What are ways to tell you’re ready to date after a divorce?

Cupid’s Advice:

While it’s important to take time to mourn the end of a marriage, you can’t stay single forever!  Cupid has some advice on how to know when you’re ready to date after a divorce:

1. You’re okay being alone: Don’t jump into a rebound relationship right after a divorce.  Take time to grieve, and get used to being by yourself before you start dating again.

2. You have a support group: You shouldn’t go through a divorce alone.  Lean on friends and family when you’re feeling low.  They can also help you decide when you’re ready to enter back into the dating world.

3. You’re healthy: Often people turn to alcohol or food to help ease the pain of a divorce.  Make sure you don’t overindulge too much, and wait until you’re healthy before you start seeing someone new.
