I should mention I have two small children and I don’t want to rush anything.
I just want to ride this wave of optimism because I’ve never felt so confident and lovable before. I don’t have a strong attachment to any man in particular right now.
Getting backing to dating after separation or divorce can seem daunting for anyone.
If you are a single parent then your children are also going to play a part in the decisions that you make.
Sounds to me like your head is on straight and, while you’re cautious about exposing your children to other men, you don’t want to have to wait until they’re teenagers.
It is natural to be curious about what is out there and to desperately crave love and passion after a bad marriage. My advice is to go to counseling, take a few months to sort out the legal stuff and then, once the legal stuff is signed and dealt with, date.
I won’t date anyone unless the paperwork is signed (divorce final is preferred) and they have been separated for at least a year.
If you want sex, find a friend with benefits that is in a similar place as you and is also not in the right place for a committed relationship.
I feel like I’ve already been through those famous five stages of grief–denial with all the years I stayed in something unhealthy, bargaining was the last few years when I urged him to get counseling and tried to forgive him. I actually feel a huge wave of relief and happiness and hope for a future of actual love and that I might someday find a guy who can be kind and compassionate the way I am and the way I deserve.
My question is this: How long is it necessary to wait before getting back into the dating scene?
