Once you’re ready to go back on the dating scene after a divorce, what are your online matchmaking options?
These can range immensely in terms of complexity and features. Certain simple cell phone apps allow you to pair up with attractive mates who also find you attractive. Some niche dating sites focus on Christian singles; others focus on farmer singles; and so on.
Your first step: figure out what platforms or technologies make sense, given the amount of time you want to devote to the dating process as well as where you are with respect to the divorce process; whether or not you have kids; what is your disposal income is; and how ready you are, emotionally and psychology, to date and repartner.
Should you try to solve the online dating puzzle yourself or get help?
This question comes up a lot, especially among newly divorced people who don’t have much experience with online matchmaking. Maybe you got married way back when AOL was the most popular email server and Netscape was the browser of choice. Perhaps you’ve never used cell phone dating apps or sophisticated niche dating sites.
While you can learn the nuances of these technologies on your own, you might be well served by getting someone to coach you through the process of setting up your profile and explaining the rules and niceties. The same principle — “get help with complex issues, so that you don’t have to learn everything yourself from scratch” — applies to the divorce process. That’s why we encourage newly divorced or separated people to connect with the Toussaint Law Firm to schedule a free case evaluation with us.
