Dating after divorce at 40
In the first part of this series, we found out how these mid-life singletons tackle the novelty of dating and having sex with new people.
But how do they fare once the dust of divorce has finally settled? And how likely are they to find lasting love second time around?
Give or take a few sporadic dates, I spent more than a decade on my own.More than half said they were happier than they had ever been.And while the majority were open to the idea of a good relationship, they weren't obsessed with finding a new partner.One survey conducted earlier this month, for which 1,000 women were interviewed, emphasised how much more independent women over 50 are compared to their mothers' generation.Almost half had opted to learn a new skill after reaching 50, with computer courses, a foreign language, cooking and salsa dancing among the most popular.
