How long should someone wait before starting a new relationship?
While there is no “magic number” for how long to wait before beginning a new relationship, think in terms of months rather than weeks. Some experts suggest that you should wait a month for every year that you were in the relationship before jumping back into another one.
What is a normal relationship timeline?
Some people get engaged within months, while others wait years, decades, or they never do. Any of this is okay. Its even okay to never get married if you dont want to. But the average timeline for getting engaged is somewhere around the 1 ½ to 2-year mark.
