  • Well you guys got divorced for a reason...
    I would date around a little and question what made you get divorced.

  • stay far far away from him
    it is natural to have some feeelings, you were married, but i agree with above, you divorced for a reason
    my parents seperated/divorced 12 years ago, i think my mom sill allways love him, but she thinks he is an idiot and an ass

  • i agree with kbmancine! feelings are still there, probably because you were once married to this guy. but if another part of you knows to let him go, try to date a little

  • The divorce is still fresh and definitely there are still feelings involved. Not sure what your reasoning behind the divorce was, but I'm sure it was a good one. Your ex is just realizing what he lost and can't handle the fact that your moving on. Give yourself time to find yourself. You don't need to rush straight into the dating scene right away. That's the mistake a great deal of women make.

  • I would remember why I divorced him in the first place

  • I wouldn't date yet... Anyone for that matter. Keep your distance from your ex (meaning not hanging out or calling etc etc that will only keep your feelings fresh) but don't start dating yet if you still think you have feelings for your ex bc you will sabbatoge any relationship you get into. I personally think you should give it 6 months and see what your feeling then, If you still think you may have feelings for your ex call him up and hang out a while see what happens. But if in 6 months you realize your feelings arent as strong as they were/are now or non exsistant even then move on and start dating other guys. Good Lick in everything

  • I can't say whether you are ready to start dating or not, but I do think that dating others would be a good idea, when you are ready. If, in fact, you are still in love with the ex, dating will help you realize that and help you figure out what needs to be done to fix the relationship. And if you are not still in love with him, dating will help you see what a nice, good guy should treat you like and what a good relationship should be like and enable you to stay away from the ex. Good luck!
