As a dating coach/expert, what do you think of the idea of dating someone who is still in the process of divorce?Do you advise your clients to take the date or run as quick as possible? He was also recently separated, had a son, and came with some baggage. He would go to work in the morning, while I languidly pulled myself from sleep and into my home office. One thing is true, though: he was way more to me than just a married man.As expected, women initiating divorce ultimately identify their spouse as the “true” initiator.The irony is that men, despite their own dissatisfaction are more likely to resist divorce.Any advice would be wonderful- thanks in advance for your response!
We started talking, then texting, and he told me straight-up that he'd been separated for six months. I would text him something funny to start off the day, and we would spend the majority of the day talking about what made each other tick. We shared the little things, the childhood things, the adult things, the big things.
No matter how enlightened we are as a culture, it is still uncommon for men to be the primary caregivers, and women the financial provider.
Despite the security and sense of identity traditional marriages provide, they enable men to neglect the particular areas of personal growth that separation and divorce forced them to face.
Currently, I am using online dating to meet new prospects, though I choose not to date anyone who is going through divorce.
I am divorced and have been for two years and am of the opinion that there is too much other stuff going on in one’s life during a divorce to date, as well.
But much of this too is to avoid the complex array of losses and challenges divorce presents a man.
