There seem to be two competing schools of though when it comes to the post-breakup recovery period. On Team One, we’ve got the old “Take some time to yourself” philosophers. On Team Two, we’ve got advocates for “Move on to the next one, and fast” type of advice.
Score one for Team Two, who’ve now got some scientific evidence on their side. Researchers in New York and Illinois recently conducted a study among 200 people, asking them to answer a series of questions about their current or next relationship (depending on whether or not they were single). The end result? Not only were those who had started a new relationship within seven months not suffering as a result of moving on too quickly, they were actually reporting even higher levels of well-being than those who stayed single.
