The best part about being divorced after a short marriage is being single again at 35. When my marriage ended after just two years, the idea of navigating the dating world all over again seemed daunting, unappealing, and pointless.Plus, the last time I'd been seriously single, it was 2006; texting was barely a given, much less Tinder.You don’t want to go from one relationship and jump into another relationship. I would tell anyone looking to start dating after divorce not to be in a hurry. I think it was year four when my ex came back and I started getting into the dating scene, because all of the sudden I had weekends open, and I was interested.I went on occasional dates, and I took advantage of that time and did the online dating routine.It's possible that they'll become upset, but if that's the case, then having the conversation with them is even more important than it would have been if they'd been 100% supportive.
Keep in mind, too, that you don't have to be specific.
It doesn’t mean they’d talk negatively but they would talk about that time when this happened or whatever, and it was like they hadn’t healed yet.
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.
Dating after divorce is complicated, especially for parents whose children still live at home.
And since every situation is different, there's no 'one size fits all' timeline to follow.
