Michelle Madrigal Admits to Dating Again After Divorce

In a vlog, former actress, mother of one, and content creator Michelle Madrigal admitted that she is dating again.

Former actress and mother of one Michelle Madrigal recently answered some questions, where she admitted to dating again after her divorce from ex-husband Troy Woollfork. In a vlog posted on August 20, Michelle, who now works as a fitness instructor answered whether or not she has a new relationship.

“I recently posted someone and I started dating,” she said. “I was casually dating before but I never posted anybody because I was not yet emotionally available. And I was just trying to see what dating felt like again. Because you don’t know what you’re doing after being married and being a parent.”

“But yes, I started seeing someone recently and I think we’re in a very good place,” she added, saying that she does not want to put any labels. She also mentioned that they both understand each other with the guy divorced and having his own child as well.

On August 22, she shared a photo with the caption, “Him,” accompanied by a smiling emoji. Troy, her former husband, even wrote: “Cute couple.”

Michelle Madrigal and the lessons she learned after the divorce

Michelle reiterated that there was no third party in her previous marriage. She and Troy just weren’t compatible anymore. “Even before the divorce, I was already emotionally disconnected. I didn’t have any emotional attachment, so it’s different. Walang third party. We were just incompatible. Hindi na kami match,” she said.

She advised those going through a breakup to concentrate on themselves first. While some go through a rebound stage, it may not work at all. “You can have all the rebound in the world, numb the pain from your previous relationship, and just start dating again. But then, you’ll never fix the actual issues that you may have.”

“You have to heal and you have to process in order for you to become a better person after this. Just take it one day at a time. I feel like a breakup should teach you a lesson.”
