It’s a good idea to focus on yourself and work on your own issues before getting involved with anyone else again. Rediscover yourself first. Heal your mind and heart first. In the process of divorce, you’re likely to have a new house or apartment, you may lose some of the friends you shared as a couple, and your economic situation may change. You may have primary custody of your kids and be a single mother for the first time. Get your new life in order first, before you look for love again. When you realize that you’re no longer bitter over the divorce and can remember the good times spent in your marriage, you will have found a perfect time to date. Accepting your role in what went wrong in your marriage is another sign that you’re ready to move on.
