When you’re dating, it’s your relationship with the other person that matters most.
You might also want to play down your dating as far as your children are concerned.
You might well have to adapt to the fact that your circumstances, or your partner’s, are more complicated than when you were last single. Some readjustment might well be necessary, particularly since many people still feel that the yardstick for domestic arrangements is the standard, nuclear family.
However, your appearance is very important when you’re in search of a new partner – and not just because looking your best is a way of getting attention!
But nobody likes to think of themselves as just the means to produce a baby.
For a successful relationship, it’s the way your partner makes you feel that matters – not whether he or she is able and willing to produce offspring as soon as possible.
It makes you excited about the idea of love for the first time in a long time.
Finally, that pesky urge to throw spitballs at every passing couple goes away a little because now you are one of those passing couples. You get to learn how someone new kisses and hugs and touches, and it's all super-exciting. It's a chance to make new memories in places where you might have bad ones.
