"Would someone really want me?" After a divorce, many people ask themselves this question. It is perfectly normal to feel unease and helplessness when re-entering the dating scene. Before you do start dating again, take some time to make yourself the best you can be. Work on improving your own self and self-esteem. Dating requires confidence; do things that lift you up and make you feel better about yourself. Once you have done this, you will be happier with yourself, more prepared to meet someone new and ready to start dating.
