Topics: should a person date during a divorce?
En español | In the course of my work as a sex and relationship educator , I frequently run workshops about dating after age 50. My audiences are people who are motivated enough to show up at such an event — but scared silly about diving into a dating world they hadn't even thought about for decades! It's my job not only to teach them some new skills about dating , but to calm their fears. I reassure them by saying that taking that first step is the hardest part.
If you've been out of the dating pool for a long time, starting up again can be frightening. But you'll be pleased to know that things have gotten a lot easier since you were going to high school dances and college bars. A whole host of online dating sites have sprung up to help you meet great people from social networks that normally don't intersect with yours. Some of these sites are specifically geared to the 50-plus crowd, and they are attracting more and more single, divorced and widowed people than ever before.
But just becomes it's relatively easy to find a potential partner doesn't mean you should start dating before you think about your goals and desires. Meeting new prospects before you're emotionally prepared can feel infinitely worse than sitting home alone every Saturday night.
