Dating someone while going through divorce
I was not of that mind, though, when my husband and I split up three years ago.
So, two years later, I all but ignored the flirtatious man who had recently moved into my mansion block.These women are all dating after 40…some in their 60s and 70s. They had one date three weeks prior, and since it’s only been texting. Texting has certainly complicated dating and relationships.“Sue” connected with a man on Tinder, they had a couple emails, and then he started texting. I’m going to give you some straight scoop about what texting really means and doesn’t mean.Over the past few years it seems that almost every dating dilemma I hear from my coaching clients and girlfriends has something to do with the texting. He told her how busy he was and she felt flattered that he was keeping in touch.Texting and dating definitely isn’t just for 20 year olds anymore. “Melissa” stayed up until 3 AM texting with her dude. She wants to know how to stop obsessing over him being The One.It was the morning after the night I'd been fretting about for the previous two-and-a half weeks, and the prospect of which had terrified me for the past three years.I had just spent the night with Stephen - the first man I'd been intimate with since the break-up of my 15-year marriage.It finally happened on a furious main road at 1.30 am while we were waiting for a cab to take us back to North London.Not the most intimate of locations for my first post-marriage kiss, but no matter.I would say to any divorced, middle-aged woman terrified of contemplating sex with a man other than her husband, to put those fears to one side and embrace an exciting new chapter in her life.After all, I'm happy proof that when it comes to sex, life can indeed begin in your post-divorce 40s.
