Not Ready Yet
Saturday, November 06, 2010
So my divorce has been final for a month, and I've been happy getting reaquainted with my single self. An ex-boyfriend starts chatting me up on Facebook, then starts asking me out on dates. I told him I wasn't ready, but he kept asking. I was feeling really pressured, and on the drive home from work I just started bawling in my car.
I got up the nerve to call him, tears and all, and explained that I was still reeling from the divorce and was not ready to even think about venturing into the dating world. I think he finally understood, since he has been through the divorce process as well.
The truth is, four months ago, I was married, and thought I would be for the rest of my life. We had been in counseling for a few months, but I was hopeful that things would work out. I'm rebuilding my life, by myself, and 90% of the time, I feel pretty good.
