Is it normal to not be interested in dating after a breakup?
After a breakup, some people cant wait to get back into the dating scene, but some feel indifferent to dating for a longer period of time. But if you have a strong negative reaction to the idea of going on a date for a significant period of time post-breakup, thats an indication of relationship burnout.
Why do I have such a hard time with breakups?
The loss of the most significant person in our life causes us to experience distress, and in the early stages of relationship loss, this distress compounds. This is because our natural reaction when our partner isnt physically or psychologically present to meet our needs is to “up” the distress.
