Dating after divorce with young kids
I find that if a guy likes a girl, he dives into the water head first, not even knowing how deep it is.And I understand that, because the guy probably hasn’t felt loved in so long and it feels really good to be liked and adored! I truly believe it takes at least a year before people’s true personalities come out and the courtesy phase dies down.Even if it was a horrible process and divorce wasn’t the desired outcome, the positive look can be something like “I put my all into the marriage, and even though this relationship didn’t work out, I know that I can be a good partner to someone”, or “we had many good years together, but as time went on we grew apart”.
Get your relationship off to a good start by considering these common scenarios. Is it OK to meet him now or should I wait until I have a better feel for the potential of this relationship before making introductions? Most experts agree that you should wait until your relationship shows signs of becoming serious before making introductions.
It is important to be cautious, date a few different people at first, and not rush into a long term relationships.
While dating may seem daunting, it can be a very helpful part of the healing process.
Having people to share time with and be interested in you can help you get back to being the person that you really want to be. I of course have to put my two cents in and offer the woman’s perspective on this post.
Regarding #1, “Develop your divorce story,” I think it is very very important. AND, if you keep telling people all the details, YOU won’t heal, either.
Children (especially young children) quickly can become attached to someone new and, consequently, may be confused or hurt if the relationship ends.
