Should you date other people during your twin flame separation?

‍Twin flame separation is a difficult time on the twin flame journey and it is full of uncertainties.

So, what should you do during this time? Is it okay to date other people during twin flame separation?

We’ll get to the bottom of this question today and answer it in great detail for you!

What is a twin flame separation?

In order to get to the bottom of whether you should date during twin flame separation, we should first get very clear on what we are talking about here.

A twin flame separation is when two twin flames can no longer be together.

This can occur for many different reasons, with some being more common than others.

The most common reason for a twin flame separation is because the two souls are evolving in different directions.

This is often a very painful reason for a twin flame separation, as both twin flames have the desire to stay together.

Another reason for a twin flame separation is that one of the twin flames has not yet fully completed their soul’s purpose.

When this happens, it is almost always the case that the twin flame who has completed their purpose will push away their partner.

Also, it can happen when one of twin flames is holding onto something from the past (a trauma, negative beliefs, etc.). This can cause an impasse between the two.

So, whatever the case, the two twin flames are not on the same vibrational frequency anymore, and they most certainly trigger each other a LOT.

Twin flame separation is nothing other than a breakup between the twin flames, usually with no contact, sometimes they manage to stay friends.

Of course, the whole concept of twin flames is based on the fact that eventually, you will find your way back to one another in either this life or a different one.

So, the idea of a permanent twin flame separation is very far-fetched.

That being said, it is still a very real situation for many people who are experiencing twin flame separation.

So, should you date other people during your twin flame separation? Well, we’ll find out in a second!

When does the twin flame separation occur?

A twin flame separation happens when you and your twin flame feel very strongly that you can no longer be together as lovers.

There might be a variety of reasons for this. In some cases, one of you might be holding on to a past issue that is causing trouble in your relationship.

In others, you might have different ideas about where you are going in life.

If one of you wants to go to have kids, for instance, and the other does not, then this could cause a significant rift between you.

What’s more, if you feel that you have completed your life lessons, and your twin flame feels as though they have more to learn, this can also cause a rift.

Now: what happens a lot as well is that one of the twin flames becomes overwhelmed by the intensity of the relationship and runs away.

We also know this as the runner-chaser dynamic.

The runner is the one who is running away from their feelings, and the chaser is the one who is chasing after their twin flame.

If you are the runner, then you will be the one who pushes your twin flame away.

This can happen when you feel overwhelmed by your twin flame’s presence, or when your emotional needs are not being met.

In this case, it is important for you to recognize that there are ways in which you can heal yourself that do not involve pushing your twin flame away.

Why does a twin flame separation happen?

As we discussed above, there are many reasons why a twin flame separation happens.

However, the most common reason is that one or both of you have not yet finished your soul’s mission.

When you are in the process of completing your soul’s mission, it can put a strain on your twin flame relationship.

When this happens, one of you may feel pulled in two directions.

You may want to be with your twin flame and also finish your soul’s mission.

This can cause a lot of stress, confusion and feelings of being torn apart. As a result, one of you might push the other away and end the relationship.

However, many people believe that there is actually a much bigger, more important reason behind twin flame separations:

The time apart is needed in order to grow and evolve individually.

So, perhaps, there wasn’t anything inherently wrong with your relationship, you just have different things you need to learn right now.

But the one question prevails:

Can you date other people during your separation?

There are no set rules about whether or not you should date other people during your twin flame separation.

The decision is up to you and what you believe is the best course of action for your situation.

When you are in a twin flame relationship, you are probably dating someone who completes you in many different ways.

Having said that, it can be tempting to date other people who are available while you wait for your twin flame to return.

It is important to note that if your twin flame is your mirror soul, then dating other people will likely not feel as alluring as being with your twin flame does.

This means that it may be difficult to find feelings of being in love again if you date other people during your separation.

As always, your best bet is to follow your intuition.

If you feel strongly that you need to date other people while waiting for your twin flame to return, then go ahead and do it.

Again, think of it as a breakup. If you were broken up with your partner, you’d also be free to do whatever you choose, right?

It’s the same situation here.

You get to decide what feels right for you as there are no more moral obligations to be with your twin flame.

If it is not a full separation, just a break, you maybe shouldn’t date

There are some things you should take into consideration, though.

If you and your twin flame are just going through a break, then dating other people may create unnecessary karmic blocks in your relationship.

It is important to note that a break does not mean that your twin flame has left you forever.

It just means that you are taking some time apart to work out some issues.

It could be that your twin flame wants to focus on their career, or complete a certain task, before being with you again.

When this happens, it is often good to take some time apart from each other.

It gives you both the space you need to complete your individual goals while also strengthening your relationship.

When the time is right, you will reunite again and all will be well in your relationship again.

Now: if that is the case, you and your twin flame have likely talked about this already and know that this is more of a break than a breakup.

In that case, I do not recommend dating other people.

Think about it: you are only separated for a small amount of time, how would you feel if someone just didn’t wait for you and instead, just went ahead and dated other people?

I know I wouldn’t feel great.

However, that solely depends on your situation.

If you and your twin flame have talked about it and agreed that it’s okay to date other people, then go ahead.

Remember that you are only separated for a little bit, though.

It is important to make sure that you do not get too attached to anyone else until your twin flame returns.

If you do, then it may create unnecessary karmic blocks in your relationship.

This means that your twin flame may be uncomfortable with the idea of being with you again if they think you are still in love with another person.

The best thing to do is just wait until your twin flame returns before getting involved in any other relationships.

This will allow you both to focus on each other and ensure that your relationship will be stronger than ever before when it does happen!

You see, this will also help you build up some self-confidence and show you that you are a strong, independent person.

It will also help you realize that your twin flame is not the only person in the world who can make you happy, you can do that yourself.

While it is important to be with someone who makes you feel good about yourself, it is also important to be confident in yourself when they aren’t around.

Don’t put your life on hold for your twin flame

Okay, now let’s step away from the scenario that you are only separated for a set amount of time.

Let’s say you are separated indefinitely. What should you do?

Well, in my opinion, don’t put your life on hold for your twin flame.

What this means is that you shouldn’t put your own life on hold while you are waiting for your twin flame to return.

If you do this, you will likely create a lot of suffering for yourself, especially as the months and years go by.

What’s more, it’s possible that your twin flame isn’t coming back.

In this case, you will have missed out on the opportunity to be with someone who could have completed you in different ways.

Going out, meeting new people and having new experiences can actually help you to move on from your twin flame faster.

When you have new things going on in your life, you have less time to think about your twin flame and the breakup.

This can make the healing process much easier.

And when you are ready to re-open yourself to the possibility of finding a new partner, you can do so without any regrets about what you missed out on in the past.

You see, I don’t think that your twin flame is always the partner you are meant to be with.

They aren’t your soulmate, after all!

So, would you really be willing to spend your entire life waiting for your twin flame to come back when you could have been happy with your soulmate?

But how can you know for sure if you’ve met your genuine soulmate?

Let’s face it:

It’s not always easy to know when you’ve met “the one”. That’s why so many of us waste valuable emotions and time on relationships that never lead anywhere.

But what if there was a way to know for sure if you’ve met someone special?

I’ve just stumbled upon a way to do this… a professional psychic artist who can draw a sketch of what your soulmate looks like.

I wasn’t convinced at first, but then I gave it a go after a friend recommended it.

Now I know exactly what my soulmate looks like. Even more surprising – I’ve known them for years.

So, if you’re ready to find out what your soulmate looks like, get your own sketch drawn here.

I know, this is difficult to think about, but many twin flames will not reunite in this lifetime.

So, you have to choose.

Plus, remember that if it’s meant to be, your twin flame will return to your life eventually, no matter what you are doing or who you are with at the moment.

Don’t use dating to distract you from the pain of the breakup

Dating other people is a great way to distract you from thinking about your twin flame and the breakup. It’s a very popular way of moving on from someone.

However, just because it’s popular doesn’t mean it’s healthy or a good idea for you.

In my opinion, dating should not be used to distract yourself from the pain of separation.

All you are doing is masking the pain and making it worse in the long run.

You see, when you date someone new, you are not really allowing yourself to heal from your breakup.

Instead, you are just distracting yourself from it.

It’s like putting a band-aid on a broken leg. It’s not going to heal any faster!

When you do this, what happens is that you end up getting hurt again because you are giving your heart away too quickly and too easily.

You don’t allow yourself to get over your former relationship before jumping into something new. And this is a big mistake!

Plus, let’s be honest, it’s not very fair to your new partner, either, is it?

After all, you are still very much invested in your twin flame, so you can’t give this new partner the attention and love they deserve.

But wait, that’s not all.

When you date multiple people simultaneously after a breakup, it can be easy to get really attached to one of them.

This happens because you are spending a lot of time with them and getting to know them really well, clinging to them to distract yourself from the breakup.

And when the relationship ends, it can be hard not to take the breakup really hard.

Keep in mind that this time, the pain of your twin flame separation and the pain of the new breakup will show up simultaneously!

So make sure that you don’t use dating to distract you from your pain.

Instead, use dating as a way to fully heal after you’ve already done a majority of the work.

Once you feel ready to let go of the breakup, then you can start dating other people.

Let yourself grieve and heal before jumping into the dating scene again

As we’ve already discussed, timing is extremely important when it comes to dating.

If you jump into the dating scene too soon, before you are emotionally ready, it can lead to bad decisions and regret.

One thing you can do is give yourself time to grieve after your twin flame leaves you.

This doesn’t mean that you have to sit around and mope about your twin flame for months on end.

But you do need to give yourself enough time to fully process the breakup.

A good rule of thumb is to wait until you have stopped thinking about your twin flame every day.

This can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.

Grieving takes many shapes and forms for different people.

Some like to talk it out with friends, while others channel it into art or physical activity.

And while you are still grieving and processing, you don’t want to be in a new relationship.

It can be difficult to focus on someone else when your twin flame is still on your mind.

So give yourself time to grieve before you start dating again.

When the time is right, you will know.

Then, once you are ready to start dating again, make sure that you are doing so for yourself.

Don’t rush the process, and make sure that you are dating people you really like.

This will help to ensure that you don’t jump into a new relationship before you are ready.

And the best part?

You will have grown and you will be a better person because of it!

But this can still be a confusing thing to wrap your head around.

That’s why I recommend getting a personalized reading from one of the gifted advisors over at Psychic Source.

I mentioned them earlier.

They’ve been a great source of comfort and guidance when I’ve faced issues in my love life, and their specialist advisers are well trained in the area of twin flames.

So, what are you waiting for?

From giving you clarity on the situation to supporting you as you make life-changing decisions, these advisors will empower you to make decisions about your love life with confidence.

Will dating other people ruin your chance of getting back with your twin flame?

When you date other people while you are waiting for your twin flame to return, people fear that it can create karmic blocks in your relationship.

This means that if your twin flame does come back, they will likely be more reluctant to be with you again.

This is because they believe you will have created karma between the two of you that could potentially cause issues down the road.

Now: if you were completely broken up, karma is nothing to worry about. You aren’t doing anything inherently wrong.

However, if you date other people while waiting for your twin flame to come back, they may feel jealous or nervous that they will lose you again.

This can cause a lot of tension in your relationship from the very beginning.

Did you talk about the possibility of dating other people before your twin flame separation?

If you did, this shouldn’t be an issue.

And if you didn’t?

Look, if you take your time to process and grieve the twin flame relationship, and you and your twin flame still aren’t back together, then it is safe to assume that they aren’t coming back anytime soon.

This brings me back to the point of “don’t put your life on hold”.

You gave them a few months of time during which you processed the breakup, now is your time to find someone who will treat you the way you deserve to be treated!

Listen to your intuition

With all of this, it is crucial to just listen to your intuition. It really knows best.

Your inner voice will tell you when you are ready to get back out there and when to date new people.

Hopefully, you should now have a good idea of whether you should date other people during your twin flame separation.

But if you’d still like to get more clarity on the situation, speaking to a gifted advisor is the best way to go.

I mentioned Psychic Source earlier. Based on my own personal experience with them, I know they’re the real deal. Their advisors are kind and genuinely helpful.

So, if you really want to get to the bottom of what you should do now, get in touch with an advisor and take your future into your own hands. I did, and it changed my life.
