Dealing with dating a divorced man
I have pushed guys away in the past and have tried very hard this time to be more aware of my actions.” Dear Hanging, First off, this situation is exactly why I encourage women to avoid dating men who are not divorced for at least a year and I would tell men the same thing.
Before you enter the next dating situation, ask the man how long he’s been divorced and if it’s less than 9 months to a year, walk away!
There are a number of things you mentioned that puzzle me about this liaison.
I wonder why you’re interested in dating this man after: As a dating coach for women, I say any of these is reason enough not to see him again!
I was fine with that but, heard nothing for a few days so naturally I was a little anxious when he eventually text me.
He said things were really bad between then and then had loads to sort out.
There are some important situations to watch out for when the guy is not divorced yet.
Having had a relationship, a wedding and a shared home will have given them a chance to find out who they are and what is important to them.
This experience is invaluable when forming a new relationship. Open-mindedness – often a person who has been through a divorce may have a complicated family life with ex in-laws, children and contact with their spouse.
I informed him that I wasn’t happy with the way things were going between us and suggested I give him some space which he agreed to.
He said he would text me when ‘his head was sorted’. I’ve had a few texts since but nothing to indicate that we are getting back together.
