Top definition
The dead zone that one enters in between relationships; when it is too late to resume a past relationship and yet too soon to begin another.

This "relationship limbo", if you will, is usually encountered by people who have ruined their past relationship to such an extent that it cannot be repaired, and yet cannot move on to another as the pain of said breakup is still too near. There is no way to move back and yet no way to move forward, and the sufferer is left in a no-man's land of loneliness and netflix.
Person A: hey, you and Jenny broke up like two weeks ago and all you've done is lie in bed and watch Netflix. You must have seen every episode of Hannibal at least five times now. Come out with us and find someone else.

Person B: BUT I DON'T WANT ANYONE ELSE.

Person A: then go tell her you're sorry!

Person B: NO. IT'S OVER FOR GOOD NOW.

Person A: then come out and meet someone else!!

Person B: BUT I CAAAAN'T

Person C: fuck. she's got a serious case of relationship purgatory.
