You might think that by having one or two divorces under your belt means that love simply isn’t in the cards for you.
Dating after divorce can be stressful and intimidating or it can be exhilarating and adventurous. Let yourself grieve the ending of your marriage (some grieving is necessary no matter what the circumstances); you will know when you are ready to move on and you will have a much better idea of what you want so that you can approach your next relationship from a healthy and emotionally open place.
I am going to share with you my thoughts on getting over divorce and dating after divorce. I was so busy coping with the divorce, working at my job and looking after my children that I was not the least bit interested, nor did I have the time, to date.
While it may be easier to simply say “I love me” than to actually believe it, try doing some things that will make you feel good about yourself again. Join a class that you’ve been meaning to for a while. Do whatever it takes to make you feel good about yourself and recognize what a great catch you are.
No matter how old you are or how many first dates you go on, they never get easier.
Learning to separate your past relationships from your future relationships will allow you to see each potential partner for who he/she is. If you can answer these questions, you can begin the dating process with a clear vision that will aid you when deciding who to date.
