Coping with dating after divorce
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.
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?
Some self-talk is positive and will truly help in coping with divorce, but sometimes divorced women and men lie to themselves, which is never good.
On the other hand, adolescents may appear more accepting of your new partner than younger children, but they may still perceive that person as a threat to your relationship.If so, you owe it to yourself and your kids to build new relationships thoughtfully.I’ve witnessed many new relationships go sour when a partner is introduced to children too quickly. You wouldn’t be human if you didn’t care about finding love. Doing nice things for yourself and having some life enjoyment that doesn’t involve your kids makes you a better parent. I don’t want to meet anyone and I’m never getting married again. You’re saying this to protect yourself because you are afraid that you might never meet anyone. Not trying to be a jerk, but no, he or she probably won’t.
