Online Dating after Divorce

Divorce has been discussed a lot in the news this week, following the announcement that Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt.

Going through a divorce is a traumatic experience that you wish upon your worst enemy, but unfortunately, more than 40 percent of marriages do end in divorce.

If you are divorced, or seperated, you may be considering joining an online dating website such as Muddy Matches so that you can meet people for friendship, dating, or even to meet a new life partner.

Here are some tips for online dating following on from a divorce.

Take time to recover

Don’t be tempted to rush straight into online dating to help you to recover. Take time out on your own to come to terms with your new single status before you start to look for someone new. By moving too quickly you are likely to find the whole situation to be daunting, which will put you off online dating in the future.

Build new friendships

Online dating websites aren’t just for dating, on Muddy Matches we have the option for people to choose ‘looking for friendship’ in the ‘interested in’ section. Building new friendships will help to expand your social life, to build your confidence and it can lead to dating if you meet the right person.

Be honest about your status

It may be tempting to select the ‘single’ option if you are divorced, or separated, however it shows dishonesty from the start and some people prefer to date people who have already been married.

Don’t stalk you ex

If you happen to join the same dating website as your ex partner, make sure to add them to your ‘block’ list so that they do not appear in your searches.

It’s completely natural to want to know what they are up to, but it will only prolong the pain for you if you follow their every move online.

Do embrace the experience

When you are ready to start online dating, it can be a fun experience, where you can back to flirting, can meet lots of new people and can find someone who is your perfect match.
