Dating recently divorced man children
My dilemma is that I really like the person I’m dating, but I recently met someone else who interests me.I don’t want to break off a good relationship to go on a date with the new person, only to find that we don’t have much in common.Be aware of when the divorce happened There’s a difference between being separated for a few months and being divorced for several years. If you’re finding he is talking a lot about his ex-wife or his marriage, he may need more time to move on before starting a new relationship.Be prepared for meeting the ex When two people have children together, they nearly always have to remain in each other’s lives.So to answer your question, what you do is have a long overdue talk about where the two of you are in this relationship, and explain that you don’t want to be exclusive.But in larger terms, I hope you’ve explored, or are exploring, what went wrong in your marriage and what your contributions were to its lousiness.So bear in mind that your date’s ex-wife will be in the picture while you are dating him.
Try not to let this bother you; everyone has memories which represent a different time of life.
Over time, one of those became more serious, to the point where we have been dating for almost a year and are now essentially exclusive. I want to focus on my young kids and prefer to separate my “kid time,” which I love, from my adult “dating time,” which is also great.
I envision that for the rest of my life there may be a series of girlfriends.
That is, when the new relationship is solid and continuing.
When you first became single again, you thought you would happily juggle your many options.
Instead you found that by nature you’re less interested in variety than in harmony.
