Thinking About Dating a Recently Divorced or Widowed Man? Listen to This First

This week, Lisa talks about what you should look out for if you find yourself dating a recently divorced or widowed man! She explains why men tend to rely on women to help them heal after a recent trauma and what you need to know so you don’t end up their healing crutch or the stepping stone to their next relationship! Lisa also shares her advice for walking away with kindness when a man says he’s on the verge of getting a divorce, even if the chemistry and connection are there. She then answers some group questions about if/when you should contact the man first and how you can create a profile that speaks right to a man’s heart.
