Sure, some of these guys’ divorces aren’t that complicated and they’re emotionally ready to move on, but most aren’t.
And when dating is already so difficult, it’s truly a shame to let the possibility of good ones go!
From time to time I will check out Evan Marc Katz’s site to see what sort of dating-related questions he gets (and the resulting comments).
Anyone who’s ever gone through a divorce, or knows someone who has, knows just how emotionally and legally messy it can be.
And, “separated” can mean many things: Any woman dating a separated or divorcing man is taking a risk.
Yesterday’s was from a man who is legally separated (and will be for 3 years) and wonders if he’s screwed from a dating perspective.
Since I am the expert on this topic and the author of “Separated” is a Red Flag Yes, the word “separated” will scare women.
Don’t get upset when she’s around (whether physically or in his thoughts).
Just remind yourself that she is part of his reality that you can’t change.
Being around his kids can be a plus when it gives you the chance to experience what life with children is like – without having to have them yourself!
If you already have kids, this can provide a great way to bond with him – the children are something you have in common.
You’ll need a lot of patience and will-power to overcome the drawbacks of dating a divorcee.
