Sex, Love and Romance Post Divorce
with Laura Campbell
Sex and love are good things. The rules have changed and you can have sex outside of a relationship successfully; the key is that both parties need to be honest with each other. If not, it can be hard emotionally, especially for women. Define what it is.
When it comes to your kids, they do not need to know the details of your dating life. When you have a date, you are “out with friends”, or you’re “going out”. If they can handle it, explain that you are in a transition and you are meeting new people in your life. And if you meet someone special and you get in a relationship, you will let them know.
Take your dating outside of your town. It’s no one’s business, but you still don’t want to invite gossip. You may feel like you need to justify your behavior, but you don’t. Be sensitive to your kids and your family’s reputation, but it’s OK to explore new relationships. You have one life to live. Is that a Soap still?
