I was once a believer of the three month rule but I guess after going in and out of relationships, I begin to realize that it’s nothing more than a pathetic, socially imposed “norm”. I honestly have nothing against people who believe it - we have different ways of living anyway (and a little variety’s fun too) but this “rule” doesn’t work for everyone and that includes me. Yes, I get that this three month rule aims to give respect to the past relationship and all that jazz but I guess all that mainly depends on how both parties think and react. I believe that jumping into a relationship without following this “norm” is acceptable and it doesn’t mean you don’t respect the past one. 


I really don’t believe in this 3 month rule thing because i believe that when its over, its over. When its time to move on, move on. and if you’re already in love with someone new, go for it right?. Screw what other people will say!
People have different span of moving on anyway. In my opinion, this three month rule is like putting up your best foot forward. For me it’s just a face you put up to make yourself look good to other people. But ask yourselves why? Why do you have to make yourself acceptable in their eyes based on society’s “ideal character”? Will you just let society dictate to you what’s right and wrong? What will make you happy? What if in the process you found someone? Or better, you’ve been found? Will you just let that pass? Will you wait? Honest to God, I won’t.

Who are we to care what people think, anyway? And mainly, who are we to judge?





If you haven't seen the movie One More Chance  (starring John Lloyd Cruzand Bea Alonzo), you're probably not aware about the "3-month rule." According to the movie, the 3-month rule is when you can't be involved in any kind of relationship in the span of 3 months after your previous one. Do you believe in this rule?



There are a lot of unwritten social rules for dating, especially among teenagers. One such is the idea that if a person jumps from relationship to relationship without a cool-down period in between, that somehow makes them loose or immoral. This isn't true; far more likely, such a person is desperately looking for something out of a relationship that they're not getting, and may not even fully understand what or why. 




It makes sense to take some time off after a breakup. There's likely to be confusion, bad feelings, mood swings, and other emotional pitfalls. It's hardly fair to the new suitor to start a new romance on such awkward terms. 



But the heart wants whatever (and whomever) it wants. Staying out of a relationship for a full three months just to avoid peer disapproval is hardly the best reason. Instead, take that new relationship slowly, whenever it happens: hang out as friends first, then go on the traditional first and second dates instead of jumping right in with both feet.
