Determine that you're ready
Figure out if you're ready to date again. If you can picture yourself with somebody other than your ex, you might be ready to start.
Determine if you can handle rejection
Picture yourself getting rejected, and ask yourself if you can handle it. Once you know you can, there's no reason to hold back.
Join as many different clubs, groups, and organizations as you can. This will get you out there meeting people without actually going on a date.
Define your needs
Define what you want and need -- to yourself and whomever you begin seeing. It's important to be honest with people so you can avoid wasting time.
Be persistent. Dating invariably involves failures and awkward situations. Learn to laugh at them and chalk them up to experience.
Allow yourself to be happy
Allow yourself to have fun and be happy. Treat dating as an experience rather than an inconvenience, and you will find somebody.
