Am dating man going through divorce
For the first guy, I think he should stay in touch with the online woman he felt connected to, and maybe send her a link to this article!In the meantime, he should just be himself, be upfront with the women he meets that he isn’t divorced yet, and keep dating. For the 27 year-old, besides being very impressed with her maturity, I think she is being extremely thoughtful.
Additionally, she is a Huffington Post contributor.
A divorce decree does not mean someone is ready to date, and not having a divorce decree yet does not mean someone isn’t ready to date.
My specific advice for my two readers (above) is: 1.
They are flexible with some of the criteria/qualities, such as, “I really want him to be over 6 feet, but if he isn’t I might be OK with it,” but other things are 100% musts. One of these musts/deal breakers for a lot of people is, “He/she MUST be officially divorced.” Maybe they fear that the person hasn’t grieved the divorce, or hasn’t been alone long enough, or maybe they think there’s still a chance he/she might get back together with the ex.
Or, maybe they think think he’s just covering up his pain with a Band-aid, the Band-aid being a new girlfriend.
