It’s important to send some key messages in that conversation: I’m taking this dating thing slow, I’ll typically date in a way that will not take away from our time together as a family, you’ll be the first to know if I ever develop any genuine feelings for anyone.
How much you want to discuss your date with your children depends on your relationship with them.
My ex-husband and I separated after 16 years of marriage. Having personally navigated the scary, thrilling, messy world of dating post-divorce with three kids in tow, here's some advice I can share with other brave souls out there. If you're like me you have absolutely zero time to spend bar-hopping/surfing Yahoo personals; you're too busy trying to raise people to spend any time on all that nonsense. The nonchalance with which you may have approached dating in the past will likely be replaced with a renewed vigor to find a "partner." Maybe you want to spend a few years post-divorce fooling around because you have soundly sworn off all.serious.relationships.
High school sweethearts, we married a year after I graduated and by the time we separated we had three kids, ages 14, 11 and 9. Well, I hadn't been in any relationship except the one with my husband since I was 18. The truth is, finding people to date post-divorce may be more difficult. You will now need to consider not only whether or not your prospective partner is suitable for you, but also if said partner is suitable to co-parent. My advice is to pay attention to potential singles in the produce aisle, as right away, you know they're healthy. But, at some point your mortality is likely to catch up to you, and you will realize that you don't want to be alone forever.
Be cautious not to be overly excited about dating because your teens are about to get to that stage themselves and you want to preserve the excitement and healthy conversations about dating for them.
However, you may have a child who wants to hear some simple things about how the date went and it’s okay to share that information, but beware that you’re not using your children as your best friend.
He was older then me, about 30 and he had never dated anyone, he was religious, kind,and educated, he seemed like everything I wanted.
He flew out to meet me and stayed for the weekend (in a hotel, I didn't stay with him)I was always honest with him regarding my past and my son. He parents thought getting married and having a child right a way would be too much for him to handle.
It was the first year I went, and even though it was for singles, I was dating someone at the time, a man previously married. My boyfriend and I spent time together, but we weren’t inseparable like you might think.

( i was not taught how to pray as a child) We got divorced because he did not treat me right. I singed up to one of those arabic/islamic dating sites.
Choices based on the present but without enough regard on the past.
These similarities make me think it is wise for women to ask four questions before dating a divorced man.
