Our Topic this week is Dating after a Divorce.

Maryanne writes: I’m recently divorced and just started dating. I met a man who is also recently divorced and we really hit it off. The problem is that I feel so insecure about moving forward and if his intentions are just to have fun or to date more seriously. I want to ask him, but don’t want to seem needy. Any relationship advice?

While it’s scary to date again after a divorce, it’s very important to protect yourself and be honest by asking him what he is looking for in his dating life- something serious, or casual? It’s not “too soon” to have this talk, and you can avoid arguments and protect yourself by getting the answer to this critical question.

You also want to make sure that you are focusing on your own emotions—how ready are you to move into a serious relationship? What are you looking for in this next relationship? Try to be as self-reflective as you can and make sure you have learned the important lessons from your marriage and other relationships as you want to make sure you move into a more evolved relationship with someone who values you.

Our topic today is Long Distance Relationships

Olga writes: I’m dating a man who had to move cross-country due to a job promotion. I have an established business and life in New York and wasn’t ready to move so we decided to try long distance. Initially everything was going great but lately he’s started to be less available and now I haven’t spoken to him in 3 days. Can you give me relationship advice–Should I move on or try to salvage what we have?

Long distance Relationships need a lot of care and nurturing-You need to reach out to him and confront him with these questions:

  • Are you still interested in this relationship?
  • If so–What makes this relationship different from others you have had in the past?
  • What are ways you can work on together to feel more connected and maintain momentum given our long distance challenge?

If he is willing to put in the effort then make the decision together. If not, then tell him the distance is too much and that you respect his decision but have to move on.
