How do you know when you're ready?

Boyfriend of almost 2 years and I broke up a month ago. I knew it was coming for awhile so it didn't hit me very hard. My friends are trying to set me up on dates but I honestly just want to be by myself for awhile. They think this is crazy and I should jump right back in. I think I'm ready, but I really don't want to.

  • When you're ready, you will feel comfortable going out on dates. Just don't miss out on a great oppurtunity.

  • You answered your own question, you're not ready yet. Take time for yourself, I'm sure you deserve it.

  • you'll now when your ready but what your friends should be doing is just getting you out and letting you find yourself again... it's may not of hit you hard but it still hurts... you may not be ready to move on.. and just after 2 months really isn't a long time to just jump right back in either... take a minute for you

  • Don't allow your friends to push you into dating if you're not ready. You'll know when you're ready...
