Divorced Dating: Getting Back Into the Scene

Aug 17, 2007
Most people are hesitant to get back into a relationship after their divorce has been finalized. After all, many divorces result in hurt feelings and you may need time to overcome those types of emotions. Divorced dating can be a tricky situation to get into. There is no need to date before you are ready. You could have been in a really bad relationship. You could have been married for decades and have no idea what to even expect out of the dating scene anymore. A divorce is usually an irreparable conflict of personalities, not to be confused with someone's desire to be single. Most people don't want to be single for the rest of their lives. They seek the companionship of another.

Divorced dating is something you must be absolutely sure you are ready for before you begin. Before you start looking for a date, you must first decide what you want. Are you looking to get into another serious relationship, or do you just want a casual connection? On a first date, it is necessary to let the person you are out with know your intentions. This will prevent mixed signals or giving them the wrong idea altogether. Honesty is always the best policy. There are many seeking only the dating experience and also many who want security in a serious relationship; possibly leading to a steady date or even marriage.

Let the person you are out with know that you are divorced. Divorced dating can be a strange, or even intimidating situation to be in. If you have children, you should prepare them before you enter back into the dating world. It may be easier for them to see mom/dad with someone else if they know what to expect. Children naturally want "mom and dad" to get back together. One needs to consider these feelings in the children and explain that it is probably not going to happen.

Divorced dating does not mean you have to date another divorcee, although it can be an interesting thing to have in common. You have to be prepared for bad dates, because they are almost inevitable. The experience of being married will be an advantage that allows you to know exactly what you want or don't want in a new partner. There is someone out there for everyone; it just may take a while to find the right person. Don't let it be discouraging; take it all with a grain of salt. Move slowly until you feel more and more confidence building up inside of you.
