Clinical psychologist Judith Sills recently published a book entitled Getting Naked Again: Dating, Romance, Sex, and Love When You’ve been Divorced, Widowed, Dumped, or Distracted. She is determined to help women get back into dating after the end of a relationship. She addresses the fact that many women are uncertain about getting into dating and romance because it has been awhile since they were in that situation. She also discusses the difference between being widowed and being divorced, saying that divorce is usually accompanied by a lot of anger, and can feel like a public failure, even though the loss is just as real. She says that getting back into dating requires a new mindset that welcomes the possibility of a relationship and that women and men should both be prepared for changes in relationships with family and friends as they begin dating again.
Many people going through a divorce are filled with rage and sadness that makes them feel as though life is over for them. While divorce is difficult, it is not the end of the world – for many it is the beginning of a new and happier life. Getting back into the mix of things and dating after divorce can be the first step.
