Coping with dating after divorce
Don’t be afraid to see what you didn’t see back then. I don’t care what other people think about me getting divorced.
One of the most common questions divorced parents ask me is: When should I introduce my new partner to my children?
When it comes to coping with divorce, everyone does it in his or her own way.
I’ve written blogs in the past about both bad and good behavior that men and women exhibit while going through a divorce. Part of coping with divorce is sometimes telling ourselves things that will soothe our pain and make us feel better about our situation, our decisions and our actions.
My best answer is to take your time dating after divorce and don’t introduce your new love to your kids if you are dating casually.
While it’s normal to seek solace, companionship, and a sexual relationship after a breakup, it’s crucial to take it slow so you can assess whether this relationship is casual or might be permanent.
Truth be told, younger children (under age 10) may feel confused, angry, or sad because they tend to be possessive of their parents.Meeting in an informal setting may help your kids feel more relaxed.Rather than planning a long visit, it’s best to have a brief, casual meeting with few expectations. Just don’t become a stalker or spend too much time on it. If he or she is the slightest bit nice to you, you might have moments when you remember how cute he or she was. The thought of having sex with another man/woman is repulsive. When people get divorced, they are vulnerable to getting into bad relationships.
