Your ex may or may not be a part of your life in the future, but he or she should not be a big part of who you in the future. It is also important to reflect on what mistakes you made in your marriage (many times the primary mistake is choice of partner, but this requires you to evaluate yourself also as you were the one who made the choice) and make necessary changes in your attitude, behavior and perceptions before moving back into dating.There are countless divorce support groups out there; if you can find one tailored specifically to Christians then that's great but any divorce support group should definitely be considered (rather than trying to be your own support or seeking support from those too close to the situation).Nearly all churches have a “doors open” policy when it comes to admitting and accepting new members into their congregations so church is one of the easiest and most natural ways to meet people anyway (no pick-up line necessary).Visiting new churches can have a positive effect on your overall faith as well as you will take in new viewpoints and perhaps think of things that you hadn't thought of before.Such tolerance of divorce does not negate the fact that God “hates divorce” (Malachi ).Jesus was once asked about the grounds for divorce (Matthew 19:3-9).
You shouldn't think of it this way though; you are not the only Christian divorce out there and you are not off limits to good Christian partners just because you've been through a marriage that didn't work out.
And third, the prospective marriage partner must also be a believer: “but he must belong to the Lord” (1 Corinthians NIV).

Christian dating, in a massively sexualized and (arguably) immoral modern society, can be quite a challenge in and of itself.
Trying to do it a second time around, after your first marriage has fizzled out, can seem pretty much hopeless.
