Dating a man while he is going through a divorce
Most men know to avoid talking about past relationships on a date – divorce is no exception.A divorced man should keep his mentions of the ex to a bare minimum, such as “my ex and I share custody of our son.” If he doesn’t, it may be time to move on.
It doesn’t matter if his comments are critical, complimentary, or just factual. A man who talks about his ex may only be grieving his marriage, but it’s also possible he’s grieving the ex herself (which means there’s no room for YOU).
A woman who is dating and going through a divorce at the same time is dealing with two potentially complicated relationships, where one is ending and one is just beginning.
Dating such a woman will require some patience as she sorts out her feelings about the end of her marriage.
If you understand the many issues she may be struggling with, you may find that as time goes along, things in her life may simplify greatly and she will sort out her feelings about her ex-husband.
Because a divorcing woman may have children, any new man will have to be aware that the kids may be very confused about their mom seeing someone else and not know exactly how to feel about you.
