Dating fear after divorce
You (or someone you know) may have gone through the stages of being cheated on, divorced, and single again.

There should be no expectations when meeting new people. You can join groups for everything you can possibly imagine including hiking, art, photography, travel or dining out.
If you love sports, buy a ticket to an event that you love. They also have events for men and women our age and can be a great opportunity to meet new people, whether you are looking for love or not.

There are plenty of websites and forums that provide support and hope; Google “infidelity forum” to find a group where you can share your thoughts and fears. When you find a new partner, create boundaries and rules together.
His assessment requires a fundamental shift in thinking – women must not be afraid to make the first move!
