Dating after 40, Worth it Or Not

After I divorced, I didn’t even want to think about the possibility of a relationship for a while. Divorces can be a lot to handle and often they are worse than the reasons you decided to get one in the first place. For me, I needed to heal from the emotional journey of an unhappy relationship filled with a bunch of problematic years full gaslighting, passive aggression, and narcissistic behaviors that made me finally call it quits.
