Are you divorced and looking for love or at least thinking about it? Dating after divorce can be more difficult because now you have ” baggage.” And the men will too! But don’t let that stop you because many times, divorced men can be great catches and more willing to try again.
But it helps to be smart and that is the point of my latest video – to point our four red flags that you may want to watch for – just in case you run into any of these issues. My best piece of advice as an over 40 dating coach is to not date divorced men until they ARE divorced.
If those papers have not been signed, he is not divorced or single. To be sure a man is really available and relationship ready, steer clear of guys who haven’t had a finalized divorce for at least one year.
Now rules are made to be broken of course. And naturally there are exceptions to every rule. This is just a good rule of thumb to follow.
Many of my dating coaching clients tell tales of men who seemed so interested, yet disappear or waffle. Often the cause is – not yet divorced. From my perspective, this is just as true about women. Not that you aren’t going to date. That would be silly. But everyone needs time to heal. So got out, flirt and date by all means. Just don’t’ be surprised if it takes some time to really open your heart again, and find lasting love.
And don’t let that discourage your either! As my matchmaker friends will say – this is not a race, its a journey. You never know what will happen and how you will be blessed so date smart and enjoy the fun!
