When should you start dating after separation
Getting over the pain and hurt of a break up for many is a challenging and difficult task.
When life hands you limes, make margaritas. Take your time to focus on yourself and let everything that is related to your ex be unknown. Never really got the 'rebound' thing until it hit me!

You don't know until you try, do you? It is not the time to be exploring a new relationship when all of your focus and energies are on your own hurt feelings and pre-occupations.

If you're cool with it, then go for it! If you are ready to date go for it.
Registering is free, easy, and means you can join in the discussion, get discounts, win prizes and lots more. Your ex might be willing to accept that the marriage just wasn't working out -- the divorce might even be her idea -- but if you start dating before she's ready for it then she can make things very difficult for both of you.

But if you feel ready for it, then go for it. Nothing serious yet, but the opportunity of a more physical relationship is starting to present itself.
Glad I could be there to help. Coincidentally, my 2nd wife was also in her 4th month of separation.
Or test the waters? I was sad for a while, but more about our old relationship rather than who he had become over the last few years. I guess it depends on the people and the type of separation you are going through.
