D.R.E.A.M. (Dating Rules Everything Around Me - But Should It?)

Read Show Notes

In this, the Season One Finale, the highs and lows and straight up ridiculousness of single life begin to take their toll on Eric. The pain is REAL! Instead of being in love and being at peace, he finds himself emotionally drained, conflicted, and angry and confused as to what it is exactly he is doing when it comes to the opposite sex and maybe more importantly, what are his reasons for doing it and why. Eric decides to leave no emotional stone unturned in his search for these answers and his truth. What he realizes about himself — all the issues he unearths — run the risk of turning his life upside down again. But this time around, this may not actually be a bad thing. From his male ego to Kobe, Eric pulls no punches in this Season One ender.

About the Podcast

The Dating After Divorce Survival Guide
Datin' ain't easy — especially the second time around. Join Eric Payne, retired blogger and divorced dad, for his humorous storytelling escapades over the hills and through the valleys of dating as a divorced man in his forties.
The Dating After Divorce Survival Guide is a humorous retelling of a man's real and very unfiltered experiences with the opposite sex and himself as he navigates post-divorce life with the hopes of one day getting married again. From good to bad, to ugly to hella messy, subscribe and tag along for the ride and the laughs. It's The Odd Couple meets Insecure, except Oscar Madison and Issa are nowhere to be found.

After 15 years of being committed to one person, former marriage and fatherhood blogger (MakesMeWannaHoller.com) Eric found himself divorced and single at 43 years old. When Eric first met his wife, she gave him her telephone number on a sheet of notebook paper. In 2015, people were using the iPhone 6S, Instagram, Facebook and Tinder. In the beginning, he didn’t know what to do except drink himself to sleep. His self-esteem was in the negative numbers as he dragged himself from one day to the next, barely existing and carrying the guilt and shame of losing his family and the life he worked fifteen years to build. Meanwhile, his new ex-wife seemed to be living her best life.

Needless to say, Eric was a fish out of water, but over the course of four years he went from being a man who stood in the back corner of a room at his first social outing — a wine tasting — to one who, at one point, wasn’t satisfied unless he was out with someone different every night of the week, moving in silence like the “g” in lasagna having one escapade after another. But this wasn’t necessarily a good thing, either.

Featured guests include communications and relationship experts, sex therapists and colorful divorcees, both men and women. The Dating After Divorce Survival Guide leaves no stone unturned, covering everything from ghosting, to being on the rebound, to online dating, to what it takes to get married again.

About your host

Profile picture for Eric Payne

Eric Payne

Eric Payne got divorced in 2015. In his despair, he read no less than thirty books on relationships and divorce and listened to, and took, a ton of horrible advice. It didn’t take him long to realize that assistance for the divorced that takes into account their brokenness was missing from the relationship-help resource pool. Real help that drilled all the way down to how to get up in the morning when you’d rather disappear into thin air rather than face the day.

In November of 2019, Eric launched The Dating After Divorce Survival Guide a humor-based podcast to share his journey of falling from grace, hitting rock bottom, battling his demons and his pain, rebounding and failing, again and again and again until finally, he began to get it right. His story is for everyone.

Eric is Chicago-born, New York City-bred and a current resident of Atlanta. A writer since the second grade, and a storyteller since before even then, Eric has published two books of poetry, a parenting book, and the popular fatherhood and marriage blog, MakesMeWannaHoller.com. He is convinced superheroes are real, has no problem laughing, especially at himself, and loves being a father.
