Dating After Divorce Is Just Like Dating As A Teenager (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Huffpost Blogger Emma Johnson stopped by HuffPost Live on Tuesday to dish what it's really like to date after divorce.

Expanding on a blog post she wrote for Huffington Post Divorce earlier this month, Johnson compared the experience of dating as a single mom to dating as a teenager.

"Once you get out into the world after a divorce, after a long-term marriage or relationship, you can find yourself in a situation that can feel and behave very similarly to the last time you were dating, when you were a teenager, or in your 20s," she said. "You can find yourself sneaking around because no one has a free bed, maybe fooling around in cars."

Johnson also said that the rush of new feelings that come with dating are reminiscent of her teen years as well.

"If you remember when you were a teenager and everything was kind of scary and thrilling and exciting and horrifying all at the same time," she said. "The feelings are the same."
