It may be appropriate to indulge in relationships after divorce if you have engaged in robust self-care following the divorce. Examples of robust self-care include counseling, exercise, prayer, healthy eating, meditation, and the like. Talk to counselors and trusted companions about your emotional health and readiness for post-divorce relationships. Take your time in committing to a long-term relationship. Give your soul time to grieve the losses of previous relationships before moving on to something new.

Some divorced people go straight into another relationship while others may take years to find someone again. Whatever you decide to do, you must realise that the issues that caused the breakdown of your marriage are still there. Harsh as it sounds, we all contribute to it in some way. Be prepared to do some self-work so that you don’t repeat the mistakes of the past. Spend time building yourself up again as your self-esteem will have taken a hard knock. Trusting someone else may be very difficult if your divorce was traumatic.
