Online Divorce Forms


Online divorce service MyDivorcePapers.com (MDP) realizes that many of its clients will try their hand at the dating world soon after finalizing their papers. While this may or may not be a good idea depending on the person, the company has put together a new tip sheet showing ways that anyone can “date smarter.” Here’s what they recommend.

Tip One: Know your type.

MDP points out that many people date a certain “type” of person. After a divorce, it’s not a bad idea to sit down and go through all the serious relationships that one had in their lives, the company notes. “First, try to find the commonalities,” a rep stated. “From there, you’ll be able to branch that off into positives and negatives.”

Tip Two: Accentuating the positive.

MDP knows that it can be difficult finding positives with your ex when the divorce papers are still pending, but it’s important that one understands why they were attracted to that person in the first place as well as what made the marriage work for as long as it did. “You were in love once. Try to remember why you were,” the rep explains.

Tip Three: Don’t forget the negatives.

MDP believes that it’s important for someone hoping to “date smarter” to know what the positives were in past relationships so they can have some starting point in being able to tell where the marriage or relationship went bad. “If you know why you loved someone, or thought you loved them, then it only stands to reason that the negatives will show themselves out of that. It’s yin and yang, really,” the rep stated.

Tip Four: Be aware.

MDP urges individuals reentering the dating scene to be aware of how their dates relate to or differ from past significant others. “It’s not about holding the new person accountable for sins of past spouses or significant others,” the rep clarified. “It’s about being aware of any red flags. If you knew where the past relationship went south, then you’ll be able to recognize similar red flags should they arise.”

Tip Five: Break the cycle.

Attraction is not all that one needs to have a successful relationship, MDP points out. The problem, states a rep, is that too many people wait to see if they’re attracted and “that’s it.”

“They quit looking for red flags once they discover they’re attracted to someone and before they know it, they’re in another bad relationship eerily similar to their old one. It’s important to break the cycle and realize there is more to a relationship than the physical.”
