Dating advice for divorced women

Depending on how long you were in a committed partnership, it may be years since you were last single.You are now older, have a lot more responsibilities than you did in your early 20s, and may have children.

As a result, I often I hear divorced women say things such as, “I hate dating,” and “there are no good men left.” This view point will negatively impact, if not sabotage, any effort to find new love. If you’re feeling stuck in negative emotions such as anger and resentment, my suggestion is that you first commit to the on-going work of developing a more positive and open mindset, what world-renowned Stanford University psychologist and author Carol Dweck describes as a “growth mindset.” Simply put, a growth mindset is the willingness to embrace our challenges as opportunities for change and growth.In my mind, I was thinking, “When did I become old enough to date these men?” Clearly, I was not in touch with the fact that I was older (now in may 30s,) and so naturally, so was my dating pool!Kylie & Jonathan, founders of KYJO, a Toronto-based style and image boutique, say that there is actually very compelling research to support the ‘look good/feel good’ claim.“Various studies have shown that wearing clothing that fits you properly and makes you look great will give you a positive psychological boost.And so, should you find yourself dating after divorce, it is important that you be patient with yourself.
