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.

    oh my gosh......I am so glad you had a heart to heart with that guy........the last thing you need is pressure! :) If he is really interested, he will be around when you ARE ready. Take the time for yourself, you need it. Big hugs, girl! :)

    Good for you in taking the time you need to grieve and heal. It is so important to allow yourself this time alone, no matter how hard it is, you'll find it is worth it.
