The last thing you need is sugar-coated advice on "how to get over your man in 3 easy steps." I get it. No sugar coating here. Only real deal advice, forged in the fire of down and dirty life experience. I've been there more than my fair share of times. Not in a Taylor Swift sort of way, but you get the picture. After my divorce, I thought I'd never want to date again. Date was truly a four letter word in my book and the thought of online dating made me queasy.
Not that I didn't like men or sex. Fact is, I really like men and sex. I mean who doesn't want amazing sex and fabulous companionship all wrapped up in a handsome package? I just didn't know how the heck to get myself out there again. And honestly, I felt less than confident about my dating mojo. I know you can relate. No matter how a relationship ends, your confidence is shaken.
So picture this:
(Don't judge) There I was late one night in my comfiest, sex-repelling sweats, torturing myself with one of 'our' songs, tipping back the entire bottle of merlot, while watching The Notebook with the sound off and it hit me...
Sex. I really wanted to have sex that didn't require AA batteries. Not to mention I was tired of spending my free nights reliving the breakup like it was in syndication. This was the now and it was time to move forward.
OK, so this sounds shallow and cliche, but it's true. We feel good when we know we look good. And that my friend makes you one confident, sexy mama. Every woman, and I mean every woman, has a best feature. Play that up. Here are some tips:
Nike was right. Just do it. Do it just to enjoy the experience. You're not on a mission to find the love of your life. You're on a mission to love your life and make lasting connections. You will find that someone special along the way. I did. And I'm stronger and happier than ever.
