Dating a man who is separated from his wife
We haven't touched or talked about getting back together since well before he moved out.
I dated someone separated and that didn't work out. This guy got divorced while we were dating, but he had a lot of issues.
I was easy prey b/c my ex was so horrible to me..anybody with a smile and some compliments seemed like a prize.
I was in counseling and had zero sexual feelings for my ex.
So it all really depends on his situation and emotional state.
I'm currently dating a man of 48 , we've been dating for nearly 2 years, the 1st year was wonderful, meeting his daughters, getting to know them, ( one has just entered college and the other is soon to be 13), the holidays were very nice.
I'd been separated and filed papers 18 months prior.
According to my lawyer longest "simple" divorce ever!
Am I wrong to feel, we should be starting our own traditions with out her, We can be a team for the the child still at home, but shouldn;t she be starting her own life, and should I be his best friend, Hum?I am not saying that it's always a good relationship -- but they tend to jump in fast. If you know you're moving out of the area in 6 months and want to have some casual fun, then fine. The fact that I was only separated was a deal-breaker for some women. I started dating my DW before the divorce was finalized, and my being separated wasn't an issue for her.Stay cynical until he is really divorced, but separated men are not always bad men. If you're just dating and not looking for any commitment any time in the near future, then fine. She understood where I was emotionally regarding my previous marriage, and the I was sufficiently over that relationship to date her. This is a long way of saying it can work, and you should evaluate the guy based on his circumstances. I would have been more wary if he'd been separated less than a year or so. For the life of me, I cannot understand why separated and divorced people are in such a hurry to date. We're still in touch..we'll see what happens when he's in a more stable place but he definitely needs some time to mourn, move on.
