Rules dating divorced women
"Know that it's okay to be exactly who you are," says Erik Newton, a former divorce lawyer and the founder of Together, a magazine and podcast for couples.
"Then take a breath and ask yourself: 'Who is this person right here in front of me, and how does he or she make me feel in this moment?
"If you're a gym junkie, get outside and learn something new: hike, walk, join a running meetup group," says House.
Trying something new will help you rediscover parts of yourself that might have gone missing — potentially help you meet a new love interest. Strike up a conversation with someone in the grocery line – whatever feels the most comfortable to you.
Your past experiences made you the dynamic and layered person you are today.
It allows someone to understand you and why you are how you are, and it contributes to three important dating conversations: where you were, where you are, and where are you going."Newton says it's extra important for divorced people to not compare their date to their former spouse.
That’s true whether you’re 16 or 56, but more than 40 percent don’t believe there is anyone “out there” to date.
