A reader asks what to do with the time now that they are no longer a couple

QUESTION: I am single after many years of living with a partner. Do you have any ideas on what I could do with my alone time? Most people tell me that I should volunteer or go on a trip. Are there rules of etiquette that dictate my actions?

CALIE’S RESPONSE: Volunteering is always a great option, finding a hobby like golf or tennis or something is good too! A trip sounds amazing! Hope you can find something that suits you perfectly.

LILLIE-BETH’S RESPONSE: It will probably take you some time to find your rhythm and find what makes sense to you, so give yourself grace in the process (which is the hardest part). Try all of the above and see if they give you the satisfaction, interaction, community, etc., that you are looking for. If they do, do more.
