Dating a woman getting divorced
Julie, 50, from Denver, thought she'd be able to handle her divorce.
"I'm a strong person, I own my own business and I'm a professional speaker," she says.
Here, real women share what they wish they'd known when they split from their husbands and divorce professionals weigh in on how to combat the most unexpected, yet most common, mistakes they've seen clients make.
Rest assured, these 10 lessons can get you through the end of your marriage, both financially and emotionally. It may take a long time to recover—and that's okay.
After all, you are entitled to find your happiness, and in no event should you ever compromise in that department.
Considering that this guy is out fresh from his divorce, his ex-wife may consistently figure in his conversations, or she may be omitted completely.
Things could complicate further if there are children involved.
This guy possibly has his hands full with all of these, which could distract him from focusing on your relationship.
The best thing to do then, is to give him time and space to clear his mind, and probably focus on being friends.
He may be in a phase where he just wants to vent out his resentment towards relationships or wants to enjoy his new-found freedom.
In both cases, you need to steer clear of being the unfortunate victim of his circumstances.
Your man may prioritize re-stabilizing his accounts over your nurturing relationship, and there is a possibility of you being left in the lurch. Since this man has just gotten out of a serious relationship, he may want to play the field or (re)sow some wild oats.
This isn't exactly good news if you're looking for something on the lines of long-term.
Watch out for these signs, and bolt at their earliest appearance.
