Take some time to reflect on what you want and need in a relationship. Think about the qualities that are important to you and consider what kind of relationship would make you happiest.
Take some time to get to know yourself better. Spend time alone or with friends doing things that make you feel happy and fulfilled. This will help you feel more confident when you start looking for a relationship.
Prepare yourself emotionally. Consider how you will handle difficult conversations, arguments, and tough subjects. Also, consider how you can maintain your boundaries while still being open to a relationship.
Make sure you are in a place in your life where you can put in the effort and time a relationship requires. If you are too busy or stressed, it might be better to wait until you have more free time and emotional energy to devote to a relationship.
