How to date after Separation or Divorce: Guest Blog from admin's blog

Have you just gone through a divorce or separation? Our latest guest blog comes from Divorce Lawyer, Mena Ruparel on dating after separation.

In my job as a divorce lawyer, I meet a lot of people who have started dating someone new, even though they aren’t divorced yet. Most of the time my clients are too shy to mention to me that they are dating. However, I usually get to see their financial details at some point or another and I notice that they are paying subscriptions to dating websites.

In a survey released this week, Aviva have found out that the average person getting divorced spends £1,227 per annum on dating. This isn’t surprising to me at all, particularly when compared to the other costs that go hand in hand with building a new life as a single person. The same survey states that £1,483 is spent on new clothes and a further £1,853 on life coaching or therapy. In my view, these costs go hand in hand to build a new, possibly happier, life after divorce. Bearing in mind that legal costs to draw a line under the old relationship are stated to be £1,280, the cost of finding a new relationship seem to be a better investment!

In the Daily Mail, a divorcee spent every penny of her savings on a “Divorce makeover”. She says that she has no regrets at spending £65,000 re-inventing herself. Her costs included a (very reasonable) online dating subscription at £20 per month! As is the case with many new singles, she was also paying babysitters to look after her children, sharing the cost of meals on dates and the cost of pre date hair and make-up. She has no regrets about the money she spent on her makeover.
