Jenn: I am grateful to have you both here and really excited to talk about this topic, because I think after divorce AND over 40, dating can feel this whole other mountain to climb. So many ladies in our community have written in about awful experiences, not knowing what to do or how to start, and some have even just decided to give up and be alone forever. So, this is going to be really helpful for all of you watching today.
Highlights of what we covered:
What are some of the common fears you see women have around getting back out and dating?
Is there a right time to start to consider dating again after divorce?
Is there preparation or inner work that you suggest women focus on?
Are there questions women should ask themselves to help them know if they are ready?
When is the right time to have sex?
What should women expect to be different from before? Does “old fashioned” type of dating exist anymore?
The world of dating apps-use them or not?
What type of attitude toward dating do you suggest for women to have?
What are the possibilities when women are willing to take the risk and put themselves out there?
Anne and I share very different points of view about many of the topics, which made this interview engaging and fun. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
