But if it’s every single night, and the glass of whatever becomes like the cup of coffee in the morning, a necessary lubricant, there is probably an issue there.
And I’ve seen TV become the same sort of numbing or escaping addiction. You want clear and present as the normal relating condition between you and another consenting adult. And if the chemistry is working, there may be a pull towards the bedroom.
It doesn’t have to be about marriage, but can be more about learning to love and feel loved again. Be intentional with your time, attention, and actions. If you’re not in a hurry, there are plenty of fish in the sea, and plenty of time to find one that’s just right.
If you have doubts about dating after divorce, the following 8 tips will help you navigate the dating scene more easily.
When you are describing your relationship to a friend, notice the words you use. What are the highlights that you are proud to share about this person? Are you open and free with your expressions of affection or desire? Are you holding back, or withholding some information for fear of upsetting the other person?
All of these are clues that the relating part of the relationship might still need some exploration. And now that we have our kids, and our independence, we can be more intentional and clear about what we want in our next relationship.
And of course, as a divorced, and now-single parent, I am going to do everything I can to take care of my kids needs. Maybe the kid was a brat who was completely undisciplined.
We stopped cheerleading and became more of a negotiator, or even antagonist.
Listen to yourself as you talk about the relationship as well.
You are likely to take some of the “stand-in” damage for the anger that needs a place to dissipate. But pay attention to how this person deals with these setbacks or conflicts. In my experience, I find a potential partner who has had kids (they can be older or younger than mine) is more likely to be accepting and accommodating of my relationship to my kids. Sure, it’s an interruption, and sure it puts the “special friend” in a secondary role, but it’s clear to me that my kids emotional and physical well-being is much more important than me having a girlfriend.
It’s likely this is how any future conflict with you might evolve, as well. At least at this point in my life, while they are still in school, and still very much under my influence.
