Dating a separated man problems

Be patient with him throughout the process and lend him an ear.

Going through a divorce is a traumatic time emotionally.

He could still be mourning the end of the marriage even though he’s dating.

Sometimes people use others to help them get over that loss, which we call a rebound.

Does he seem emotionally available or over her completely?

Just because a man is over his ex doesn’t mean he’s ready to be in a committed relationship again.

When I asked a mutual friend if Roslyn was dating, she informed me that although Roslyn had gone on a date or two here and there, she was just not ready. As a woman who has had the experience of dating two different men who were going through a divorce, I can unequivocally say that I’ll never date a married but separated man again.

If you have any doubts or feel that he’s just using you to get over his ex, then don’t do it.

Ladies, if you’re not sure if you’re just a rebound helping him to transition from marriage to single-hood, then avoid dating men who are separated and not divorced. There should be no pressure on him to define your relationship, divulge if he’s ready to get married again or even if he sees a future with you.

Chances are he’s still reeling from the shock of his failed marriage to even begin to think about the possibility of going down that road again. But like all relationships that you might hope turn into a long-term commitment, take your time getting to know him.

If you’re unsure, it’s best to wait until he’s free, for real.

And if he’s the one, he’ll come looking for you when the ink is dry.
