Though divorce is a difficult process, it can also be immensely freeing.For some, the logical next step will be to start dating again.For others, the very idea may seem terrifying or impossible.

Just because it happened one way for a friend doesn’t mean it will for you.A younger child doesn’t need to know that you are dating until you are more serious about it while a teenager should be given more details because they are sure to notice that something is going on.No matter your children’s age, it is best not to bring your new partner around until you are very sure of them.Pay attention to your own emotions, and ask yourself why you want to start dating again.

If you are trying to fill the hole left by your spouse, dating right now won’t be a healthy option.As you move forward, listen to their feelings, and express your own.
