On dating divorced
" No divorced guy wants to be asked these questions. All he knows is, he just got divorced and can only handle the present for right now. Let time pass and let him breathe and get to the future. What you have to keep in mind is that separated is still married until the divorce is finalised and that means that there’s likely to be emotional as well as legal ties.
Be the girl who takes him to cool restaurants, who suggests an interesting museum, who makes him watch one of your favorite movies he's never seen. Help him remember that relationships are fun and enriching. I was dating a divorced man with 3 children, he's 10 years older than I. But why wouldn't he want me included in ALL of his life, makes no sense. He started working a lot of overtime and started staying less nights with me. By this time it's been 6 hours, he can't still be there, right? Both unfortunate and fortunately, I pulled up at the same time I saw him and another woman walking out together. I couldn't be around the kids/family because he didn't really see us as a serious couple. The children were allowed to run wild at my house and that was perfectly acceptable to their father. I"m a mother too (was a single mom) and know that letting your kids rule the roost is no way to run a household. I'm here to tell you, I wasted 8 months of my life on this man. He had never felt so in love in his life, like we were meant to be. However, I was unhappy with the fact that I couldn't have anything to do with his children and when I brought the subject up, I never really got a reason on why. Suddenly I had this overwhelming, heart-wrenching feeling to go to that bar. I'd love to help women bust the sorry SOB's that think they can have their cake and eat it too like they're God's gift to women. NEVER EVER get involved with a man who has a "previously enjoyed" family. I bought a house so he could be "closer to his kids" and the second we did the ex wife got even more restrictive with the children.I’ve had some real life experiences regarding this topic and I've learned somehow to navigate my way through the circumstances.Now I have the privilege of sharing a bit of what I’ve learned on this blog. You might also know that my first marriage didn't quite work out as I'd hoped.
