Crank some musicMar 25, 2021 at 9:41pmopen a bottle of champagne or whatever you feel like drinking, make a big mess having a solo dance party and celebrate doing whatever the heck u feel like doing without needing anyone else You're overthinking itMar 25, 2021 at 11:39pmYou've spent so much time living as a couple that you lost yourself in the relationship and forgot that you're an individual.Take time to learn... or relearn.... about you.What do YOU like? What do YOU want to do? How do YOU want to spend your time?Ignore what others think, live your life for YOU for a change.Test out things like a lazy hot bath with music YOU like. Order a pizza with just YOUR favorite toppings. Explore things that you wouldn't have done so because your ex wasn't into it or wouldn't like it. No limits now. Enjoy the freedom. It's the end of denial of the self.You have you now. Discover or rediscover what you like and give it to you.And enjoy it guiltless. You earned it.

We all need to socialize with others in some way. Keep in contact with any family or friends, even by phone, zoom etc. I kept busy finding topics on line that I found interesting and reading comments, even a support group with others newly single. enjoyed soloMar 26, 2021 at 6:56pmI exited a long tern relationship a couple of years ago, was terrified to be single, to date, have sex. I hadn't been single since before Facebook and Tinder et al, but I fucking loved it! Was so nice to do whatI wanted, when I wanted, without having to justify it, or ask permission. I accidentally went camping, the freedom was great.

You finally have the freedom to decide for yourself! LOAD MORE Join the Discussion Your name Comment * your name What's your name?
