Post divorce dating tips
It often feels daunting, there is uncertainty about how/where to start, and then add to it how damaged he may feel from being divorced, many men avoid the process all together.
Recently a client said to me “I’ve been out of the game for 25 years, all of my friends are married, I feel like a loser since my wife left me, and you expect me to ask someone out.” Well, not exactly, there are some steps that one can take to make the process easier: 1) Develop your divorce story.
I find that if a guy likes a girl, he dives into the water head first, not even knowing how deep it is.
And I understand that, because the guy probably hasn’t felt loved in so long and it feels really good to be liked and adored! I truly believe it takes at least a year before people’s true personalities come out and the courtesy phase dies down.
While it is always good to get support, only those who have been touched by divorce tend to truly get it.
