A guy I was seeing who was separated—not divorced was still sleeping with his ex.
(I found out years later, but it still hurt like hell.) That said, I still feel like dating someone who is separated is no worse than dating someone who is recently divorced or for that matter, divorced.
Next day’s text “You are an amazing guy, but still being married is an issue for me”. I even skipped grad school class to go on the date.
There are many possible reasons people have issues with dating someone who is separated—not officially divorced: They think the person could end up getting back with their ex, they think the person isn’t mentally ready, they think that dating someone who isn’t officially divorced is the same thing as dating a married man.
It’s what feels right for me and I feel ready for it.The longer you are with someone, you come to learn of their extended needs; or the needs that you never knew they had.If you’re in a relationship you can simply move on to the next candidate, but if you’re married; it’s just not that simple.Therefore, make sure he is financially and professionally well settled before getting serious. This will indicate if dating a recently divorced man is right for you.Some divorced men are anxious to get back into the dating scene, and others are having mixed feelings that could cause frustration.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.
