Dating after divorce – expert tips for divorced singles

Dating after divorce comes with its own challenges. But there are also plenty of advantages too; you’re older, wiser, more sure of what you want and need from a relationship – in theory at least! But there’s often some work to do before you can be ready to date again. EliteSingles spoke with integrative psychiatrist Hilda Burke on the subject, and her advice is simple: “Letting go of a marriage invariably involves forgiveness” she says, “many people who are going through a divorce may blame themselves for deciding to get married or even for having been in the relationship in the first place. This is fruitless.”2

Burke also strongly advocates forgiving your ex-partner too, to “nullify the debt you feel they owe you.” Not dealing with these issues first only ensures you’ll carry excess emotional baggage into your next serious relationship. But, most importantly, divorced singles just need to keep their chins up; there’s not much in the world more stressful than a divorce, but getting through to the other side will make you stronger in the long run. To be dating after divorce and looking forward to the future again is a really good goal to keep in mind.
