Is it stupid to want to start dating again in less then a year of a divorce?(6 months) My marriage was basically over for a long time. We were just going through the motions. I'm tired of being alone, and to be brutally honest I miss sex. I'm not looking for the next husband. Just someone to spend time with.

  • Why would it be stupid? You're divorced, not dead. If I ever got a divorce I'd have something set up within the week. Lol. I wouldn't want to be alone either. I say go ahead and start dating, there's no law or rule that says you have to wait at ALL. Have fun!!!

  • No it isn't stupid. BOB isn't the same as having a warm blooded man next to you. I'd do it. :)

  • Ok stupid question # 2. Other then the people I already know(which of course are just friends) the only way I can think to meet a man worth dating is online or at a nightclub. Any opinions one way or the other about either of these? Of course I would be very careful with meeting then either way. I just don't want a "booty call". I want someone for an occasional dinner out, a movie, intelligent conversation, dancing,and of course the occasional "safe" sex! Does a guy like this exist or is he just in my imagination?

  • Life is too short. If you are ready - go for it. The only time it is recommended a person wait is when they are broken hearted, angry or not over their ex yet. In these cases, dating can make you feel worse. But you sound totally ready. Have fun!!

  • I just read your second post. I found my boyfriend through the online personals - I met lots of guys - many whom I wasn't attracted. Then I met one I kinda liked and we dated for 6 months. It didn't work out which was perfect timing. Then 2 weeks later I met my boyfriend. He was separated and wasn't divorced for another year (complicated divorce). We've been together for almost 2 years. I've been very happy. We've hit a few bumps along the way (what relationship doesn't) but I love him very much. I'm thankful we met through match. (continued)

  • We found each other in a way where we found we had so much in common even before we met. But even though we met this way, we still needed to go through all the dating rituals. Online personals are a great way of meeting - but it is just a tool. Nothing is perfect and you still have to make sure you feel comfortable and safe with the guy. Use your instincts.
