When I first came around it was suggested we take at least a full year to live on our own with no new relationships/dating, etc. It was hard- but taught me alot!
My husband now- was in the meeting circles I attended - he too was 'taking a
year'- so we became friends and did 'friend things', mostly in with another group
of people-went on commitments, had coffee, etc. By the time we were ready to date again, we enjoyed each others company so much and trusted each other because we knew one another pretty well by that time- it was easy to go on
and grow closer! Nia
