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.

So after investing in 2 of your products I have changed a fair bit. I know longer spend my weekends getting drunk at bars chasing women. Which always ended badly hahaha. I’m a lot more active now in life. My family and friends can’t get over how much I have changed. And the same with my exes who keep texting me lol I don’t focus on getting Laid all the time which is new for me. 1 thing I’m working at the moment and stuck on is I don’t have a problem with asking attractive girls on the street random questions it’s more the actually point of wanting to get there phone number that’s when I get cold feet and get a little intimated and wanna leave the conversation even if it’s going well and she’s responding great. I’m still reading your book and I’m really enjoying it.

Rob

Hey Marc, thanks for the eBook. It is amazing. You say it as it is.

Mario

Thank you for this gem of a book!

Vineet

I would like to tell you that they have absolutely changed my life. The girl whom I liked but she didn’t like me has started to talk to me. I mean you were an angel to me, I now have personal priorities and goals sorted out. God must have sent you to me. I don’t know how can I thank you for being such a helpful person a mentor and a counselor.

Clarence

Declare War on Yourself is my new bible. Each page is impactful and a catalyst for changing behavior. It does not contain any rah rah motivation talk, nor tear-jerking inspiration stories. Just plain battlefield success principles.

K.M.

Marc is not only brilliant but very knowledgeable. He utilizes his real life experiences to advise other what to do and what not to do. At the end of the day, whenever I find my relationship going South, I revert back to 72 ways. Everytime. Why? Because it's the most effective and makes the most sense. And I've sought advice from the entire Internet! I've even talked to Marc on the phone and he's the same guy as he is on this audiobook. 100 % Real! Trust me when I say this will be money well spent! Thanks Marc!

G.F.

Just wanted to say your advice helped big time. 2 other coaches I’ve had made me feel so pressured because I felt like I had to do all this extra stuff. But talking to you settled me down and I was able to hang out with this girl for nearly 3 hours. No expectations no kissing, just a lot of laughing. And she texted me right after saying how cool she thought I was. Just wanted to say how much I appreciated your advice because unlike other advice I’ve gotten, this made me feel like I could genuinely enjoy her company, which I did. And now she’s definitely more relaxed about hanging out with me again.

B

I just have to say that you really know your stuff. I’ve read psychology books for years and when it comes to applying it to women and dating, you just have a gift of simplifying everything you’re talking about so it’s easy to understand. What you teach goes so much deeper than what other dating coaches teach and I’m able to understand it and learn it so much better. I listen to your YouTube videos every day and I always learn something new. Honestly, every man needs to learn what you teach. Life would be so much easier for them.

Asaph

Out of all the dating coaches and PUA guys I follow, your insight and way of teaching resonates with me the most. I have a lot of “wow that makes sense” moments and I feel myself developing this unbeatable mindset and confidence with women. You’re helping connect the dots and on behalf of all the men, thank you for all you’ve done Marc. You’re an inspiration brotha, keep it up!

Craig

I just wanted to tell you thanks for your products. You’ve really helped me start to understand the issues my lack of emotional control has created with women, and in my life as a whole. I just finished 72 Ways and previously read 99 Bad Boy Traits. I’m coming off of a messy divorce a couple months ago, and also a break up with a different woman who I truly want to be with. Because of my lack of emotional control surrounding my divorce, I pushed her away. Thanks to the help of your books, I see the mistakes I made in my marriage and with the woman I want to be with. Right now I’m focused on myself, and your books really help me to stay on that path, rather than repeating the needy, overly emotional, negative patterns I was in. I’m giving her space with the acceptance that she might not come back around. If you have any further advice for me I’d appreciate it, and thanks so much again!

Jeffrey

Hey Marc, I want to thank you! You give a ton of great information, and techniques. My girlfriend has some stuff going on in her life that has forced us to put our relationship on hold. It would’ve been very easy for me to freak out and be a pussy about it, and call and text and piss and moan…but instead, I said…ok. I get it now! Thanks!

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!

Jesus

YOU ARE MY HERO!! This is my new beginning. All your advice has been helping me, and I’m about to drop my 2-year-sick-relationship, after understanding the importance of all you just said. Now I Know it’s a process but I’m really committed to this more than ever. I’ll be serious on myself, no more junk in my head, knowing how to handle drama, never ever bitching again, keeping my composure, controlling my feelings, and being a real man!! I don’t know how to express my gratitude

Anthony

Your eBooks and audiobooks are a wonderful resource in helping not only my dating aspect of life but my ENTIRE life in general. Thank you so much for your insight and expertise in all the information you make available.

Dejuan

Marc, thank you for being kind enough to release this dating BIBLE to the public. After 1 week of reading your book, I have found my inner game bro. I am realizing the power from being good at talking to women and I am ADDICTED. Because of you, I have unlocked my inner confidence, power, realization of self, and have figured out the fun of simply talking to the hottest girls without even knowing what fear is at the moment.

Enrique

Great book. Marc tells you what is right for you about this topic. Being a man, act accordingly the situation.

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.

Emily

I really enjoy and relate to your articles / videos and programs. I have purchased a few other dating coach advice booklets and I don’t particularly agree with what they are saying – most of the things they say to do is very cliche. However, most of the things you were saying to do was so true! The section about how to make a girl laugh was very funny and if a boy did that to me I would find him more attractive. I think you should produce more of those booklets – they are so useful! Your humor and the way you talk to girls seems really interesting and seems like it would work. I know a guy who does similar things, he wasn’t that good looking but he ended up being my boyfriend! So your advice is honestly spot on.

JZ

Dude, you rock. I appreciate your perspective, the information, tips, the advice... It's all been a helpful tool for me.

Matt

Hey Marc, I just read How Attracting Women Really Works. Must say, THIS WORKS. Exactly what I've been needing and looking for.
