What will dating do to you when it reminds you of those unresolved trust issues you thought you were past?
Will you come undone the first time you have sex with someone new?
The older you are, the harder it seems to be to meet people.
While in some ways that’s true if you have continued the same patterns you’ve always had (go to work, go to store, come home), it doesn’t have to be your reality.
Some may simply want the comfort of being in another relationship quickly and may rush the dating process to get to that familiarity. The first reason I urge you to take your time as you navigate how to start dating again is that you’ll probably need more time than you imagine to heal from the pain you’ve been through if you had a traumatic breakup or divorce.
At the very least, you get coffee or a meal out of it.And just think: it’s one more motivating reason to put on your yoga pants and head there, even if you feel like eating ice cream on the couch.
