Looking to get back into the dating scene post-divorce, but not sure it's the right time? According to YourTango.com relationship expert Amy Spencer, there is one sure-fire way to know if you're ready.

"The way to know if you're ready for a relationship, is to say, 'I'm ready for a relationship' and then see how it feels," she said. "Say it to your bedroom wall, say it to your mirror, say it to your dashboard, say it to your friends and family. Tell them, 'I'm ready for a relationship' and see how it feels in your gut. Do you believe it? If you don't believe it, it's probably not true."
