Of course it is, unless you plan on staying single for the rest of your life. In that case, the answer is still the same, yes it is fine to date but you don't need to have a relationship with anyone if you don't want to. If you do want to, you should. It helps you get your feet wet and makes you open to meeting new people and possibly finding love again.

I would not recommend for anyone to date immediately after a divorce. Your feelings will be so complicated for a while. I think the best thing for a person to do is to try to spend some time alone and not try to jump into another relationship right away. In most instances you will not be ready to date anyone and it wouldn’t be fair to the other person.

Generally speaking it would depend on the type of dating and type of person these dates are with. If it is to help move one's self out of their comfort zone and to become more social, sure why not. It's a positive exercise in socializing. Friendships can be made and lessons learned. Now if it's immediately after a divorce, time isn't given to the individual to heal and regroup and the following dates that person goes on can be meaningless. No real positive or self growth coming from these dates.

Dating after divorce is appropriate so long as you have engaged in self-care prior to the dating. A divorce, even after a very tumultuous marriage, creates grief in one’s life. It is very important to process the grief if you are serious about engaging in meaningful relationships after the divorce. Bear in mind, the goal of dating should be to enjoy the company of another without the expectation of long-term commitment or marriage. When in doubt, take your time in moving back in to the dating world.

Why not? The only time that it isn't correct is if you're doing it out of spite from your divorce and want to make your spouse upset. Dating after a divorce can take your mind off the troubles you have just went through, and can perhaps bring hope to yourself that there is love in this world after all. Just try not to make the same mistakes as you did before!

It happens that after divorce you start visting diffrerent dating sites and even date people to fill the void. But just to make yourself happy for short term is not the key to long term happiness. It is always said after divorce you should live for yourself and avoid dating people to just numb your pain. Though meeting new people and socializing gives you chance to live life on your own terms, but you need to keep control on your emotions as well. The most common reasons for divorce are infidelity, lack of trust and several others. Make sure that you do not let the bygones of past affect your present life.
