When to start dating again after divorce

05 Jan

I’ve been divorced for five years and I only recently started dating again.

Now that I have, I’ve come to the realization that I waited too long.

I actually think it takes people a minimum of one year and probably more like two years before they really even think about getting into a relationship. I don’t think that there’s one true answer for anything, I think that’s more of a guideline.But research shows that online dating is now the number-one way to meet people for the over 50s, and as the number of users aged over 45 overtake those under 25, experts say it’s time we started embracing technology when it comes to our love lives.“Dating in midlife and beyond can be daunting,” says relationship psychologist Honey Langcaster-James.Self-confidence and self-assurance are important factors in dating and meeting new people.Keep in mind that a recently divorced single must not be rushed to go out dating because no set amount of time assures that someone feels ready to move on.
