You are only ready to start dating again when you don't feel like you have to have someone in order to be happy.

Never depend on someone else for your happiness. Another person cannot make you happy, and it is not another person's responsibility to do so.

It takes one year of healing for every four years of marriage. Some people have control over that in terms of working it through, and different people heal at different rates, so it's a general statistic. But I've found over time that it's a wise statistic.

married 11 yrs with him a total of 18 though...

I didn't start dating again until after the divorce (4yrs)...

It can be tough to get back into the dating scene. I was married for nine years and got back into it after about two, but lucked out and found Beth.
