Dating woman going through divorce
I have a child with my ex and it's a very amicable situation.Anyway, we started dating once she was separated and it was absolutely wonderful and blissful.My girlfriend, who is 39 with 3 children, has finally just come to a settlement with her soon to be ex and seems to be so confused about her emotions right now.She needs space to process a lot of these emotions surrounding the finality of it all and that blindsided her.I understand that there are a lot of things to sort out, and I've continually supported that, but keeping me away seems to be such a drastic measure.Let me give a little background to our relationship and how it got to where we are today.Currently, I am using online dating to meet new prospects, though I choose not to date anyone who is going through divorce.
Do you advise your clients to take the date or run as quick as possible?
Any advice would be wonderful- thanks in advance for your response!
Dear Sara, We all make judgments based on our own experience.
I got divorced 7 years ago after being with my ex-wife for 10 years.
Since then I've had 4 semi-long-term relationship (9 months) and a few flingy hook ups here and there.
It took one phone call for him to tell me that he was in the middle of a divorce.
