I am dating a man going through a divorce
Fast forward a few years, and in at least 50% of those marriages, one or both partners are going to bail on that commitment.
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.
Dating is never an easy, straightforward affair; and it probably wasn’t meant to be so either!
When you are just getting to know a person, there are many things to consider, and several lines you cannot cross.
A couple going through a divorce have likely exhausted all possibilities of making things work, and are breaking up a relationship that they once thought would last forever.With the "slow it down warning" emblazoned on the relationship, let's look at the possible pitfalls your man presents.The first question that must be answered is: Why is he getting a divorce and what is the timeline?It could also be he is going through a rough time and doesn't want to be dissing on you. It also may be that he wants to be sure about all his feelings and needs space. The vacation went well so I was confused and upset by his actions. If you can be there for him, without causing yourself pain, you may find a friendship grows that he relies on. I am trying to keep it together at work but it is challenging. I received a text from him today telling me not to be sad because I will meet my "prince charming on my next holiday" (which is the end of March).After reading a few comments by others on dating men going through a divorce I feel better about my situation and understand that it may have nothing to do with me and he is the one that needs to work on his healing. Sometimes with enough distance though, tis possible a former rebound he could transition after the single period. Nothing draws a circle around you writes rebound only. But yes, the seperation anxiety is going to kick in for sure and this is the point at which you do cry a lot and do pamper yourself a lot and time will settle his confusion, time will settle your intense pain. Well he did tell me that he does not want to be in a relationship until he feels like he has healed. Who knows what can happen once his heart is in a better place. I really miss my boyfriend and it's tough to think that all the plans for the future will never happen. We have spoken once on the phone and had minimal contact by texting. The fact that he is open to seeing you is a good sign. On that note, you need to move forward as well and do everything you can to take care of yourself and your feelings. When, and if, the time you guys are meant to be with each other, when he is ready and you are as well...you will be. Well I am trying to move past the fact that the relationship is over and he has decided that I should move on to another guy so quickly.
