Dating a man that is going through a divorce
I spent many years being a transition person to a man I loved very much who was going through a divorce. The distraction of the legal issues, if going through a divorce, may linger on for longer than anyone would expect. In order to enjoy your time in your new relationship, it’s important to communicate these issues when you first start dating. Maybe Is every transition person only there for the time being?
He said I was “the one.” He said he never felt this way about a woman before. Once you know you have met someone you would seriously like to be involved with, express your concerns if you think this scenario might apply to you. Is it possible to be the transition person and actually be lucky enough to meet someone quickly after a death or divorce of your loved one?
We go into relationships with the best of intentions. But it can also be hurtful to the one who ends up being the transition person. I’m just suggesting that you understand their needs now may differ from their needs down the road.
I am deeply sadened and feel I've done something to cause him to want to end this relationship. I would think he is going through reality phase of a very difficult time. Lovingly give him his space and let him work his man thing out. We have hardly spoken since returning from a vacation that ended with him cancelling our valentines plans. For example, if he needs someone to talk to, he may just turn to you again. Well it has been a week since my relationship ended and I am still crying.Any stalling, or worse, attempts at reconciliation are red lights for you to put a stop to seeing him until he is officially, legally single. If so, that tells you that he is willing to work on disagreements as well as letting you know that the divorce was not a rash decision.
