Cupid’s Advice:

Divorces can sometimes be messy business. Here are some ways to know you can find love again soon:

1. You are officially divorced: Making the agreement official will give you a clear state of mind on your new lifestyle. It will also save you from explaining any complicated problems while trying to date! Trying to date while still processing paper work, or moving out belongings can often be uncomfortable for those who have not experienced a divorced. Once you have a clean slate, then dating is never an issue!
