I think it’s important to take time to heal from divorce.
People need time to adjust to the major changes that divorce brings: different living situations, moving, financial struggles, and having to share time with your kids. It’s the death of your hopes, dreams, and beliefs that you will spend the rest of your life with your spouse. It’s wise to wait a year or so, so that you can evaluate your life, take inventory of who you are, change the things about you that you don’t like, and discover what exactly you’re looking for in a partner.
There’s something to be said for not having shaving gel and toothpaste globs stuck to your sink.
Not having to pick up laundry from the floor brings me utter joy.
I’ve been divorced for five years and I only recently started dating again.
