The person who texts you just to say hello, who tells you that you’re beautiful more times in a week than your ex ever did and the one that makes you realize exactly why it didn’t work out with anyone else (ex-husband included).
You swipe, click and scroll your way through hundreds of potential matches until you find one that checks off all of your boxes (tall, good job, funny, family-oriented, etc.).
You’re always going to be divorced, and that doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing.
Instead of glossing over that fact on your first date, own it.
“Pretty much everyone who wants to date after divorce does it.” The reasons for swiping on your phone instead of mingling at a bar is simple: most people just don’t have the time to date traditionally anymore, especially if you have a family and need to juggle co-parenting duties with your ex.
The most daunting aspect of online dating isn’t the fact that you’re meeting online, it’s the sheer number of apps out there for just about any kind of dating or any kind of person.
Those moments aside, dating is one of the best ways (in my opinion) for you to get over the pain and the hurt of a divorce.
