Dating a guy with a broken heart
But you didn’t, you listened to me talk about the past that still haunts me and took it so simply like it wasn’t something so bad.
You replaced my effort with that which was reciprocated. It was letting you in so carelessly and telling you everything from the best parts of me to my worst mistakes I thought you’d hear about and take off running.
You came into my life at a time when I was still healing. You took the pain and heartbreak I clung to and taught me I didn’t deserve it.
When I was still learning to live with the broken pieces of myself. It was simple gestures like grabbing my hand when I was driving or kissing my forehead. The excitement of someone new entering my life mixed the pain that was still present from someone in the past.

It was smiling and laughing and that reality hitting looking at you, that I had to move on and pretend I wasn’t still hurting so much. Because when you are conflicted with two very opposite emotions, pain from the past and liking someone in the present, what comes out of it is something a little numb.

All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. While it may be what we are instinctively inclined to do, dating before you are emotionally ready is a recipe for disaster. You're likely to feel awkward, unhappy, anxious and numb — and who wants to date that person?The fact is, it's nearly impossible to hide a broken heart; I know I fooled no one when I was trying to do so.All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. Trying to date immediately after a relationship ends is ill-advised.
