Dating after divorce: It’s a topic that comes with questions, fears, excitement, and so much more. In this episode, Tamsen Fadal, primetime anchor for PIX11 News in New York and author of The New Single: Finding, Fixing, and Falling Back in Love with Yourself provides insight into emerging from major life changes with grace, confidence, and an eye toward self-care, plus a focus in increased awareness that helps women avoid repeating toxic relationship patterns that hold them back. 

When you’re newly divorced or even emerging from a major breakup, the subject of dating can be part-frightening and part-exhilarating. After going through her own divorce, Tamsen found herself searching for answers and rebuilding her personal life brick by brick. Her experiences and the questions she faced mirror those encountered by so many other women as they navigate through the process of starting all over with life and love. 

In This Episode

Tamsen and Jennifer discuss The New Single: Finding, Fixing, and Falling Back in Love with Yourself and issues surrounding dating after divorce. After her own divorce, Tamsen felt like hiding, as her previous books had been on relationship success and she felt as if she had somehow failed. As she processed her feelings though, Tamsen rediscovered her own power and built a roadmap for living her best life, which she decided to share with readers. 

This heartfelt conversation will help you discover:

Tamsen will be moderating Worthy’s live event on the topic of Dating After Divorce, which is coming up soon. In a recent survey, we found that a full 65% of women find themselves dating during the first year after their divorces and experiencing a mixture of emotions ranging from fear to hope to excitement. One of the biggest topics we’ll cover is fear with regard to dating after divorce. Tamsen explains that reframing our expectations and even changing the terminology we use can simultaneously shift the way we process the emotions surrounding meeting new people and forming new friendships.
