Post divorce dating first date realities
You may be surprised to realize that there are aspects of your ex that you want again or perhaps characteristics that were not important before but are now.
For me, my ex was never a match for me physically (I’m not talking about intimacy here; we were an excellent match in the bedroom).
I have different priorities and goals than I did when I was in my mid 20s.

Needless to say, the dating scene is a bit different for me now, but mostly in a good way. To me, I had failed at marriage and I was still in a bit of a funk as I sorted out those issues.
