Dating a newly divorced man

Many people, men and women, assume that when someone is divorced they made a lousy spouse. Just because a man is divorced doesn’t mean he’s a bad man.

As a double divorcee, I can tell you that yes, there were times I made a lousy spouse, but there were times I was the perfect wife! My mother always says, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” or, more delicately, just because he wasn’t right for one woman, doesn’t mean he isn’t perfect for you!

Were the live images of her personality even more terrifying than the ones you imagined?

Speaking of kids, it’s important not to try too hard when you meet his children.

There’s no need to bring toys and shower them with gifts and over attention. If you’re trying too hard, they’ll know you’re afraid that they will dislike you and ruin your chances with their father.

No matter how you feel about his previous squeeze, you can’t let on.

Now, I’m not saying to spare his feelings because he loved her once and blah blah blah…

You wouldn’t want him judging you based on your ex-boyfriend, would you? That usually means he’s not going to be in any rush to have it happen again.

If you’re looking for the kind of man who’s going to say “I love you” at first sight, you’re dating the wrong guy.

Still, dating a guy who’s been divorced, just like dating a woman who’s been divorced, does come with a certain amount of baggage.

It also comes with a few things you’re going to have to accept without conflict.

You’re not going to talk badly about his ex because you don’t want your relationship with him to be based on how much you both hate her!
