I find that if a guy likes a girl, he dives into the water head first, not even knowing how deep it is.
And I understand that, because the guy probably hasn’t felt loved in so long and it feels really good to be liked and adored! I truly believe it takes at least a year before people’s true personalities come out and the courtesy phase dies down.
Dating After Divorce by Jason Price, LFMT In my therapy practice I work with a lot of divorcing men who are trying to adjust to life after their divorce.
One of the common themes that I encounter is that men want the companionship of someone else, but are scared of the process of dating.
When you do start to date, you’ll feel more comfortable about your situation and be able to share with your date a story that is palpable. Too many men rely on their married friends for advice.
Once you set up a profile (ask friends for help), what you are likely to witness is many people being interested in you, not being turned off by the fact that you are divorced, and that it feels really good to be communicating in the dating world. Many men long for some of the comforts that were afforded in their marriage. home cooked meals, laundry etc.) and that causes them to rush to find their next partner.
Also, since many have lacked a connection with their spouse for some time, when they meet someone new they mistake the honeymoon phase for true love.
It is important to be cautious, date a few different people at first, and not rush into a long term relationships.
While dating may seem daunting, it can be a very helpful part of the healing process.
