Dating someone who is newly separated
But, most likely, because he’s still emotionally reeling from the death of his relationship. It’s not that he didn’t care about her; it’s that he wasn’t ready for another commitment so soon after declaring his bachelorhood….
In a few short hours, I’d gone from thinking my romantic opportunities were over to realizing that a new part of my life was just beginning. Although, let’s be honest, I looked at my cell phone every three seconds the next day.The two of us would end up talking for the next two hours!What was funny about the whole night was, it never occurred to me that he was interested in me.He did call and we ended up dating for a few months.

Dear Sara, We all make judgments based on our own experience.
When I was recently separated, I was sitting around one night and I got a call from a friend of mine, asking me to meet her, her husband and “some of his work buddies” at a local bar. I walked out the door in a pair of jeans that I probably couldn’t get one leg into today, and a sleeveless top that showed off my slim (at the time) arms.
My kids were on vacation with my ex, so I had no child care issues. When I walked into the bar, my friend came rushing over to me.
Currently, I am using online dating to meet new prospects, though I choose not to date anyone who is going through divorce.
I am divorced and have been for two years and am of the opinion that there is too much other stuff going on in one’s life during a divorce to date, as well.
It didn’t matter how skinny I was, I was the big 4-1.
