Dating is never an easy, straightforward affair; and it probably wasn’t meant to be so either!
When you are just getting to know a person, there are many things to consider, and several lines you cannot cross.
And if you thought dating a single, uncommitted man was tough, wait till you date a divorced person!
Since they’ve probably been separated a while, they’re craving for some company and intimacy, but at the same time, being in such a vulnerable situation scares them.
This can lead to some oscillating between two extremes, which, in all likelihood, will drive you nuts!
The kids are already devastated that their parents are splitting up, it’s killing them to choose one parent and they’re still harboring hope in some corner of their hearts that their parents may still get back together.
When a brand new person walks into this, it dashes even that tiny ray of hope and you can imagine how they feel towards said person.
Kids change the equation completely and require much more effort, so if you’re not up to it, let it go from the very beginning! For starters, let’s look at what you need to know when dating a childless individual going through a divorce. The last thing they need is you nagging them; they already had more than enough with their (almost) ex-spouse! Expect a (temporary) pall of gloom Going through a divorce isn’t a walk in the park; and if the ex is like those vengeful psychos you see onscreen, then it’s certainly a walk through hell!
