7 Reasons Not to Wait too Long to Start Dating After Divorce

I’ve been divorced for five years and I only recently started dating again. Now that I have, I’ve come to the realization that I waited too long. 
I think it’s important to take time to heal from divorce. People need time to adjust to the major changes that divorce brings: different living situations, moving, financial struggles, and having to share time with your kids. Divorce is a death of sorts. It’s the death of your hopes, dreams, and beliefs that you will spend the rest of your life with your spouse. It takes time to go through the grieving process. It’s wise to wait a year or so, so that you can evaluate your life, take inventory of who you are, change the things about you that you don’t like, and discover what exactly you’re looking for in a partner. 
However, if you wait too long, some things happen that make dating more difficult.

Well I can honestly say, that if something unfortunate happened to my husband .... I mean, divorce of course ..... I would never ever marry again .... & I'm not even sure I'd want to date again. I feel like my kids ARE my family (even though Im married, I know ... sad) & I'd be fine being on my own.
