The transition from divorced to single is sometimes very difficult. It can also be a time of renewal and hope for people ready to leave the pain behind and forge ahead. Talk to others who are experiencing the same metamorphosis.

Flowmom is single again. I believe there are others.

Maybe y'all can have a singles' party here?

I already have a thread but how could I not chime in on the singles again thread as well?

So for me, I started dating earlier this summer, after exH served me with D papers. I fully knew that I was doing it out of...normal reasons. (You know-- wanting to rebel, wanting to get validation, etc.)

I absolutely knew that I was not in the right place to start A RELATIONSHIP (it terrified me) but I still dated. One of the guys, zoobrew, really rocked my boat! (we ended up doing the deed on the 3rd date)

I figured that was the end of it (I am summarizing a long story) and moved on to focus on going back to work and taking care of S.

Still, a few months ago I decided to start dating again so I went back to match.com as well as okcupid. I went out with 2 guys from match.com but no go...I was not into them!

Meanwhile, zoobrew sends me some "hello" text messages in Sept, October and then again at the end of November.

Turns out he wants to go out again (there is more to the back story but it is another post).

What is funny is that after not being into the last 2 guys, I decided to just take a break from dating altogether for several months.

Still, I definitely had chemistry with zoobrew and although I STILL am not ready for a "relationship" I figure that having some fun is a-ok!

At present, we are set to meet up for a beer after Christmas...details to be determined. He asked me and I agreed. We have texted intermittently.

Sorry for the long summary but isn't that how it goes?

Dating as a single mom post divorce is 100 times more difficult than just being a single woman.

Am trying to keep my head in all of this and go into stuff KNOWING what I am getting into--don't want to be duped again!

Thank you for the welcome believer.

Lurker from MB

Married 7 years

Divorced this year; ex-husband decided that it would be best for me to find another man than work together on SF (he made our marriage completely celibate for the last two years)

No infidelity

I am a firm believer in MB principles for building a happy marriage.

The singlehood scares me; I am feeling like it's better to hide and remain on my own.

Ugh.

Lots of us here in the same circumstances. You'll fit right in.

So what are you doing to get a life?

I am trying to figure out who I am and trying to invite fun back into my life.

You'll hear about GAL (getting a life) here. It's a divorce buster thing, but seems to really work.

That's weird that your ex didn't want sex. Gotta be hard on your self esteem.
