By completely letting go and trusting the universe and jumping into intimacy with a man again I found my heart. And finally I realized that I could be with a man and, furthermore, consider having a future with someone other than Mark. If you find yourself stuck in the same routine every day, a date night can be something you will look forward to all week. You will never regret the time you put in planning a creative date instead of watching the next episode of a show you watch too much. There were no butterflies.
So, while my first attempt at a relationship after my husband did not end up as I had wanted, it was an experience that greatly furthered my healing and growth. That one look instilled in me a sense of freedom. Date to Door was created to make relationships and marriages better. It was the shock of a lifetime.
Over the next few weeks I began to consider the idea of dating. By opening up to each other on dates, spouses build strong bonds that solidify their commitment to each other.
Follow your heart, regardless if other people gossip about you. Either way, date nights will make your future, and your past, better.

My wife Michelle and I created Date to Door as a way to help strengthen marriages by planning creative dates and sending spouses all of the ingredients they need for the date in one box.

My options for meeting men were pretty limited. As I scanned through the results not many of the profiles interested me. But it was the right decision.
When getting divorced, make a list of the reasons why you made that decision to refer to later. Try not to compare your date to your spouse, either. In setting boundaries in my love life, I genuinely found myself. After all this, then make the decision to stay with your ex or leave him or her.
