Dating a man with kids separated
They still live together (sleeping in separate rooms).
His wife knows all about me, but he went away with her to see her family (a “goodbye” type of situation) during my birthday weekend.
Love is what happens AFTER this obsession goes away.
Love is what happens AFTER the smoke has cleared and you can assess your relationship properly. For all I know, you are wonderful together – true star-crossed lovers, that, in different circumstances, may have a chance. Objectively, you chose a man who is both physically and emotionally unavailable to you – and while he is in no rush to get married again, you’re putting your entire life on hold for him.
I don’t want to lose him because I truly believe he is the love of my life. I’ve never received an email from a happily coupled up woman asking me for advice on her non-existent problems.
And I know parting ways right now was the right thing to do. So here’s what we DO know: • You chose to date a separated man who still lives with his wife.
• Either because of the circumstances or because of your natural disposition, you acted anxious and needy.
People often wonder about dating someone who is separated—not officially divorced. I have been separated for over a year, with young kids I have half the time.
There’s no love there though, we’ve clearly moved on. I have my stuff together…own my own place, pursuing an MBA, good job, do the best for my kids, and I’m in a good place right now.
I’m not looking to rush back into a marriage, but I’m looking to date with an intent on finding a relationship.
I don’t have a wide network of people where I live, so I’m online.
What I’ve noticed is that no woman seems to want to touch me with a 10 foot pole because I’m ‘separated.’ My divorce is pending and will be finalized in September (it’s written better in the profile).
• You’re not even his girlfriend, yet you think you have the right to tell him what to do with his marriage, separation and divorce.
