Some of you know that I just experienced the termination of a very long term relationship. A hard fall and I still hurt (yes, still angry, too).
I'm not currently looking but I don't see myself living the rest of my life alone and can see myself with another person at some point. So my question is this: when do I know I'm ready to get back into the dating game and start a relationship? When will I know that if a person says "no" to a cup of coffee, a glass of wine, or a date that I won't hurt again then crawl into a shell never to re-emerge?
