Dating in middle age after divorce
My husband and I divorced in 1996 after he left me for one of my work colleagues.I couldn't bear to stay in Hertfordshire, where we lived, so I left my friends and family and moved to Hastings to start afresh.
Mark is kind, patient, loving and completely selfless.After several years of remaining single, and raising children alone, I contemplate entering the dating market once again.At 42, Im expecting more challenges than previously encountered in my younger years.While I cannot determine if the articles (and quizzes, of course) directly played a role, I did get married, and the nightmare of having to navigate the dating scene was over. Divorced at 41 and thrown back into the pack of wolves, I felt like I had outgrown articles like, “10 Secrets That Will Drive Your Guy Crazy In Bed.” What I really wanted to know was whether dating as a middle-aged woman would be even remotely similar to what it was 20 years prior? Nowadays, when you are dating someone, forget talking on the phone.Today, nine years later, the answer to that question is very clear: Yes and no. Instead, you’ll have short, to-the-point conversations (which include making plans) via Facebook messaging, texting or email. If your guy (or girl) is gaga over you, he or she might be into having a conversation while seeing your face.
