northpickle Posted November 6, 2011 Share Posted November 6, 2011 Hi all, I just would like some advice and / or for people to share their experiences. I'm just over 2 months after the break-up, and am beginning to accept things are over and have been trying to move on. I've just registered with an online dating website but haven't filled in my profile properly yet. The reason I'm posting is that I'm unsure whether I'm doing the right thing because: a) I'm nowhere near being over the ex b) I've never used a dating website before and don't know what to expect and c) I'm not interested in a relationship right now BUT I would like to expand my social circles, the ex and I have a lot of mutual friends and I want to make new friends, do new and different things with different people. Not that I will leave my old friends behind, but things are still too raw and I know to move on I need to start having things to look forward to without the chance of the ex being there. So, in brief, is registering with a dating website a good or bad thing? Would it work to meet new people as long as I'm honest with people that I am just looking for friendship right now? Or will I just get a lot of guys coming on too strong, either wanting sex or a serious relationship when I just want to slowly start expanding my social life, although hopefully down the road one day I will find love again? Any help appreciated. Thanks Link to comment
