Dating for the first time after divorce
I think it’s important to take time to heal from divorce.
There are some advantages to being on your own – advantages like getting up to pee in the middle of the night and not falling in the toilet because no one has left the seat up.However, if you wait too long, some things happen that make dating more difficult.After some time, you start to enjoy the freedom that comes with being on your own. If you don’t feel like making your bed, there’s no one there to get mad at you for it.She and I both came to the same conclusion – because we waited too long, dating is harder and the thought of letting someone into our lives makes us a little twitchy.
Dating after divorce is tricky too, and I’ve found some things I think are good indicators of how whole a person is, and how ready they are for a healthy relationship.
Now that I’m divorced, I always get a good night’s sleep because no one wakes me with their snoring, no one steals the blanket, and no one puts their cold feet on me.
