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.
