Evaluate yourself first. Think about what are your needs. Do you need to be in a relationship? Are you in a hurry for a new person in your life? Are you happy right now? Are you emotionally and physically ready to carry on with a new person? These are some questions to think about as you look critically at your dating situation before you actually jump back into the dating pool. 3 years is a long time but when the time is right, the right person will come along.
