Divorces are tough on many aspects of your life, from your finances through to your social life, but they’re often most damaging to your love life. After all, it’s hard to image spending time with someone else after your divorce, so you may choose to retreat into yourself and refrain from spending time with others, but this would be a mistake. Getting back into dating is vital to improving your mental well being, so you should consider taking the time to find a way to reintroduce yourself to the dating space.

Here are some top tips on how you can make dating work for you after a divorce.

Remember That It’s Not Just You

Whilst divorce rates in the UK have been slowly decreasing over recent years, they remain strong, and there’s no way of recording how many people suffer the breakup of a long-term relationship but weren’t married. As such, it’s important that you remember that you’re not alone; there are loads of people out there recovering from the disintegration of an important relationship. Try your best to remember what you enjoyed about dating and consider your divorce as a chance to enter into an exciting new adventure.

Try Practicing On An Escort

If you don’t feel ready for a new relationship, then try testing out your skills on an escort first. They will have the experience to understand the dating market and will be able to gently guide you through the evening so that you feel confident and ready to face the dating world again. Some escort companies, like Adultseek, even provide a dedicated girlfriend experience so that you can practice being in a relationship without the commitment that this usually entails.

Use Online Dating To Meet New People

There are loads of dating sites out there, and they each offer a unique way to meet people without having to spend lots of time and money going out and hanging around in specific bars. Find the site that’s best for you and then make an honest profile that reflects you and what you’re looking for from your new relationship. Be honest about your divorce and what you’re expecting from any connection you make so that you don’t end up disappointed. Make sure that your picture is up to date to avoid making them feel cheated when you arrive and don’t look anything like your profile photo. Honesty and openness will ensure that you find the right people and don’t waste your time going on dates that lead nowhere.

Take The Time To Find The Right Person

It’s important that you find the right person to go on your first date after your divorce, so take the time to get to know a few people before you take the plunge. Find someone you have a real connection with and suggest a meeting in a suitable place where you’ll both feel comfortable. Try not to put too much pressure on the first date and keep things casual so that you don’t scare them off and instead try to make a real connection.

Be Friends First

When you initially meet someone you like, be their friend first to see how things go. If you both feel like you want to take the relationship further then this can be easily achieved, but if it doesn’t work out then you haven’t wasted your time and have still made a new friend. Befriending them first also takes the pressure off both of you and will make you feel less concerned about how the relationship is progressing. After a big trauma like a divorce it can be easy to want to jump straight back in and make a commitment again, but this might not be the best option for either of you, so take the time to get to know them and work out what you’re both looking for in the early stages.

Don’t Give Up

Getting back into dating after your divorce is always going to be tough, but remember that you won’t immediately succeed, and it might take several tries to find the person who’s right for you. The important thing is that you keep trying and put yourself out there. Being in a relationship can give you a range of surprising health benefits, and so it’s important that you keep going out and trying to find someone to share the rest of your life with.

It’s never going to be easy to get back into dating after a divorce, but by following these tips you should be able to make the transition easier for yourself. Remember to take everything at your own pace and only do as much as you feel able to. You might not meet the love of your life on your first date, but each experience provides you with the chance to learn more about yourself and your preferences now that you’re single again.

Hi, I'm Marc Summers

marc summers of major league dating

I used to suck big time with women, dating, and relationships even though I was nicer than other guys, tried my hardest, and followed all of the dating advice. The women I landed, unsurprisingly, weren’t very picky or hard to get and I regularly got cheated on and dumped. Despite being the nice, generous, thoughtful, and loving guy I thought women wanted, once they got to know me, the attraction disappeared.

The day my girlfriend left me for her ex 30 minutes after hearing he got out jail was the day I decided to get serious, figure out EXACTLY what I was doing wrong, and make some changes.

The next 5 years of my life were spent focusing only on studying psychology, human behavior, effective communication, and leadership, and meeting and dating one woman after another to test out and fine tune what I was learning.

You know what became obvious very quickly?

Your dating and relationship problems have nothing to do with the women and have everything to do with your mindset, behavior, habits, and decisions.

Once you figure out what’s wrong and fix the problems in each one of these areas, your dating life will become easier, less stressful, and more rewarding. 

To share the powerful information I learned and make you better with women, dating, and relationships, I’ve written multiple best-selling books and have helped over 1-million men get better results. No matter how screwed up and hopeless your situation seems right now, I can help you improve it.

I love this book it has a lot of gems to help you become the man you need to be. Most men are feminized today by our society and we need to get back to our alpha state. We must protect our confidence and our Balls. Be true to yourself and everything else is secondary.

Micah

Thank you so much! It is a great read. I finally believe it is something I can use to finally stop doing what I know I should not be doing and help me reach the goals that I have always wanted to achieve. There is nothing like this out there and I am glad that I found you. God bless!

Anonymous

Eye opening! My husband and I are doing some soul searching making drastic changes in our lives.

Isaac

Your stuff is the best I have heard so far! It gives me hope because I know I CAN become better with women. I am attractive, physically fit, but was having all the bad luck with women because I was just thinking and doing things wrong. It all makes better sense now. Thanks!

Ben

I’m in Australia and just purchased your eBook. WOW! This is what I need. I just read 80 pages and stopped to write you this to say thank you. I am now separated from a 16 year relationship with 2 boys and now back on the dating scene. I’ve already made some big errors with the line of thinking “be nice and it will all work out”, like I’m trying to “Convince” them that I am good enough. It’s like reading my own personal struggle. I see it now as a learning experience as I have this stuff buried deep within, just have to get it to the surface. I can’t thank you enough.

Kevin

It all just makes sense. This will uplift you and help give you the patience and confidence that you’re gonna need to get your girlfriend back. I am facing the struggle right now and this book is what’s helping me to not make all the mistakes that I would have had I not listened to it. I’m eager to follow his methods with the hope of one day redeveloping a relationship with a woman I love dearly. And if that doesn’t happen, then I’ve at least learned what it takes to get it right next time. 5 solid stars from me.

Brendan

Life Changing. The principles here go beyond porn and masturbation. Principles such as get more sleep, the reptilian brain, journaling, etc. Such an amazing list. I highly recommend this to anyone.

I gotta tell u that this book has been the best $30 ever spent, it really helps me out with my inner-game.

Good info. This book is pretty easy to listen to. Each of the 99 points he makes are short and clear. A lot of the info used to make this book is based on truths and inner attitudes from some of the top pick up artists around. I’ve read and listened to a lot of different pick up/ alpha male books. This one makes packs a lot of info into some short easy to reference points. I have recommended this book to a few friends.

Loved it, straight to the point and no bullshit. I noted myself to call each that I switch number with.
