Some relationship experts counsel never dating while separated but not divorced.
What are you both hoping for from the separation? Coming out of a marriage is emotionally taxing. Spend some time with yourself first.
You need some time and space to fall in love with yourself again first and foremost. Factor in a little pamper time or even a weekend break here and there to give yourself time to heal.
Before you can move on to a new relationshipyou need to let go of the old one. Sometimes letting go takes longer than expected. Just let it run its natural course and do plenty to nurture yourself as you move forward.
