Heal yourself Take this time to rebuild yourself. This loss is significant, and people sometimes jump into the next opportunity for stability, security, and feeling complete. Use this time to re-connect with yourself, your closest friends, and perhaps your spirituality. Many people need a year to start feeling "whole" again on their own, and that is a critical step to take before entering a new relationship.
Don't make the same mistake selecting the next partner! Was it beauty, or that your spouse was seemed so "in control", or perhaps it was that you always laughed at how you were so different. It is very common that the characteristics that attract us to our mates turn out to be the poison in our relationships. If so, take note! Way too often, people hit the dating seen looking for those same traits and end up where they started.
Learn why your marriage failed. Whether it was just a bad personality match, just growing apart, stress from the job or a deceased child, take the time to learn and improve upon this marriage in your next relationship.
Learn your present needs. If you have been married formore than a year, chances are you have changed. The changes may be having children, or it may be that you are more independent. Whatever the changes, make sure you understand what your present needs are.
