You’ve been through a bad relationship. Are you ready to date again? Let’s talk about it.
Whether you were divorced, just broke up with someone or enjoyed being single, you decided to take a “leave of absence” from the dating scene.
There’s nothing wrong with that (in fact, I encourage it!).
However, time has gone by, and it’s time to move forward.
How do you know when it’s time to start looking for “Mr. Right” and start living the next chapter of your life?
Here are seven signs to let you know it’s time:
1. Your work/life balance is pretty stable.
You’re content with your current lifestyle and there are no major stressors (that you know of) consuming the bulk of your time and energy.
Things are moving along in a consistent pattern. Your job is pretty secure and you haven’t experienced anything major in your life since that horrible breakup. Life is actually upbeat and you enjoy it.
2. You’re taking good care of yourself.
You are physically healthy. You’re mentally healthy. You’re connected with a spiritual outlet.
You take the time to do things that excite you and make you happy.
You’re at a really good place in your life right now. You love who you are, you’re feeling yourself because of it and the world doesn’t stop you from doing so.
3. Your ex is no longer a bitter presence in your mind.
You can actually sleep at night without pondering the same-ole’ bitter thoughts of, “How could he do this to me?” and, “What did I do wrong?” or, “he is going to regret leaving me!”
