Dating during divorce separation
He may feel inadequate or insecure, despite really wanting to put himself out there again.Don’t play games with his heart or give him a hard time as he adjusts to dating again.Understand he has a past that may resurface, but his previous marriage does not have to bring up insecurities in you.Understand that dating him will mean he will have to prioritize being a dad and being there for his children, affecting the amount of time he is available to spend with you.The fact that he has been married before shows he is not a complete commitment-phobe, so instead of being intimidated by his ex or previous marriage, view his past in a positive light and as a signal he is comfortable with settling down.
Also, be careful with assuming just because he has been married before, he is open to being married again.
If you’re truly open to dating a divorced man, you must also accept that his ex will remain a part of his life.
Trying to erase her or ignore her existence will only cause resentment and dissatisfaction in your relationship.
While the length of time he has been single is important to his readiness, it is not everything.
He may grapple with his worthiness and deservingness of having love in his life again.
