After the court case, the custody of your children and other issues have been worked out, the general rule of thumb is to allow yourself six months to a year to get back on your feet and get reacquainted with the single life.Use this valuable time to reconnect with your friends, family and most importantly yourself.Some people take longer than others and if you feel shaky and fragile, then take some more time for yourself. The Survivors Club with the exclusive advice of psychologist Amy Klein, a psychotherapist specializing in family care for over 15 years, has those answers for you.When you do start to see the light at the end of the tunnel and feel ready to go out and start dating again, you may have some questions: Where can I meet people who I actually will be interested in? Meeting Great New People Although the allure of the bar or night club may seem like a great place to meet your next partner or date, in fact the relationship will likely be short lived and lack common interests.
You don't want to make your ex angry before the divorce is final, unless you're willing to deal with a protracted battle and a potentially expensive settlement, instead of an amicable no-fault divorce.You don’t want to go from one relationship and jump into another relationship. I would tell anyone looking to start dating after divorce not to be in a hurry. I think it was year four when my ex came back and I started getting into the dating scene, because all of the sudden I had weekends open, and I was interested.I went on occasional dates, and I took advantage of that time and did the online dating routine.So it didn’t take me long to decide I wasn’t going to date a man who had not been divorced for more than one year. But I had to do a lot of changes, and that was my journey.Waiting that long was absolutely the right thing for me to do, but I can tell you that I don’t advocate for other women to follow my path, unless it’s evident that they need to do that.It doesn’t mean they’d talk negatively but they would talk about that time when this happened or whatever, and it was like they hadn’t healed yet.
