Single mother dating after divorce
Part of moving on to a new life is healing from the pain left from your old one.
Therapists and counselors can also offer healthy ways of coping with all the changes in your life.
“When you drop off the kids at school, there might be a single person there, but you don't know them.” Some single parents don't date because they're worried about the effect it may have on their children.
You don't let your children make other decisions for you, so don't let them keep you from dating if that’s something you want to do. “Do a very slow introduction of a new partner,” Sills says.
“You can't heal unless you're on your own,” Tauber says.
“You need to find single friends to have a social life with.” Not only have you changed since you were last single, but so have your social life, circle of friends, and routines.
