Rebound dating after divorce
First, ask yourself if the person you're with has the qualities you'd want in a long-term partner. Or is the physical attraction blinding you to how wrong you really are for each other?
Therapists agree after a divorce or break up, everyone needs time to heal and the majority suggest a period of one year post divorce before getting seriously involved.
And when you do get into a relationship after divorce, even if the guy is faithful to you and is madly in love with you, you may not believe anything he says.
This can happen because in the back of your mind, you'll have this ongoing chorus playing: "All men are just like my ex-husband. All men fall out of love and break up with you." It plays like a country song accompanied by an out-of-tune guitar.
While your ex-husband likely played a part, did you have any destructive habits?
Blame is one of the most common destructive habits I've seen in couples.
