Dating a currently seperated man
My divorce is amicable and I maintain a good relationship with my ex.
There’s no love there though, we’ve clearly moved on. I have my stuff together…own my own place, pursuing an MBA, good job, do the best for my kids, and I’m in a good place right now.
And with that awareness you make yourself more available for long-term love with the right guy.
Raising your awareness means being clear on the facts of your relationship.
I just have his word and that of his sister (which I weight high because we're friends).
On the other hand, he is the cutest guy you can imagine.It is a process that requires time, self-awareness and hard work.And there’s a strong chance your separated man has a long way to go.If you chose to proceed in dating him, I caution you to proceed slowly and with eyes wide open. Comments like, “Bah, I just want it over,” or “Doesn’t matter, we’ve been strangers for years,” may seem casual, even confident — but they also mask what’s going on underneath and behind the scenes.When a man has truly processed his divorce and moved on, he should be able to speak to it with compassion, kindness, and wisdom.
