Query: I’m looking to speak to a relationship expert for a piece about dating while you’re going through a divorce. Here’s what I’m hoping to find out:

  1. If you’re already separated from your partner and have begun divorce proceedings, how do you know when you’re ready to date?
  2. When should you disclose your separation/divorce status to people you’re dating? Should you list this on dating profiles? Why/why not?
  3. What advice would you give someone who is dating while going through a divorce? Are there any legal issues you need to consider?
  4. On the other side of the equation, if you’re currently dating (or considering dating) someone who is going through a divorce, what are a few things to keep in mind? What are some warning signs/red flags to watch out for?

Requirements: Relationship experts, therapists, psychologists, counselors, mental health professionals, or similar.
