How do you date when you have been in a toxic relationship for years?

I've been in a horrible relationship and I'm just now finally pulling myself away but I just don't know what to do

First of all Kim, I just want to say that you are so smart to realize that your relationship is toxic and to get out. It can be hard to figure out how to be in a healthy relationship after getting out of an unhealthy one at first but it is soooo worth it! I would start by moving slowly into the dating world. Take it slow, try to figure out what you want and don't be too quick to jump into anything although it may be tempting. There are lots of great fish in the sea, as they say, but it can take some time to find one. Look for similarities and mutual respect. Build friendship first and that will help you to have a healthy foundation. Good luck girl!!
