I decided to dip my feet in the NB forum. Although I am still struggling with letting go of ex I know that it is the only way forward for me and it has been really inspiring to hear some of your stories over here and it gives me hope for a better future with someone else.
I have recently rejoined the OLD site that I met my ex on. I know I am not really ready for a new relationship yet, but I am trying to look at it as using this time for laying the groundwork to meet some decent people. It has been nice to chat to some people there and I am noticing a big difference in how conversations are starting off as opposed to how it did with my ex (very sexual in nature from the outset) as many of you will already know.
I am also trying to spot/look for red flags in what people are saying so hopefully I will learn to spot these more efficiently in the future.
I am interested to hear from those of you who have found new relationships since leaving your ex's wexh's. How did you meet?
I guess I am having trouble with the thought of meeting someone else. Do you run at the first sign of a red flag?
I read the thread 'Settle for the best' which was helpful. But how do you REALLY know what the best is? How do you know it's not another rotten potato?
