I wouldn’t fear being exclusive with the right person.
I don’t have a wide network of people where I live, so I’m online.
What I’ve noticed is that no woman seems to want to touch me with a 10 foot pole because I’m ‘separated.’ My divorce is pending and will be finalized in September (it’s written better in the profile).
Dating newly separated men
People often wonder about dating someone who is separated—not officially divorced. I have been separated for over a year, with young kids I have half the time.
Read this email I received from a reader who is having problems in online dating because he is separated–not officially divorced.
A woman who is dating and going through a divorce at the same time is dealing with two potentially complicated relationships, where one is ending and one is just beginning.
Dating such a woman will require some patience as she sorts out her feelings about the end of her marriage.
However, it may be an amicable separation and the divorce proceedings may be a formality free of additional stress or pressure.
And if you truly care about this woman, keep in mind that her marriage, divorce and family situation are simply part of what makes her who she is.
The thing is, every divorce story is different, every situation unique.
I think that people later in life make commitments of the heart, and whether or not they are monogamous has nothing to do with a divorce decree.
During the next 30 days is he going to all of a sudden become ready to date? Over his divorce just because he will have a piece of paper that says he is no longer married? I am not going to tell him I think he should lie on his profile and tell women he is divorced. Divorced Guy Grinning is a blog for men facing divorce and dating after divorce.
