It is also important however, to understand that dating after a divorce is unique and multifaceted.
In many cases, divorced women who are starting to date experience two processes simultaneously – on the one hand, they may still be recovering from an ended marriage (this can a long time, and is natural,) while on the other hand, they are ready to move forward, date and embrace their new singleness.
I share this now with a light heart, because five years after my separation, I have “acclimatized” and have since happily dated middle-aged men, many of whom are divorced and have children.
In other words, my dating pool didn’t change, I did.
The majority of my divorced clients, most of whom were married for 15-25 years, quickly discover that the modern dating scene is very different from what they once remember.
This includes taking care of yourself inside and out so you feel your most attractive and confident.Dating post divorce, most women who are looking for their next life partner are looking for much more than attraction.Instead of dating with a checklist of superficial attributes, I encourage women to search for a partner with complimentary values, and to be willing to let attraction develop.I often coach my clients to come up with a list of “essential” qualities; qualities that are directly correlated with their happiness in the long-term.It’s much easier to be open to a variety of high-quality men if you are more focused on character and how they treat you, rather than their age, height or bank accounts.
