Can’t bear to look at those momentos? Stick them in a box where you will promptly forget about them for 3 years, when you find them by accident looking for something else.
It is recommended that you wait at least 6 months, preferably a year, after ending a long-term relationship before starting a new relationship. Wasn’t a long-term relationship? The rule of thumb is 30-90 days. If you’ve had a bunch of back-to-back short-term relationships, you may want to take at least 6 months before starting a new one. Basically, you need to give yourself time to get rid of the baggage from your previous relationship(s) before starting a new one. We keep enough excess junk; we don’t need that baggage too.
