A girlfriend and I were reminiscing the other day about our wild single days in Minneapolis right after my divorce.

We agreed that there are some things that a newly single girl can't live without. We came up with this list — feel free to add your thoughts in the comments!

Friends! Good, solid friends who will listen, cry, laugh, eat chocolate and shop with you.

Storage unit. If you don't want to throw every bit of your past away, get it out of the house. Deal with it when you're ready.

A journal. You'll be surprised at what emotions will find their way to the page, and as the months go by, you'll be able to read about your healing and growth.

A girl toyEnough said.

Music. Discover new artists that fit your mood, and where every song doesn't remind you of your ex.

A hobby. Learn something new! I learned how to cook and picked up the guitar after my divorce.

Clothes & Shoes. You can only hide away for so long before your friends take you out on the town. Be confident in your new single status and explore your personal style.

A vacation. Start building new memories through travel.

Flowers. Treat yourself to small things that will brighten your home and your day.

A support network. Somewhere — like First Wives World — where you can read, comment or vent freely on your divorce experience with others who have been where you are right now.

    There's nothing wrong with a: There's nothing wrong with a girl toy!! If there is a Lover's Lane by you go in and look till your heart's content. They know their stuff too and will help you pick the right toy. Why be embarassed? It's not like you're going to ever see them again ... unless of course you become a regular :)

    m-word: i love this list! I've had to start learning a lot of new things since i moved out, especially cooking. that was one thing he actually did regularly. And without my dog around, i have to find new motivation within myself to be active, which is hard.
    I am also enjoying my new found love (and surprising talent) for interior decorating, WITHOUT having to worry about offending his masculinity with my sense of style.

    girl toy - i have never masturbated (yep, the m-word), but it's only been about a month since the last time we were together and i'm dyin' here! I've been considering looking at buying a "girl toy." I have to admit i'm intimidated. (not to mention embarrassed, and wondering about the morality of it all.)
