Are you ready to date after divorce?

We are CEOs of Fortune 500 companies but still can’t figure out the dating game. Have you had a date lately? Don’t use COVID-19 as an excuse as to why the only text messages you’re receiving are from your BFF. Dating after 40 has its challenges, especially if you’re divorced with children, trying to maintain a co-parenting relationship with your ex and handling your business all at the same time. You’re exhausted and not in the mood for a man’s BS. Sound familiar?

Yes, I’d invested quite a bit of time in failed marriages and having children, but seriously, it was as if I woke up and — poof! — I was 40.

Dating is a crapshoot. You’d think that the older you get, the wiser you become, but that isn’t always the case. To have a chance in hell of successful dating, there are things to consider when you’re ready to dive into the deep end of the pool.
