Don’ts of dating after a nasty divorce
Stepping out with your best foot forward and off your comfort zone knowing that you’re a brand new woman and you should feel confident and excited about opening a new chapter.
However, don’t get too excited and forget that the dating scene ain’t the same as you left it. For this reason, you need to take a breather and take things slow as you get your head back in the game.
This article aims at helping you identify some of the things that you might need to watch out for before taking a deep.
DON’T put too much pressure on yourself or your date with expectations of anything too serious. Remember, you are brand new back on the dating circuit and there’s no rush to partner up with a new mate. Relax, have fun meeting new people, and let things happen at their intended pace.
DON’T give in to feelings of longing to be in a relationship so much that you become tempted to settle for someone not right for you or become too attached before you’re really ready.
Take a deep breath, you were in a committed relationship for a while, and of course, it feels odd to be single now but, single is better any day of the week than being with the wrong person.
DON’T fail to recognize that the dating world has probably changed a lot since you were last single. Depending on how long you were married, it might have changed A LOT. So, be careful, gather wisdom from other singles, and educate yourself about current dating topics like angel shots, date rape drugs, and internet dating safety.
DON’T let the intense excitement of a successful date drive you to jump into bed and lose your head. Feeling attractive to a new romantic interest is exhilarating, as is the thrill of being with someone new.
Don’t get too attached or intimate if you are not ready for anything serious.
