So what is the acceptable amount of time to wait after a relationship breaks up?

Before seeing someone else?

H is convinced I've met someone else, when that couldn't be further from the truth, I'm simply not interested in anyone, he was enough stress!

He woke me up last night after a night out to tell me he could have 'pulled' but he still loved me, is he wasting his time (yes, I dumped him, I don't want him back! duh)

I had a nose on his phone (yes, wrong I know, quite frankly I don't give a toss as he does worse daily and I didn't care what I found) and he's asked his cousin (it sounded jokingly) to set him up with a friend.

It honestly doesn't bother me, in fact it would probably do him some good. However, I'm wondering how soon is too soon, as if he went off and shagged someone everyone would say he's grieving for our relationship, if I did it I'd be called a slut...

We've been apart exactly a month.

Any thoughts?

I don't think there's a set time you should wait. We're all different. You never know who you might meet tomorrow or the next day!
My ex met someone quite soon after we split (long story) but I was quite relieved cos at least he stopped bugging me and it gave me some freedom.
Hope this helps smile
