  • I would say at least one year, its gives you time to grieve over the loss of your marriage. It also allows you time to find yourself and for your children to semi adjust (if there is such a thing) and then I say move slowly if you have been married for some time then you will notice that things have changed in the dating world and you are not in Kansas anymore.

  • There is a lot of gray area. Everyone is different and there are a lot of scenarios but usually it will just happen on it's own right?

  • I waited 2 months but I knew the guy for 15 years and we have been BFF for 9 years. We didn't introduce kids until 6 months afterwards. And even then if they didn't get along with us and each other, it would have been a no go.

  • Id say give it a year before you get into a serious relationship, but I would probably date before a year give dating at least a little time. You dont want to rebound into someones arms and be sorry later.
