Since I’m not using my OK Cupid profile anymore, I figured I’d recycle it here to serve as my “About Me” bio, so you can get to know me a bit better. After all, that’s where we tell the gospel truth so that people will like us, right?
See, don’t you want to know me better now?
Okay, okay. Here’s the real about me section…
My name is Hanssie. At 38 years old, I never thought I would be where I am today. It sounds cliche but alas, life takes us on journeys we would never have imagined for ourselves. As a young girl, I thought I would grow up to be a killer whale trainer at Sea World, happily married with 2.5 kids, a dog,, and a white picket fence. And though I was on the road to make most of that happen (minus the killer whale part), I found myself alone, a single mom, hating my job and my life and having no clue how I got there.
Five years later, I am happier than I’ve ever been, content, and free. I used to think divorce was the worst thing that could ever happen to me, but looking back, I now know it has made me who I am today. The posts you read in this blog is a real and raw look at my life and my experience post-divorce. Starting with my divorce announcement post to my online dating adventures and now to advice giving, my mission now is to help women create a life they love after divorce.
This is my journey. I hope reading my story helps you a little bit with yours.
(And I still am not a fan of cats).
