Dating Quiz: Are You Ready To Date Again?
Almost Ready To Start Dating Again, But Not Quite

You could be ready to start dating again, if only you didn't burst into tears fairly regularly when thinking about your ex. There is still some residual hurt and shame that needs to be dealt with, and avoiding the problem isn't going to make it go away. It's time to face your breakup and really look at what went wrong, why, and what you can learn from the situation. Take some time to focus on yourself with these breakup comforts, read a couple of breakup books, and honor yourself and the pain you are feeling. In time, you'll be able to run into your ex without feeling upset or the need to run away, and that's when you should start looking to meet singles.
