready

Rather she has feelings for you as well, this could be bad timing. For both of you, you have to remember that this is her time now. She’s doing something that she hasn’t really done before. Focusing on her life. This may be a hard thing for you to do. It could be that you have all these feelings inside of you that you need to let out. But by doing so, it could hurt the friendship that you two have built. The best thing you could do is be there for her. Not in the, ‘I like you’ way. But in the friend way.  

5. Her Standards Are Different Now

Standards always change when you go through a breakup, hopefully for the better. Being in a relationship, you sometimes forget who you are and the things you wanted to do in life. It happens. A breakup can shake you out of your comfort zone and put you back on the path to achieving your goals. Just remember she may be focusing more on her career or her personal goals than seeking a serious relationship right now.

6. Remember That A Relationship Is Not Want She Needs Now

Jumping into a new relationship isn’t something that’s going to help her move on from her ex or make her heal faster. If you truly care for her and want to see something happen between the both of you, you shouldn’t be so fast to be her rebound. No matter how many months go by. If she has that same desire that you feel in your heart, she will be yours.
