Tentative In Dating


Tentative woman seeking kind man to date.  Tentative as in she’s divorced after more than 20 years of marriage, but she’s healed her heart.  Tentative because she’s experienced the dark side of love, but she’s still full of hope that good love exists.  Tentative because she’s afraid to open her heart again to have it broken.

Seeking:  authentic man who has his shit together.  No phonies, no games, little baggage.  Good job, kind heart and caring about others.  Happy, secure with himself and enjoys life.  Narcissist need not apply.

What you get:  kind, caring 50 year old divorcee with 2 kids who are pretty self-sufficient as am I.  I’m short, but still pretty thin.  I’ve healed my heart and I still believe in love.  I enjoy dancing, writing and reading.  I’m spiritual and I believe in God.  I love to be out in Nature whether it’s on the beach or in the mountains.  I don’t know how to horseback ride, but I’d love to learn.  I have cats so if you’re allergic, forget it.  I like all animals.  I love traveling.  I’ve had a lot of life experience and I’m still here.  I’m happy being me and would love to meet you!

So any advice?  You know I’m not online dating, but those are my tentative thoughts on the subject! LOL

    Just something to think about and keep in mind… I haven’t been reading your blog long, so I don’t know how fresh your divorce is, but do not be surprised if one day, out of the blue something hits you like a ton of bricks and you realize you aren’t quite as healed as you thought. It is amazing how damaging a bad relationship can be and how there may be these hidden little doozies you didn’t even know about hiding until you least expect it to pop their head out.

    I’m not saying any of that to discourage you or make light of your progress. Not at all. Just that when those times happen, they tend to trip you up, even if it is a little one, and make you feel bad because you suddenly realize that you aren’t as healed as you thought. That can be nearly as hard as handling some of the initial healing. It is a process. There are steps, but you don’t get through them unless you keep taking those steps forward. And you are doing an AMAZING job of doing just that.

      TJ THANK YOU!!! This healing is a process and the divorce was final a few months ago, but we were separated for over 3 years before it was finished. I think you are right and I agree with you. And I am grateful for your advice and your kindness xo

  2. If you find a man like that let me know too! lol


  3. I have absolutely no idea how to write one of these! Just think about what the three most important qualities you want are. And look at the guys profiles and see what you find appealing, how they phrase things etc

    I think this is great. I love the Narcissist comment and cat’s sentence, lol. ❤ I wouldn't give up my animals either. 😉
