How to begin dating again
It’s evident that you’re opening yourself up to the possibility of finding someone new.
However, it’s clear that you still have some doubts about the future and can’t help but think of your ex from time to time.
Getting over a past relationship is never easy, and while you’re still healing, you should be proud of the progress you’ve made.
But I thought it was an important question, which is why I want to analyze it with you. I made the conscious decision to move on instantly.
The only “right” answer is “whenever it feels right, as long as you’re not hurting anybody else.” The thing is: you might be surprised when you’re hurting someone else. The best example I can provide is from my own life. To me, it was the equivalent of being fired from a job. I was in no position to be a boyfriend to anyone but my beloved ex-girlfriend. My need to move on superseded her need to be with an emotionally available guy…. If so – if you’ve mourned, if you’ve healed, if you’ve made peace – then you’re ready whenever you say you’re ready.
Sign up for dating apps, go to singles events and find different groups in your area that are involved in activities that interest you.
While you may not meet someone at these gatherings, you’re widening your social network (and you never know who these people may know).
You’re ready to start dating again, and your optimism is going to make dating a rewarding experience.
