After months of rumors and scandals surrounding Tiger Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren, the two have called it quits.  “Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods confirmed today that they have divorced,” Nordegren’s Virginia-based law firm, McGuireWoods, confirmed last Monday in a statement to Access Hollywood.  “The Judgment provides for shared parenting of their two children.”  The former couple released a joint statement to the public reinforcing that their children are their primary concern.  They also added, “We are sad that our marriage is over, and we wish each other the very best for the future.”

How can you find love again after a divorce?

Cupid’s Advice:

Moving on from a commitment like marriage can be a slow transition.  Once you’re back in the dating world, the idea of love can finally start to take form again.  Cupid has some tips to help you along:

1. Over it: Before venturing into the dating world, make sure you aren’t still licking old wounds.  If the divorce papers or breakup discussions are finalized, then treat whatever is left of the relationship the same way.  Otherwise, you might be setting yourself up for future pain.

2. Don’t rush: There’s no need to hurry into a new relationship.  Many people rebound quickly and become deeply involved too soon after their divorce or breakup.  Sometimes it can lead to dating someone similar to your ex.  Make sure it feels right before becoming too committed.

3. Changes: If you’re dipping your feet back into the waters of dating, chances are you have a new outlook on life and a new attitude to go along with it.  This might be a good time to submit to a makeover, too!  During a serious relationship, many people have a tendency to let themselves go.  Now is a great time to fit and try out new fashions. Have fun with it!
