woman on couchIf there’s one thing people are more scared about than divorce it’s dating after divorce.

If this is you and you’ve found yourself recently divorced and back on the dating scene, here are some tips from relationship expert Aaron Anderson to get yourself back out there and find a new love of your life.

Tip #1: Stop Thinking About Your Divorce.

Nobody’s divorce was a good experience. In fact, a divorce leaves most people feeling once bitten and twice shy. In order to get yourself back out there you need to let go of those hard feelings and regain confidence in yourself and in relationships again. If that’s hard to do for you, find a counselor you can talk with about it. This is a great way not only to get over your divorce but to improve yourself so you have more to offer others in the dating world.

Tip #2: Don’t be Embarrassed About Your Divorce

People who are divorced often feel like they’ve failed at marriage and as a result. But don’t sweat it. Be confident in yourself with all your quirks and ‘baggage’ (including your divorce). There’s nothing more attractive than a person with confidence.

Tip #3: Just Be Yourself.

I know. I know. It’s so cliche’. But its true. There’s no good that can come from pretending to be someone you’re not. And there’s no need to. There’s nothing wrong with being who you are. Being yourself and being confident about it will ensure that you find someone who is crazy about you. And when you find someone who is crazy about you, sparks will fly and your relationship will be off to a great start.

Dating after divorce isn’t always fun and games. You don’t need a marriage counselor to tell you that. But these three tips can help make sure you get off to the right foot. And that’s a great step closer to a great relationship. Maybe one that will last this time.
