3 Tips For Finding Love Again After Divorce [EXPERT]
Are you getting back into the dating scene?
Falling in love again following a divorce may seem impossible, but these three tips beg to differ

For individuals who have suffered the pain of divorce, finding love again can be tremendously challenging. It isn't just the process of getting back into the dating game that is difficult – the heart and mind can create barriers that makes the searching process feel like walking through quicksand: getting nowhere fast. 

In the aftermath of divorce, there can be damage left behind where joy, trust and future dreams once resided. This makes finding love more difficult for the divorced compared to single, unmarried individuals out in the dating world. For having had love and lost can make a man or woman feel less confident that they will ever find a life partner again. Why Is Divorce On The Rise?

For those looking to find love again after a divorce, there are tips that can help you succeed – putting yourself on the path to happiness once more by way of a strong, healthy and brand new relationship:

1. Healing First, Loving Later. A divorce comes with grieving, just as a death would. Whether you initiated the divorce or didn’t want it whatsoever, there is a healing time required before you are ready to date again.

Trying to jump back into dating and skipping the grief process altogether will not work in the long run. You need to have some quiet time acknowledging and coming to terms with the loss of a marriage. Some may find healing through therapy, reading or yoga. No matter which method helps them heal, when the mind, body and spirit feel connected and healthy once more, that is the time to begin searching for a new love – no sooner.

2. Letting Go Of Bitterness. To find meaningful love after divorce, many men and women re-enter the dating world carrying a tremendous load of emotional baggage with them. They may think they are hiding it from view, but until they truly let go of the anger, hurt and resentment, it is actually there for all to see.
