Acclaimed life coach David Essel sets up practical rules on when and how to get back into the dating game for divorcees.
“There still is a lot of work to do even after the papers are served proclaiming your divorce is legal before I recommend anyone get into the world of dating,” he intimates. That’s mostly because there are still a lot of things that we need to admit to ourselves. Otherwise, we’re just bound to repeat the same mistakes we made in our previous marriage.
Essel takes an introspective approach with his advice. He shares with us how important it is to “fall back in love with yourself” before you go find someone else to fall in love with.
Ultimately, he wants us to do a thorough and honest self-assessment on whether we want to start dating again only because we’re afraid to be lonely or if we’re truly ready to love again.
