After a divorce, you may be anxious to get back into the dating field to fill the void left by your spouse. To have the greatest success in returning to the dating world, it is important to be properly prepared both mentally and physically.
Step 1: Don’t begin dating until your divorce is final. A lot of emotions are draining you during a divorce, including disbelief, anger, confusion, and maybe even relief. This is not the time to jump back into the dating field. Wait for your divorce to be finalized and that you’ve had time to properly grieve, reflect, and accept the divorce. Then move onto the next step.
Step 2: Make changes to your life. A divorce gives you the great opportunity to improve your lifestyle and yourself, leaving you time to do things like find a Sugar Baby. Before running out to start dating, take the time to make a list of things you can do to improve your image, self-esteem, and look.
Think about why your marriage didn’t succeed and take the elements you were weak at and make them your strengths. For example, maybe you were a slob. Take the time to change your habits. Research ways to turn a bad habit into a good one then take action daily. And stick to it!
Also consider making changes to the way you look to improve the way you feel. If you are obese then take the time to lose weight. One of the best ways to lose weight is to give up soda for water, walk at least an hour a day, and eat more fruits/vegetables instead of processed foods. Remember that as your image and health improves, your self-esteem will improve too.
Step 3: Don’t let your family and friends push you into dating too soon. Take your time to be completely ready before you reenter the dating field. This will be done on your terms and not someone else’s terms
You’ve completed the first three steps and you’re ready to give online dating a try again. Congratulations! Because you’ve taken the time to improve yourself you will have a fresher and more positive outlook on the direction your life is going. Here are some tips for getting back into the dating scene via online dating:
Step 1: Approach it realistically. There’s nothing “magical” about online dating. You are simply trying to meet some like-minded people to date. In general you will get out of online dating what you put into it.
Step 2: Spend time on your profile and let her know exactly what type of arrangement you seek. Because you’ve taken the time to get into better shape and increase your self-esteem, you should have no problems posting photos of yourself. Research shows that profiles with photos get a lot more interaction than profiles without photos. Be sure to smile in your photos. When it comes to writing your profile be sure to be positive and fun. People want to date someone who is positive and outgoing, not someone who is negative and down on life.
Step 3: Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. The goal of online dating is to go on dates to see who turns your life upside down in a good way. Research shows that you should go on a first date within 17-23 days of meeting the person online. Anything longer is likely to create “assumptions” and “idealizations” from you and the person you are communicating with.
Step 4: Be a great date, and understand what it means to be a Sugar Daddy. Study past communications to come up with questions to ask your date. Be yourself, be positive, and be fun. Avoid discussions of politics, exes, and religion (unless you meet on a religious site). Avoid negative conversations like “what did you think of that terrorist attack? Isn’t that horrible?” You want to keep your conversations more fun and light-hearted. Listen carefully to your date so that you can ask follow-up questions based on what they talk about.
Online dating is a great way to start the next chapter of your life after a divorce. You may have a few bad communications or dates, but don’t let that get you down. When you meet that person that is “perfect” for you, your life will get even better.
