Dating - Separation & Divorce

The decision to end a marriage or partnership can be a very difficult one, particularly if there are children involved. Being single again can make dating new territory. Deciding why, when, and how often you’d like to be out dating, as well as who you are looking to find are all factors to take into consideration. Are you looking for another long-term and serious commitment, or are you looking for something more light-hearted? If you have children, as you begin dating, they become aware of the changes to your social schedule, or the new “friend” in your life, and may have questions, or need reassurance. Deciding how much, or when, to tell your ex that you are now dating again can also present certain challenges, depending on the circumstances under which you split, the relationship you now have with your ex, whether or not they are comfortable with a new partner being introduced to their children or amount of time that has passed since your separation. Are you newly single, and looking for dating resources in your community? Would you like ideas or information on how to talk to either your ex, or your children about your dating life? Would you like the help and guidance of a professional? Embarking on a new chapter in your life can be fun and exciting, but it can also bring certain challenges. If you are looking for resources, information, and community support, you’ve come to the right place. You are not alone. Connect with others who may be going through the same thing, find professional help and resources near you. The Kinjunxion community is here to help.
