Develop a new routine
You and your ex probably used to have a routine, even if you didn’t enjoy it. So it’s time to develop your own: what do you do on Sundays now, instead of having lunch with him and his parents? How do you relax after work, since it won’t be through drinking wine and watching a cooking show with him? If you’re going to date, you should be inviting someone new into your individual life—not pieces of the broken life you had with your ex.
