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).One woman proceeded to tell me “recently divorced people are somewhat unstable emotionally”.Regarding this guy’s situation specifically, I feel for him. In the meantime, he should keep doing what he’s doing: going to school, working hard and raising his kids.He is going to be officially divorced in September, so what is the difference in one month? He will turn out fine, and when his divorce is final, he will probably get more dates, which seems a little silly to me (that the women care so much) but it is what it is, right?Like any other matter of the heart, your gut is your best tool to use when trying to decide if dating someone who is separated is worth it.
This can take months, if not years, with lawyers are the only ones tying the two people together.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. Read this email I received from a reader who is having problems in online dating because he is separated–not officially divorced.Dating someone in that circumstance might not be risky, but love is a risk no matter what.However, even if you play out many different scenarios in your head, you still will not be fully informed on your situation and how you should proceed.
