You don't go out of your way to make sure that you find the perfect relationship because you're the kind of zodiac sign that realizes that the perfect relationship was with your best friend the whole time. According to Winter, figuring out if you're actually ready to date doesn't depend on a specific timeline. But it can also be nerve-wracking because you feel like you have to be someone who is more committed to your partner than you are to yourself. Even if it's been a while since the breakup, there may be some lingering signs that you aren't ready to date someone new. You're not one to wait when you're feeling impatient and when you get that itch to start dating again, nothing in the world is going to stop you, but waiting a few months will slow you down. You need to learn how to embrace your fears without giving up pieces of yourself in the process.
