5 Tips for Dating After a Divorce in Manhattan


Dating after a divorce in ManhattanIf you recently got divorced, on one hand, you might be relieved and excited to start a new chapter of your life but on the other hand, you might also be emotionally and financially drained from the divorce.  When you do feel ready to get back into the dating scene it's important to know how to date after a divorce in Manhattan. Below are 5 tips for dating after a divorce.

Set Reasonable Expectations

Don't expect to meet the love of your life on the first date; instead, take it as an opportunity to meet someone new and perhaps make some new friends.  It's also a good idea to be in control of the date. Pick a place that you're comfortable with that's close to your home so that you feel that you're in a safe environment where you can feel relaxed and comfortable. 

If your standards are high, it might also be helpful to lower your standards a bit so you don’t eliminate any options that could be a good match for you even before even meeting them.

Don’t Get Discouraged

Just because you have a few bad dates do not give up on dating entirely. Sometimes it can take a couple of dates before you meet someone that you click with and that has the same values as you. 

Don't rush into dating unless you feel like you're ready. There are no timelines on when you should start dating after a divorce. Just because your other friends were dating immediately after a divorce does not mean that you should. When you do things on your own timeline you will be more comfortable with the entire process and the outcome will be more favorable. 

Do What Makes You Happy

One of the most important things after getting out of a marriage is self-care. Do what makes you happy.  Do the things you've never had the opportunity to go do. Travel the world. Or consider being a “tourist” in your own hometown or city.  You never know who you might meet along the way during your adventures.

Don’t Rush into Intimacy 

Don't rush into getting intimate with someone just to get over your ex because, in the end, you're only going to feel miserable. Give yourself the permission to explore what you want in a partner and what you don't want.  Make sure that who you decide to get intimate with has the characteristics that you would want in a future partner.  

Even if Someone is Not Your Ideal Match You Can Still Enjoy Their Company

Don't be so quick to end a date abruptly if your date is not your type. Give them the opportunity and get to know them you never know what can come out of that. They might end up being your best friend, or even set up with one of their friends that may be your ideal match.
