How long were you married?

 

How long before you started dating again?

 

Do you think there should be a waiting preiod?  Why/why not?

 

For me, I was married not quite a year.  Long story.  Went on my first date (no sex!) a couple weeks after he left.  I think I was just looking for atttention.  I knid of gave up on dating after that first date, it was a disaster! LOL   About 10 days after the divorce was final I got involved with a friend and it has been amazing.  He is my definition of perfect!

But it's a personal choice, everyone's experience is different and it takes some longer to heal than others.  I knew for a couple months that my marriage wasn't going to last.  It was just a matter of him making good on his threats to leave.  It still hurt like hell but I put my big girl panties on, dealt with it all, and moved on!

I was married for 10 years. I was not willing to date while I was still legally married. I have been divorced for almost 2 years and have not been on 1 date. It really sucks but I have not met anyone and I have been ready to date for some time

I have no idea.
Your marriage didn't last long. I would say it doesn't count. Hahahahaha. (I'm joking)

 I'd like for it not to count! Too bad there's a legal record of it.  LOL!

 Do you put yourself in situations to meet new people?  Such as going out with friends, dating sites...
