Datings after a marriage break up
A relationship break up can be a very painful experience.
Mourning the loss of the relationship for a time is perfectly natural.
“It can feel like you have to start all over again, and the routes you probably used when you were younger might not be open to you anymore.

“The two things I remember very clearly were that his face had gone that purple colour it went when he was feeling defensive, and the other was that I was so unbelievably stupid,” she says. I thought I had my life all mapped out and arranged – I thought I knew what my future looked like.” Three years on, she says, she barely remembers anything about the months after her husband left.
“To be honest, when I first went online, I had no intention of going on any dates,” she explains.
“I wasn’t really interested in meeting someone, but my daughter was persistent and said I needed the distraction.
