over 35 datingA few months ago, we discussed  the issue of dating after a divorce. We also outlined what you can do to get back in the dating game after undergoing a divorce.

In this article, we provide three more tips you can follow to improve your prospects of finding love after divorce. Read on.

Socialize at local events

Check events that you like that are happening near your area and engage in activities that interest you. Have fun in your search for that special someone. Do not take up an activity that you have no interest in just because you want to meet a mate. Along the same note, do not show that you are desperate. It is not guaranteed that you will meet someone during these gatherings so you have to be open to any possibility.

For divorced women, the best way to go is perhaps having lunch at restaurants where doctors, lawyers and most over 40s males frequent. Visit any place or attend an event that men or women in your age group.

Pursue what you want and take necessary steps to get it. If you want a doctor, make frequent visits to a hospital not because you are sick but because you are going to the hospital’s cafeteria. Do whatever is necessary to get the partner you want.

Do not sit at home and wait; get out and do something. Go out and meet both men and women instead of locking yourself up in thoughts.

Be comfortable with your body

Do not base your decision on some set preconditions which are related to physical looks and characteristics.… Continue Reading
