Separated dating separated man
If you really are as over your ex as you say, then the way you discuss her and your marriage will indicate that. I was the one who ignored all the obvious signs he wasn’t ready.Now when I date a divorced/separated guy, I listen carefully to find out where he is emotionally.That’s the risky part of making yourself vulnerable, even though you know, full well, that 99% of relationships that get started don’t end up at the altar. Or go out of your way to find a woman who is recently separated or divorced, just like you. Just be totally upfront about where you are emotionally, and let her decide.
Sounds to me, Pat, like you’re a decent man who might not even be fully aware of what your needs are. I’ve had terrible experiences dating a separated man who wasn’t ready to date — but it wasn’t his fault (entirely).
I agreed to 3 years legal separation, so that she could get my health insurance, and then the divorce would be decreed.
