Picture with me, you’ve been married for 7 years, in fact marriage is all you’ve known. Married young, no adult dating experience and then all of the sudden, wham! you find yourself right smack dab in the world of singleness. Dating is completely foreign, reading the opposite sex from a single perspective all of the sudden becomes incredibly perplex. Little things you say now take on a whole new meaning, saying the slightest wrong thing can give the other person entirely different implications then you wished to convey.
How do you act on a date? What do you say? What do you not say? What is too much and what is not enough? What behaviors are normal, which ones should just not be tolerated? Where do you go? Where you should you never, I mean absolutely never go with your date? What did they mean when they said that? When should you call? Wait a minute… why didn’t they call?
Dating to a person who is newly single can seem like a disastrous mystery. What makes matters even worse is your heart is involved. Maybe not initially, but when we date there comes a point where our heart wants to have a say so. Does this sound like the most tricky situation ever? Does it sound like a cruel joke? How can some ever overcome such a strenuous situation?
I did and this was my story. Thats right, I was young, newly single and without a clue how the dating world actually worked. I married incredibly young and found myself out in the dating scene with questions lingering around, over me and everywhere, all expecting answers. That is if I was going to make the most of my situation. While everyone my age had experience with dating, there I was bright eyed, full of wonder and without a clue.
Thankfully I had mentor, that I actually called my “Big Brother”, but he actually mentored me through my dating journey. He understood my story as his was very similar and he made sure I avoided the pitfalls that he had to walk through and guided me through many sticky dating situations. Surprisingly I not only enjoyed my time dating, but I absolutely loved it. I was having the time of my life. I couldn’t understand why anyone would ever, and I mean ever, stay in and watch movies.
The thrill of going out dancing, going on date after date was a never ending roller coaster of screams and intoxicating amusement, I never wanted it to end. It was as if life gave me another chance, but the truth was I gave me another chance and I wasn’t going to waste a minute. I dated as much as I possibly could and learned the ropes quick! I survived, I conquered, but most importantly I enjoyed the ride.
Are you newly single? Is dating more of a struggling challenge then it is fun? While others are out enjoying their world of singleness, do you find yourself at home frustrated and empty handed? Don’t worry about feeling like a foreigner, I was in your same exact shoes and I understand what its like to be a newly single and not have a clue as to what to do.
