Dating after divorce when you have children

After a tumultuous divorce or separation, you may have trouble feeling comfortable in your own skin.

Pursuing activities that focus on your own happiness can help by providing some recalibration.

But two separate and happy co-parents will always be a healthier model for children than otherwise.

And when parents exemplify fulfillment defer from romantic relationships entirely, children will have strong role models for leading rewarding lives of their own.

In the long run, it may also help your children by giving them a role model for personal growth and fulfillment.

Whatever your motivation for “dating” yourself, make sure to have fun with it.

By Womans Dating after divorce is not quite the same as when you were young and carefree.

Now you're probably a lot wiser about men (thanks to your marriage), you may have children that restrict your free time, and the club-scene may not be quite as inviting as when you were younger.

Dating yourself is intended to be fun, so choosing your first step should be an easy task.

Do you find yourself opting to stay home when your children are with your co-parent?

Dust off that whittling knife (or knitting needles, or fly rod, or basketball) and dive back in.
