Dating after divorce timing
We have been divorced for 2 years and although it saddens me that my family has been broken apart, I am happy that my ex and I have have managed to be civil enough to make it okay for the kids.

The lesson here is, it doesn’t mean there is something wrong with my first friend. I dated a guy several years ago who just wasn’t into me. I kept trying to change him and the situation and all that got me was frustrated and bitter, with low self-esteem. Remember that dating a player isn’t healthy for self-esteem and overall happiness.
