Dating in middle age after divorce
Once you can speak succinctly about your divorce without getting carried away, you know you’ve made it. Don’t let yourself be intimidated just because many of these weren’t around (or weren’t mainstream) the last time you were dating. Because there are more men than women on dating sites/apps, many fail to get matches or replies back to their messages.
The thing most of these men don’t realize is it’s not a problem with them — it’s the pictures they’re using.
“It helped, because I got to see what 'normal' looked like,” Roché says.
“I also saw that my ex wasn't the only guy who would want to be with me.

If you’re liable to turn a dinner conversation into long, winding rants about your ex — you’re just not ready yet.
The key here is that you’re able to focus on the woman you’re with and your connection with her. And believe it or not, using dating sites or dating apps is the absolute easiest way to re-enter the dating scene. You don’t have to decode signals from your co-worker or wonder if you’re really on a “date.” Additionally: • Instead of meeting 1-3 people per outing, you have access to thousands of people all at once • You know for sure the women are single and looking • You know how old they are, some background about them • You get an impression of what their life is like from their pics and bio before you start talking • You can break it off clean if you don’t choose to pursue a relationship (unlikely to run into each other again) My #1 pick for a divorcee in his 30s/40s is Ok Cupid. As a runner-up, you might also check out the Bumble mobile app. Just one word of caution before you get out there: be sure to put some effort into your dating profile pictures.
“You can't heal unless you're on your own,” Tauber says.
“You need to find single friends to have a social life with.” Not only have you changed since you were last single, but so have your social life, circle of friends, and routines.
