___Dating after divorce tends to be a deliberate action, entered into consciously and tentatively after years or even decades with the same person.
This can be an opportunity for you to clarify your needs and the needs of a relationship before you step out on that first date.
Valentine’s Day is horrible, Christmas is painful, birthdays can make even the strongest-hearted weak with pain.
And so, as hard as it is to have a relationship end (even when it’s for good reasons) having the opportunity to date to find a new partner who may be a much better match can be a wonderful thing.
Add to this, that most older women would say they know themselves better, have developed better relationship skills, and are more established in their careers.
That said, there are a lot of positive things about “mature” dating.
There are numerous reasons for divorce, but one of the most common is that partners have grown apart, with either one or both partners expressing changes in their values and/or direction in life.
