I dont really believe it takes a new relationship to get over an old one. I did start dating again and I ended up with what I had just left. There are many stages to grieving. Denial, anger, deal making, depression and the last one is acceptence. I was in the depression stage for a long time. It sounds like that is where you are at too. You didnt say how long you where with him. That comes into play as well, the length of time you where together and if you have children together. Have you gotten into counseling? Counseling can be an amazing tool to help you work through the depression. There are depression meds that can help too, depending on your beliefs. Bottom line for me was that I had to learn how to be ok with myself. I can keep going out there and finding more jerks or I can relax and learn how to enjoy the ride. A man can add to your life, but a man cant complete you. That has to come from within.
