I have 3 young children, under 7. I've been out on a few dates irl and online but haven't got past a first date with any of them. I have very little free time which I understand is off putting. So tell me your stories of where/ how you met lovely new partners after divorce and give me hope!
After a fair few horrors, I met mine online. I however, know him from many years ago when we were in our late teens. Both really liked each other, had a few snogs back in the day but nothing ever came of it. I had gone on to match and saw him and gave him a "how the bloody hell are you, its been 20 years!" message and we havent looked back. A week later, he took me out for dinner and it was wonderful.
I had been separated for 3 years by the time this happened though and had pretty much given up on finding someone who would treat me the way I knew I deserved.
Play the patience game OP, know what you want and dont move your goalposts because you want someone. I did and ended up in a terrible very abusive situation.
