After a breakup, it is often difficult for people to consider dating again for a while. When they meet someone new, they may not be expecting to get into another relationship. Life often throws people curve balls, and this may be the perfect person for them. They may find they like and care about this person enough to begin a new relationship despite their fears.
People often find relationships where and when they least expect them. Painful as it is, staying in a relationship that doesn't work is not a good idea. It takes time for the pain to heal, but life does not always wait for the healing process to be complete. People often find themselves beginning a new relationship long before they believe they are ready. Being brave and taking a chance might lead them to a lifelong commitment with the person that is just right for them.
