Dating After Divorce- Is it Easier for a Man to Date After Divorce or a Woman?

No matter how a person looks at it, divorce hurts. Healing does not take place overnight. The factors that played a role in the divorce often play a huge role in how soon both the man and woman start dating again. According to the Census Bureau of the United States, an average of 19.3 Americans file for divorce every year. It is estimated that roughly 40 to 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce. This may sound very negative in its depiction but do not despair because all is not lost. What this means is that there is a great deal of people out there dating or looking to find other eligible individuals to date on a regular basis.

Navigating the complicated world of dating can be very confusing when a person has been married for a number of years and has recently gone through a divorce. It can be especially devastating if you are not the one who wanted the divorce in the first place. It is so important to give yourself as much time as possible to cope with your divorce and the aftermath before you make the decision to get out into the world again and start dating, or at least start looking around.

The question- is it easier for a man to date after divorce or a woman is a very complicated one to answer and the answer may be different depending on whom you ask. Marriages end for all sorts of reasons and divorce can be as devastating for the spouse who was left behind as it is for the children that are caught in the middle. Most of the time women are the custodial parents and therefore have to learn how to take over the role of both mother and father. For this reason the greatest amount of regrouping must take place with the mother and children which often means that the woman takes longer to even consider the possibility of dating because she is taking care of her children. A mother must not only cope with her own grief at the loss of her husband but also help her children cope with their feelings of pain, betrayal, loss and confusion.

Regardless of who makes the transition to dating first, be it the woman or the man, it is important to take it slow and to get out there and meet people gradually and to not be in a hurry to find the next great love of your life. As a woman always set your own rules about what you are looking for, be it a casual friendship or a more serious romance but give yourself plenty of time to meet men. You will not succeed any quicker if you plunge head first into something you are not ready for. This is not good for yourself, your children or the man you meet down the line.
