Dating after divorce timing
The plurality of experts agree that there's no [time] requirement; as soon as they'd like is just fine. Still, while it's up to parents to use their best judgment about when to start dating again, there are some rules all divorcés should follow when it comes to revving up the romance again. I’ve been divorced for five years and I only recently started dating again.Now that I have, I’ve come to the realization that I waited too long.
The thought of clearing out my closet to make room for another person’s clothes makes me feel resentful. I’ve filled my days with my kids, my work, and my interests and I can’t imagine making room for someone else and their kids, work, and interests.
I’m not saying I can’t or won’t; it’s just hard to imagine caring enough about someone to want to make room for them in my life.
