My ex and I had a slow burn separation and divorce https://onlinedivorcer.com/online-divorce-pa. Our relationship imploded during COVID, we patched things up a bit and then she and I opened up the marriage. It was an opportunity for her to explore her sexuality which she never got to do bc we were religious high school sweethearts. We had other problems but for the last year or so I felt like the only one fighting for us.So it took one time with a woman and she said that it felt more right than we ever did. She’s also rather masc presenting and it never really bothered me, but now when we hang out it really does feel like hanging out with one of my guy friends. Her sexuality and gender expression aside, the relationship simply ran its course.Being single has been good for me! I’ve only officially been on my own since last Feb, but it’s been three years of working on myself and I’d like to meet a best friend with the potential for a romantic relationship down the line. I know that I want to go really slow, not even sure when I’ll be ready for a physical relationship again. Just curious if anyone else dated for the first time after their divorce, how did it go and is there anything you wish you had known before starting?
