What are some things to be careful of in a relationship after your divorce?

Cupid’s Advice:

Dating again post-divorce can be both exciting and challenging, especially if you have been off the market for quite some time. While you may feel you are ready to start a love life once more, there are many things to be careful about in new relationships. Some things will be obvious and some will sneak up on you. So to get you started, here are a few no-no’s to think about when saying yes to a date:

1. Jumping in too soon: While there is no set time for when to start dating again, you can jump into the dating pool too soon. The main thing to focus on is whether you have healed from your divorce. Taking the time to get to loving your single self and realizing what you did wrong before will help you not to make the same mistakes again.

2. Comparing your ex to your new partner: One thing a potential partner hates is being compared to the ex or even listening about him/her over dinner. So try not to do it. While you do not want to find an exact replacement to your ex, keep in mind that every person is different and will not necessarily act the same as your ex in a similar past situation. Bottom line, keep your ex in the past.

3. Repeating the same mistakes: A common thing to do when you are not ready to date is to repeat the same mistakes. This usually happens in not taking the time to analyze what went wrong in your previous marriage and what responsibility you had in those mistakes. Without unlearning the wrong way and relearning the right way to handle a conflict, you are doomed to repeat.
