How long after divorce to start dating
Coming out of a relationship can be a miserable time.
And since misery loves nothing so much as company it is difficult to withstand the temptation to forget about what ails you by jumping into another relationship.
As anyone who has ever been there will tell you, be sure to stay away from any new relationships until you are good and ready.
When you're on the rebound, you are especially vulnerable and could put yourself in situations or relationships that you normally wouldn't be caught dead in.
But if you're beginning to get serious about someone new too soon after the separation, you may be getting in over your head.
And don't worry if all your dates fail to measure up to the one that got away. After all, how can mere strangers ever compare to someone you once called "cookie toes." Eventually as you put more and more experiences between the time of your breakup and the present day you'll be ready for a new, and hopefully improved, relationship which may just force you to retire the phrase "on the rebound" from your vocabulary altogether.
You've made the plans, confirmed the plans, and now it's time to get down to business.
And chances are that come sunup you'll be looking at your agenda and shaking your head in bewilderment or disgust.
The more times you resist the impulse to come crawling back, the better you'll get at spending time without an escort.
Since you've probably been out of circulation for a while, here are some of the rules of the new Dating Game – from Rebound Relationships to the Ten Commandments of Dating.
