Dating After Divorce: What Post-Split Dating Is Really Like, According To Readers


What's dating after divorce really like?

We don't know about you, but we're partial to comedian Louis C.K.'s take on the highs and mostly lows of post-split dating:

"You sort of feel like you just got out of prison," C.K. told NPR in a 2010 interview. "They give you the suit you were convicted in. And they give you a paper bag with a watch and a wallet in it. And they give you eight bucks and a bus ticket and the cars are going way too fast and you can't cross the street -- and you're considering going into a motel and hanging yourself after carving your initials."

Sure, he's a bit intense, but we also totally get it. Our readers on Facebook and Twitter seem to get it, too. How do we know? Because on Monday night, we asked them to share with us their best analogies for post-divorce dating. And the majority of their answers were a little bit negative (but hilariously so).

Click through the slideshow below for some of the funniest responses, then head to the comments and tell us what you'd compare post-divorce dating to now that you've experienced it.
