Dating after divorce is such an adventure. Your heart may be broken, but you can’t have a pity party for the rest of your years. Maybe you are not quite ready for love, but you are at least ready to make some new friends and start dating. Ahhh… dating. It can be such an amazing experience. It’s time for you to step outside of your comfort zone.

At any rate, your dating time is now. You are single and are ready for some companionship. What have you been waiting for? If you have ever been a doormat learn the key to stopping today!
How do you find someone? Where do you find that special man? Have you been sitting at home on the couch expecting Mr. Romantic Boyfriend to show up? I guess it is possible that he could be your next pizza delivery guy, but if that’s your looking-for-love plan, you better start ordering a lot of takeout.
When my ex husband asked me to marry him, he actually was the pizza delivery guy. When I told an acquaintance I was getting married, he said, “Oh I guess you’re marrying your meal ticket huh?” He didn’t know the real story. I could have free pizza any time my little heart desired. He was my meal ticket literally, but a gal can only eat so much pizza.
So if you don’t want to be eating bread and red sauce every day for the rest of your life, it’s time to get out there and check out some new but not-so-secret places.
