I've read several posts that folks who are caregiving do not have the energy to date, and I agree. Is it that the energy is not there to date in general, or if you met someone whom you really, really liked would you still not have the energy to go out? In other words, would you turn down a date with someone if there was a lot of chemistry? My situation is that I'm not much interested in dating anymore, and I'm not sure if it is because of the stress of caregiving, or perhaps because I'm getting older in general, or a combination. I'm just trying to think ahead, as where I live, some of the local hotels will be having holiday singles dances in a couple of months, and I'm undecided if I will go. Would you have the energy to establish a new relationship with someone while caregiving? Would like to hear any opinions/thoughts from any single/divorced caregivers regarding dating?
