Dating after a divorce for women
Krysta: My ex-husband and I were together for two years before we got married and were married for six months before things started falling apart, rapidly. We cared about each other—and still do—and had a great friendship, but that’s all it was in the last couple of years.
Getting married young meant we each had a lot of personal growing to do and we grew apart.
Krysta: There were a lot of signs before our wedding that I ignored.
I felt as if I had to go through with the wedding—my parents paid all this money to create me my perfect Pinterest board, fantasy wedding.
Unless I’m getting serious with someone or it comes up naturally, I never really bring it up.
Krysta: I like to be honest and upfront about that fact that I recently got divorced.
He was a second-year medical student and I was working as a medical records clerk. She was someone I wanted to start a family with and someone who I saw being the mother of my future children.
It worked, but I had to tell a few people and it was awkward, but no one got up and sprinted for the door.
We had an instant connection, and I felt like a part of my soul knew her before.
Krysta: I married a guy I met living in Tampa back in 2014.
My marriage changed the way I view men and their behavior.
I missed all the signs with my ex-husband, so now I pay very close attention to the smallest things. Now, I’ve reentered the dating pool as an adult without religion telling me what I can and can’t do.
