Scared to start dating dating when in early sobriety
I am a 35 year old single mom and I have been divorced for 2 years.
My ex boyfriend and I broke up a few years ago but whenever I meet a new guy I like, I push him away because I feel guilty i am also afraid that if i go out with someone else, what we had is truly over. Explain to the guy you want to date about your situation, so he'll understand.
I think it’s important to take time to heal from divorce.
People need time to adjust to the major changes that divorce brings: different living situations, moving, financial struggles, and having to share time with your kids. It’s the death of your hopes, dreams, and beliefs that you will spend the rest of your life with your spouse. It’s wise to wait a year or so, so that you can evaluate your life, take inventory of who you are, change the things about you that you don’t like, and discover what exactly you’re looking for in a partner.
rather than focusing your attention and energy on identifying what doesn't work, and the painful reasons why…
In this community tons of y'all are out there hittin the scence, but I am scared to death to try dating myself.
