What are some ways to tell if you’re ready to date again?

Cupid’s Advice:

After a rough split, it’s hard to tell when you’re ready to get back in the dating scene.  Here are a few ways to decide:

1. You’re in a good place:  Once you have fully recovered from your split and have had time to strengthen your bonds with friends and family, you should try dating again.  Your future relationships will be more successful if you start them with a good attitude and an open heart.

2. You no longer worry about your ex: Most people think about their ex for a while after the split.  Once you stop thinking about your ex and worrying about the mistakes in your relationship, you’ll be ready to move on.

3. You want to date again:  Ultimately, you should only date again if you want to.  Even if you are over your ex and content with your life, there is no need to jump right back into the dating scene.  Feel free to enjoy single life for as long as it pleases you.
