Benefits to Dating a Divorcee

New call-to-action

After going through a divorce, many people feel they are now "tainted" and are less desirable to the dating population. Well, I’m here to prove them wrong. In fact, dating divorcees has many benefits. What are they, you ask? 


They can say, I do.

Divorcees have proven that they can commit to another person. With all the swiping going on today, it's hard to know who is full of crap and who is truly looking for a more meaningful relationship. Those who have been previously married have shown they can do it, and are likely to want to make it work this time around.

They know children's songs.

Wondering if he/she will make a good parent? Do you have your own children? Spending quality time with a divorced dad/mom will give you a firsthand look into how he/she treats and parents his/her own children, providing real insights as to how he/she will treat yours (or any children you have together). Don't want kids? That may be just fine with many divorcees.

Sexually charged.

I would venture to say 90% of those who are divorced were void of any real sexual chemistry for quite some time. Divorcees are hungry for sex, and those who are lucky enough to date one will surely reap the benefits.


Divorce can be one of the most stressful life events a person goes through. Like a Navy Seal in training (lying in the ocean, barely able to breathe as the Staff Sergeant is yelling and berating you can be similar to appearing in front of a judge), divorcees have likely been forced to evaluate every part of their lives. But the person that comes out of the program is strong, very clear in his/her mission and thinking, and is able to make well-thought-out decisions.


Divorcees come with major experience in all departments. From life to finances, kids to relationships, a divorcee can have greater insights into the inner workings of marriage and lessen the learning curve, hopefully resulting in a more productive marriage.
