Dating a divorced woman
She has gone through the worst: a sense of defeat, possibly rejection if her ex-partner cheated on her and left her for another woman, a feeling of aloneness and low self-esteem.This may be her framework for how she perceives the world, and especially men, right now.But don’t let that dissuade you from moving forward with your love interest.You will find that dating a divorced woman can be an incredibly rich experience, as she knows what the stakes are when it comes to true love.What I also notice is that I don’t seem to hear any/as many happy stories about people (like me) who were married 20-25 years, got divorced, and then found happiness/ marriage, etc again. I have always believed that 50’s is in fact, no-man’s land, whether you are single, married, divorced or widowed, the reason being that you aren’t really young anymore, but you aren’t old either. I am me and all I can do is live life to my potential. The thing that bothered me most about your email is this part: You write: “found happiness/marriage etc. It seems to me that lots of middle aged women get divorced and stay single. And, older men have interest but that isn’t really fair either. I would like to know your thoughts on the likelihood of 50 year old women finding a second life partner. It’s really funny that I would get this email from you, wondering about dating over 50. Because I’m turning 50 in 6 months, and I’m recently single again. I have had some issues while shopping for clothes in recent years, because all the clothing out there either seems too young or too old for me. again.” The slash between happiness and marriage clearly indicates that you equate happiness and marriage, and that’s something I definitely don’t do. I would ultimately like to be married again (I think) but anyone who reads this blog should know by now that I don’t feel marriage brings happiness unless you wait for the right person and/or the right time.

Expect to have some less than ideal moments with the children.
Whether they are small or grown, your presence in their mother’s life may not be accepted with joyous high-fives. She will have developed patience and good communication skills so the bond you will make will be solid and enriching.
After all, divorced people can come with certain challenges such as kids, ex-spouses and unresolved grief or anger about the divorce.
However, divorce does have some positive aspects, and divorced women can be a good choice for dating.
