Advice dating someone separated
You deserve better than dating a separated man and this kind of dysfunctional situation.
I hope you meet men who are divorced for more than a year and healed of the trauma.
I don’t mean cancel plans, but be sure to keep some open space in your calendar.
If you can’t make a date, always suggest another time.
I said I wasn’t happy with how things were going between us and suggested I give him some space which he agreed to.
He said he would text me when ‘his head was sorted’. I’ve had a few texts since, but nothing to indicate that we are getting back together.
In this case, it doesn’t sound at all like you pushed him away. I think he was hoping to get her back by dating you which is sort of a crummy thing to do all the way around.
What is it about him that makes him worth compromising your sense of self-worth and your time or affection? He is a package deal and you need to see him as a whole – the good and the bad.(Same thing goes for women too.) Before you enter the next dating situation, be sure to ask the man how long he’s been divorced. There are a number of things you mentioned that puzzle me about this liaison.I wonder why you’re interested in dating this man after…When this man said to you he had to “sort things out,” that was Man Speak for “I can’t see you any more.” You hung around wondering how long it would take.He said he hoped you would understand, but you missed his meaning. Next time a man says he’s got to sort stuff out, say GOODBYE because that’s exactly what he means.
