3 Tips For Dating After Divorce

Dating after a divorce

With Pat and Gina Neely announcing that they’re getting a divorce after 20 years together and Nick Cannon’s marriage to Mariah Carey on the rocks, it seems as though everyone is splitting up these days. Perhaps one of the scariest parts about filing for divorce is getting back into the dating game.
