Coping with dating after divorce
When I was married, I was really happy or When I was married, I was really miserable. You were happy at certain times, so don't be afraid to remember those times, and you were miserable for some of it (probably more towards the end). For as many people who are telling you it was your ex's fault, there are that many people telling him or her it was yours. Basic Instincts Daley explains that, "from the outside, men seem to get over a divorce more quickly than women. Many seem to quickly find new partners or simply resolve to not get too close ever again.Seems like there's a lack of attention to what goes on the inside and the result is blindly going into another relationship with all the same baggage or just continue living with a fear of intimacy.In a way, it's another example of guys always wanting to fix things.Jumping into another relationship or avoiding them altogether are quick fixes which occur when we are either ignore or avoid the inner life.""Guys just tend to bury grief; they don't know what to do with the ugly emotions and therefore think finding a new partner will solve things or just burying ourselves in work will save us," Wong explains further.
