Dating too soon after divorce kids
Kids from divorced families have already experienced a loss and can get attached very quickly, so it is important to think about how the introduction will affect them.Instead of determining when to introduce the kids based on the amount of time that has passed, think about it in terms of where you are in your relationship.
It is a very unfortunate thing that over the course of those early years that I made some of the mistakes that I made and I hate that. If I had a man or men in my life speaking to me, saying, “You need to really reconsider what you’re doing here,” I’m convinced I would not have made some of those choices.
I would often prey upon the single mothers who probably didn’t have a lot of confidence in themselves, because they were single moms and whatever and I would show them a good time and invariably within a month or two months into the relationship, they would want something else and I would be done, because I wasn’t ready.
In my experience, these people had amicable divorces, no children, grown children, minimum, no or only friendly contact with their ex-spouses.
If you are on the fence about whether or not it is too soon for you and/or your date to date after divorce, I suggest taking time to figure out what’s best for you and/or to take dating after divorce slowly so you can see how you feel while on/with a date.
