Drop 'divorce' and add 're-singled'

(WFLX) - Divorce is becoming a little easier for everyone thanks to one woman. She says we have to lose the term 'divorced' and start using 're-singled'.

The mom of two is using what she learned through her own divorces to help others across the country.

"All divorce means is that you're no longer married. That's all it means," explained Lee Block. "You were single. You were married. Now, you're re-single."

Right now, Block is on hubby number three. After going through two divorces, this woman definitely has a lot of experience. She's also a divorce coach and divorce blogger for the Huffington Post. "All I heard about, all the time, was dating. 'Where do I meet people?', 'How do I find them?', 'When is the right time?', 'These online sites are terrible.', 'I don't know what to do'. And I was also in that situation myself, being divorced twice," said Block. "Being out there dating with kids is really tough."

Therefore, she came up with an idea. "It just hit me, duh, 'post-divorce dating club' where I could make a site that has all the good things that I found in online dating, takes out all the bad things that I found in online dating, add the things I know I would want to find myself and what clients have asked for, and put it together."

Block has recently soft-launched her site, Postdivorcedatingclub.com for Texas residents, and it will launch nationally in July.

She says it's way more than just an online dating Web site.

First, there's the offline portion offering "datinars" which are like dating seminars; divorce boot camps which offers quick mixing, speed dating, socials, things for kids, things with your children, without your children, and all different kinds of ways to mix and meet.

Then, there's an online portion. "I offer a lot of different experts that blog for me, that are in a directory that I've put together, that offer different seminars and webinars," said Block. "A lot of different ways to learn. And, on top of that, we offer offline match making."

So if you want to find somebody, but don't want to put your face on the Internet that service is offered, as well.

"We have attorneys. We're going to have realtors. We're going to have financial planners, so we have it covered top to bottom," said Block. "No matter what you need, you'll be able to find it on this site."

And you can do it all and protect yourself at the same time. "I offer my members background checks that they can purchase."

So, you can really feel secure and safe with the knowledge of who you're going out with.

And whether you become a member or not, she urges all re-singles to think of life like this. Block says, "They need to look at is as a re-birth instead of my life is over. Your life is just beginning."
