Dating someone recently separated
You have no idea the truth, you have no idea of their marriage dynamics, and you shouldn’t be in the midst of it. If you find out your guy is in this situation, tell him to call you back when his marriage is OVER. I didn’t start dating in earnest for seven months post-split and when I did, there was zero chance of any reconciliation ever. If you find yourself post-split and are ready to start dating, you need to think very clearly about your motives. You must focus on you, your children, your divorce proceedings, and your life first. When I met my ex-husband, Rob, he had recently separated from his wife.In my defense, he lied to me about their official separation date.Their marriage hasn’t ended yet and you have no right whatsoever to insert yourself into the middle of their relationship even if he is inviting you to do so.Let the two of them muddle through the end of their relationship without your input, distraction, or presence. He may be telling you that their marriage has been dead for years, that she is evil and psychotic and crazy, that he was ready to move on for years, that they never had sex anymore, blah blah blah.
He is one damaged guy and why is he jumping back into another relationship? You are enabling him to continue hiding and ignoring and deflecting.
When it comes to the destruction of a family, keeping things as simple as possible is essential.
Emotions are running high, there is so much raw pain, and untold confusion, trauma and turmoil going on.
They had filed for divorce several months prior but continued living in the same home until just weeks before we met. The problem with dating a recently separated guy are numerous. If you believe that it’s ok to date a married guy, then you can stop reading right here.
Because if you’re morally and ethically ok with that, then you date really horrible men and you deserve the men you date. And when your guy cheats on you and makes your life hell, you deserve it.
Being in such a volatile and unhealthy relationship had really taken a toll on how I felt about myself. Hello 40’s: This might apply to any woman, married or divorced, but it’s hard to ignore the number 40.
