Congratulations! You’re ready to start dating again, and your optimism is going to make dating a rewarding experience. You’re taking the right steps when it comes to opening yourself up—you’re willing to put yourself out there and you’re letting your last relationship be a jumping off point to help determine what you want in a partner. Your past isn’t holding you back, but rather, it’s propelling you forward and enabling you to make a deeper, more significant connection with a significant other in the future.
With this in mind, it’s important to keep putting yourself in situations that push the envelope and enable you to engage with new people. 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). Keep joining new cliques, and you just might click with someone new.
You’re 99% ready to start dating again, and reaching 100% is not very far off. 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. But it’s important to remember that this is a perfectly normal way to feel. Getting over someone is a process, and you should be proud of the progress you’ve made.
