Dating After a Divorce Advice

Dating after a divorce can be tricky. You have to deal with issues from past relationships, may have children involved, and possibly scheduling issues to deal with. A divorce doesn’t have to mean the end of your romantic life. It just takes a little more caution and stability before you can jump in to another relationship. If you are at the point where you think you are ready to get back out there after a divorce, here is some advice to keep in mind.

Go Slow

If you’re divorced you’ve already been through one relationship that didn’t work out, and even if you think you’ve healed you will still carry some baggage. It’s tempting for someone who’s been divorced to want to jump right in to a relationship. Once they form a connection it’s a feeling of comfort that they want to create again. However, this can lead to more issues later. It’s a much better idea to take things slowly and allow them to build naturally. If you take your time you end up building a much more solid foundation for the relationship.


If you have children involved this can be even trickier. You don’t want to expose your children to your dating life until you know you are serious about someone. A divorce is hard for kids too, and if you introduce them to a string of dates you just put them through unnecessary stress. You don’t want them to become emotionally involved in someone just to have it not work out.
