Newly Divorced and trying to date.

I have met lots of nice guys but I'm not attracted to any of them. I'm never going to be happy again. My ex cheated and left me.

Now he's doing his best to make me hell. Since he left. I wish he would stop. I met a really nice guy in the Navy after 2 weeks he's planning our life as a couple. Ugh.. I'm going to be alone forever.

Any advice?

Take time to be alone for a while and focus on your kids.

Get your rebound out of the way and then look for a decent guy.

Spend some "me" time alone for a while. Let life happen. It'll happen when the time is right.

Took me a year to be able to be with someone "new".  Why not give yourself some breathing room? Hang out with some girl friends, take come classes, work out at the gym, etc.  Keep yourself busy and STOP looking. The RIGHT guy will FIND you.

I agree. Seek counseling. Sometimes finding yourself first is necessary. You need healthy coping mechanisms. I divorced 5 years ago with two kids. Loneliness is a natural feeling just don't let it or your ex control you. I learned the hard way. Trust me, counseling gave me a whole new outlook on life. Good luck.

Take time to be alone and focus on getting your stuff together and focus on your kids too.That should be your priority not finding a new man. Imo, your priorites are all messed up.

Thank u for the response, my daughter always comes first. When her dad wanted to be free. I did what a parent does. I made sure her life was normal as it could be. While he was out partying and sleeping with women. In my state you have to be separated for a year ( if u have children) to get a divorce. So I have been on my own handling my business for 15 months.

I have just started thinking about dating. I go out a few times a month with friends and have been asked out . Socialized in a group settings. Gave one guy my number. Went to dinner a few times, and he wants to marry me.

So thank you, but you are wrong.
