What are the best indications that you've actually moved on from a relationship?

Is missing the person normal even when you feel like you've been past the relationship?

You don't care if they are in a new relationship, you may even get to the point where you feel happy for the person that they found someone.

Like any other loss , though you have consciously moved on , the slightly painful scar remains .

When you realize you haven’t thought about them for a while.

[@11509,Keepitsimple] I still think of the person but I just noticed that I dont feel as much as before. I'm thinking maybe because my mind is just used to thinking about him.

[@1246510,CallistaSloane] Part of the process. It doesn’t have to be bad thoughts, it could be happy or indifference.

It's normal but healing if you get rid of pics you have of them and go on a lot of dates. Keeping busy helps too.

When you validate your new love and stop secretly soothing and protecting your ex.

Mine was getting thru a day without crying.

Missing the person means you probably have not moved on yet.

[@9416,Northwest] it's a bit confusing at times because I feel like I just miss the feeling. I dont even wish for the person to come back.

[@1246510,CallistaSloane] What you're missing is what you get from having an intimate partner. That's different from missing a specific person. Caution: don't let that feeling drive you into doing something you may not want to do, like jump into another relationship too soon, or re-connect with that person, you broke up for a reason.
