Divorce is one of the most traumatic events we go through, and when we reach the proverbial "light at the end of the tunnel," many of us feel that little spring in our step and start to think about dating again. So how can you start off on the right foot when you're just beginning to dip your toes back into the dating pool? Here are 15 essential tips to follow:. Do you understand what went wrong in your relationship? And, have you made as much peace as possible with your ex and the divorce? Can you identify what a new, good, happy relationship looks like to you?
If not, beware. Human beings are usually creatures of habit. We do what is comfortable instead of what is right. So, if you were married to a narcissist, without the knowledge of what a narcissist acts like in the beginning, you may find yourself on the same dysfunctional merry-go-round again. What makes you happy? Make a list of five to 10 things that bring you joy, and start to do them again.
The dating village should be filled with people who support you and will bring you up, instead of bringing you down.
Once you have a road map of a partner that makes you happy, give attraction and chemistry a chance to develop, even if it takes five or more dates to figure it out. Ask questions like: Are you compatible? Is this person willing to accept you, your complexities, maybe your children? Do you want similar things in life?
Are you on the same with regards to finances, parenting, living situations, marriage or more kids? You should be attracted to the person, as that is so important for the long term! You need to have excellent photos starting with a great smiling hehot. That includes great head-to-toe shots as well as of you and only you! No kids, grandkids, pets or friends. As women, we often feel like we just want to date one person at a time. This is a big mistake for many reasons. Dating should be like a horse race — you need many horses to make it a race! When I say "date," I'm referring to the old-school style of dating — not sleeping together or hooking up.
Have a good vetting process and keep the pipeline filled. ing groups is a great way to dip your toe back in the water and start making new friends — and maybe new dating connections! If you feel that someone texts you too much, suggest that you chat by phone instead! Sex can be great but, had too early, can cause the demise of a relationship as we are caught in a fog of oxytocin, estrogen, testosterone and dopamine. Sure, there are a few couples that had sex early on and it turned into a happy marriage, but those are pretty few and far between.
Waiting until you are exclusive is a great way to stay the happy course! Fast and furious usually flames out. Beware of going out five times in a week with someone you just met! One date per week within a few weeks turns into two dates per week, and then three dates per week. You do not want to date a fixer-upper. The only person you can change is yourself. Dating is a process. There will be ups and downs, weeks where you have many dates, and weeks where you have none.
Keep going no matter what. Patience, perseverance and positivity are crucial. IE 11 is not supported. For an optimal experience visit our site on another browser. Share this —. Follow today.
