Dating a man going through a divorce


When it comes to seriously dating a nearly divorced man, there is frequently a third person in your relationship – his not-quite-ex-wife.It feels like he’s the one for you but the strong emotions he feels for his wife are a challenge. She was a bitch, yet he seems to be grieving the loss of HER.How can you combat your feelings of insecurity and work through this challenging time?If you’re involved with someone who’s going through a divorce (or will be), you need to be ready for the roller coaster ride.It takes having a strong sense of yourself and your worth, having a very effective support system in place, and a sense of humor really helps a lot.And being able to be empathetic and compassionate toward both of you is key. It basically describes what we’re all striving to be in our lives, and that’s WITHOUT the added trigger of your man being a nut as he goes through his divorce, and the anxiety you feel about whether or not this will all work out in your favor!



Even those people who are completely clear and convinced they’re doing the right thing in ending the marriage can hit a very painful phase, particularly as the reality of the divorce hits them.They can feel such things as regret, fear, guilt (magnified 1,000 times if there are kids involved), a sense of failure, sadness, anger, jealousy over a new lover in their mate’s life, or more.NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART Dating a man while he goes through a divorce isn’t something just anyone could do.It’s one of the reasons that for years now, my advice to women has been: don’t date a man unless he’s been legally divorced a year, and until he’s already had one transitional relationship.

Sure, there are successful relationships out there that started off with one partner legally still in a marriage, but the odds are not greatly in favor of that outcome. It’s just that you’ve got your work cut out for you.

And, an important piece here, this advice today is based on the fact that you’ve done your work to know that this man fits your requirements and your vision.
