Q: I am having problems getting over my ex, and I need to know what I can to do move on. I have tried to get back online to meet someone, but it seems I am not ready to. I live in a very small town & it’s hard to meet anyone.

A: Dear Getting Over Your Ex,

Getting over a relationship takes time.  Dating is only one step in the healing process.  Spend time with family and friends. Take up a new hobby or class, volunteer, begin an exercise program.  This would be a great time to do all the things you wanted to do when you were in the relationship that you didn’t have time to do.

If you really want to date well that can be a project all in its self.  There are lots of ways to meet new people including some of the activities I listed above.  The more things you do the more people you meet.  On line sites are just one way of meeting people.  Get out there and try to have some fun.  If you are happy and healed people will be drawn to you.  Enjoy your new life.
