Finding Love after Divorce

6 Truths About Teens and Dating

Finding The Time

Life can be busy and trying to fit dating into a packed schedule of careers, children and social lives can be very difficult. Online dating solves this problem. It makes finding that special someone so much easier. Especially for people looking to meet a new partner later in life.

The thought of finding love again after a divorce is the dream of many who experience the breakup of a marriage. Some quick jump back into the dating pool. But others are a bit more cautious, for fear of being hurt again. But know, whatever you are currently feeling is completely normal! 

The ink may be dry on your divorce papers, but that doesn’t mean you have to move on until you are ready.

You may need more time to process your feelings before getting back into dating. Let’s be honest, if you can’t stop talking or thinking about your ex, your date is probably won’t be very impressed! 

We also recommend ensuring that your divorce or separation is completely finalised before you start dating. You don’t want to have any complications! Getting back into the dating pool is a big step. Whether you are looking for fun or looking to get into a serious relationship again. You should make sure you are 100% ready for it! Chances are you have been with your ex for many years, so it will most likely feel strange sharing your life with someone new. One tip is to be completely honest about your past!

Online Dating can be intimidating but if successful, it can lead to a loving relationship. And that’s something that everyone wants, isn’t it?! It’s definitely worth trying. People who sign up for online dating are naturally more open to meeting new people. It’s not like meeting someone at a bar or club. People who join an online dating service may be more serious about finding love and are also more likely to meet people they’re more compatible with from the start.

Dating is hard in your 20’s and 30’s but it can be even more difficult to meet the right person as you get older, especially if you’ve been burnt by a divorce or just find it that much harder to put yourself out there. But don’t give up hope! 

If you are looking at getting back out there, then our online dating events are just for you! Finding love after divorce is possible!

How to Boost your Dating Confidence

Men and Women: Want to up your dating game in 2020? Don't start chats with  'hey', go for long walks on the beach - The Economic Times

The most classic, useless dating advice of all time — which you’ve undoubtedly heard countless times is to just ‘be yourself’. This advice simply doesn’t work in the real world. In the cut-throat world of dating, you’ve got to generate an appealing prospect of yourself and create a powerful first impression. This can be hard if you don’t have any self-confidence or if you are new to the dating scene. But don’t worry, Unified Dating is here to help you shine! Read below for our tips on how to boost your dating confidence!

Push yourself 

The quickest road to growing in confidence is to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Life is nice and easy when you don’t push yourself, but it doesn’t give you that incredible buzz that you get when you do! Pushing yourself when it comes to dating will be scary, yes, but when you begin to feel confidence during your date, you will begin to realise it’s all worth it! This tip is not just for dating, you should try and commit to doing something once a day that is out of your comfort zone. In time you will find your confidence will soar and you will thoroughly enjoy doing new and exciting things.

Fake it till you make it!

Any blog on boosting confidence for dating, will most likely mention this little gem – fake it till you make it. You don’t need to be at the top of your game before you go on a date, you can just give the illusion that you are. You may as well make sure you’re projecting the best version of you, whether it’s real or not. And the secret is, if you do it enough times, it becomes real, and you really do start to believe it yourself!

Let bad experiences go

Have you had bad dating experiences in the past? To be honest, most people probably have. But it’s what you do next that counts. You can either let those bad dating experiences go on to define your dating journey or you can shrug them off, put them behind you and move on! Learn from those bad experiences and keep a positive mindset that you will, before you know it, meet your match.


Are you someone that doesn’t stop talking? Well, this one’s for you! While your date may love to listen to you nattering on about your life, there’s a good chance they may be put off if you come across self-centred and a gossip. This may not be you at all, but sometimes in nerve-wracking situations, you may find yourself talking more than you normally do. Remember, that they are also in the same situation and they probably feel just as nervous as you!

Ask Questions

Asking questions is a big part of coming across confident. Confident people know the right questions to ask to allow the person they are talking to, to blossom and feel heard. A confident person knows it’s not about them, they can give the other person the floor and talk about themselves or whatever the topic of conversation is. 


Like everything, practise makes perfect! The only way to improve your dating skills and become more confident on dates, is simply to go out on dates. Keep putting yourself out there and don’t give up – your prince charming could be just around the corner! As you go on more dates, you’ll find you start to take it in your stride, you’ll become an old-hand at it. Your confidence will start to soar.

It’s no secret that the world of dating can be a bit of a minefield, more so if it’s been a while since you were last on the romantic scene.
