People should not be scared to date a person who has been divorced. There is still some stigma surrounding divorce in our society. In many people’s minds, divorce indicates you tried the whole marriage thing and you failed at it. There are a few reasons you should say yes to dates with divorcé(e)s. They know how to effectively break from their past. They have a defined sense of what they’re looking for. They notice problems faster, and seek to fix them more effectively. They’ve stopped following silly dating rules. Toss out the stigmas. Do what feels right. Focus on connecting with each person you meet.
