Throughout your marriage, you probably did things with your ex. Now that you are going through a divorce, you have to adjust to doing stuff alone. This might not seem like a significant deal until you have to do it. It may ignite old feelings that you didn't think were still there.

One thing that you need to remember is that you don't have to jump into a new relationship right away. Spending time with yourself and finding out what you need to do to improve yourself might be best. You can try to think about what's truly important to you so that you can focus on those and try to work toward goals you set.

When you are ready to get back into the dating scene, take your time. You might start doing new hobbies, so you can find people who have mutual interests.

Don't think that you are going to make the same mistakes you did before, and don't assume that everyone is the same as your ex. You have a fresh start that can enable you to find happiness.

If you have children, you need to think about them if you're going to enter into a new relationship. Your custody agreement might include information about when you can allow the children to meet the new person. Some have limitations on overnight visitors, so be sure to review the document before making any decisions that it might cover.

Remember that you and your ex must have mutual respect when introducing new significant others into the situation. You both have the right to move on, and the marriage is over, so it is bound to happen eventually.
