When can you start dating after separation
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Love like tomorrow will never come.I don't think there's any hard and fast rule on this.I've only scratched the surface as to what makes up the massive ball of confusion I know as myself. As I posted, a void is left in the person's life when the other leaves.Until I can get some insight as to how or why I get involved in certain relationships, I will definitely be avoiding anything more than "friends" with the opposite sex. Nature abhors a vacuum, & it's a natural tendancy to want to fill it immeidately. When my ex-w was in the process of moving out, I had called around looking for a divorce support group.I did see and talk to other people before I met her, though.I think dating is fine, but not allowing too much attachment within that early period should be the rule.
Be careful not to allow loneliness or other emotions to cause you to make a bad decision. One, we pretty much were over for about 8 months prior to separating, even though we had both tried counseling and doing different approaches, all to no avail.
So were going to do something together for a few days. I think it's really great that you are still friends especially since you have children. Sounds like you're handling things in a very mature and reasonable manner. Just be good to yourself, see your kids, be civil to your wife and you'll be fine. I met my now husband a couple of weeks after I separated, although we were only friends for a while. I'm not aware of any "rule," it's what feels right for the person. I actually wouldn't consider dating or attempting another relationship. I think it would be wiser to be alone have some personal growth happen than to jump back into dating and potential relationships and start it all again. I can't speak for anyone else, as everyone is different.
