Most Helpful Girl
I've been through a similar situation. It's been a little over a year for me and I am still kinda struggling. I thought I was fine after about 3 months but anytime I got close I would freeze up cuz I know I've built a wall. Anyways, I think it just takes time and getting back on the horse and falling off until you get back into a flow again. I know I have seen improvement for myself but have made lots of mistakes during this past year. Just go out, meet new people, if you find someone you find interesting then just make a point to try get to know them (as a friend). One of the mistakes I made was trying too hard to get myself back into relationship mode... people can tell... which weirds them out. It can be hard not to do, but like I've been told a thousand times and I am sure you've been told... focus on your goals in life (don't just pretend) and just be a nice person to everyone you meet. Go do what YOU want to do and be nice to people and eventually you will just click with someone. It's not bad that you're not dating, even though I know it feels like it (at least for me it does) but you need to just go do you and be nice to everyone you meet. They'll come along.
