How to know if you're ready to start dating after a divorce
Add to myWE:
There is no timeline on when you'd be ready to move on. Each and every man is unique and heals at their own pace and has different coping mechanisms. If you have all the signs or most of them below, then chances are you're ready to move on!
You don't feel angry or sad
After a divorce or separation, it's perfectly normal to feel angry, depressed, or anxious. Basically, you'll experience a rollercoaster of emotions. Again, this is not unusual. However, when these emotions have gone away or they no longer are a part of your life, then you're ready!

Single life has become normal
When coming home to an empty house with no partner waiting for you isn't so bad anymore. You've adapted to the single lifestyle and it no longer feels strange. If you're a single dad, you look forward to being home with your kids and you feel like you can manage your parenting duties without your ex.
You've accepted what happened
Whether the divorce was your ex's fault or yours, you've come to terms with it and you've realized that it happened for a reason and there's nothing you can do about it. This is another sign that you have healed.
You can have a conversation with your ex
It's understandable that for most, it is extremely difficult to have a conversation or communication with the ex. However, when they are kids involved, irrespective of who has custody, you will need to face her and when you do it, you don't feel anything for her. Be it feelings of anger or hurtfulness.

You don't feel guilty when you're attracted to someone
When you see someone on social media or in a public place and you feel attracted to her without feeling guilty, chances are you're likely to move on. For some men, who do feel guilty, it means that they haven't gotten over their ex.
Your sex drive has increased
This might not be the case for all. Some men's libido might have dropped after divorce and for others, it might have been the same. However, if you're one of those who experienced a decrease and now it's back up, then you're ready to start dating again.
You don't think about the past anymore
Good memories will always be yours to cherish but when you don't dwell over the past anymore, then you're on the right track. It's better to heal while you're single rather than when you start a new relationship. Often at times, people drag the issues of their past relationships into their current ones.

You feel good about yourself again

Take it slow
You might have healed but that doesn't mean you should jump into a new relationship immediately. Take some time to get to know your new partner first before tying the knot.
