Today, after I finally got up the courage to open myself up to someone new after going through a brutal divorce, it was going great until he went back to his ex. FML

OP, Dating is both exciting and emotionally risky. Congratulations on opening yourself back up to the possibility of romance after a divorce. That’s not easy. There is a truth to those corny old expressions that emphasize that opening your heart up enables you to feel love. But there are also risks in doing that. All I can say is that the potential rewards are worth the risk, but take it slow and easy in any new relationship. Some people have baggage from prior relationships they are not yet over, some people are dishonest, but there are some gems out there who are honest, loyal, and loving. Take it one step at a time.

Stories of divorce can have the effect of driving people back into the arms of crappy mates thinking it's less excruciating than the legal process.
