What to expect when dating a newly divorced man

I think he wants that too, but I don’t know if 4 months is too early to expect that of him because he needs to move slower than a childless man.

So, is that timeline trajectory applicable to dating a single father or should it be tweaked? He shares intimate details of his life, he’s a great communicator and makes me feel really cared for.

If you already have kids, this can provide a great way to bond with him – the children are something you have in common.

When we are together things are easy and fun, just as they should be!

He is great at communicating his feelings to me, and although we’ve never had the “relationship talk” I’ve never felt the need to have it because he shows all the signs of a great boyfriend.

Your initial reaction to the idea of dating a divorced man might simply be – No thanks! The advantage of dating someone who has already been “down-the-aisle” is that in many aspects of our lives – we make mistakes, learn from them and try NOT to repeat them in the future.

It may be extremely difficult for him to learn to trust again. In most cases, his ex-wife is someone who will – in some way, shape or form! Whether they share kids, he pays her alimony or simply because she was a large part of his life…you have to accept the fact she is likely to show up from time-to-time.
