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”.During the next 30 days is he going to all of a sudden become ready to date? Over his divorce just because he will have a piece of paper that says he is no longer married? I am not going to tell him I think he should lie on his profile and tell women he is divorced. Divorced Guy Grinning is a blog for men facing divorce and dating after divorce.It's kind of like hanging out with your platonic female divorced friend and hearing her perspective on your divorce and your love life issues.The thing is, every divorce story is different, every situation unique.I think that people later in life make commitments of the heart, and whether or not they are monogamous has nothing to do with a divorce decree.Next day’s text “You are an amazing guy, but still being married is an issue for me”. I even skipped grad school class to go on the date.There are many possible reasons people have issues with dating someone who is separated—not officially divorced: They think the person could end up getting back with their ex, they think the person isn’t mentally ready, they think that dating someone who isn’t officially divorced is the same thing as dating a married man.
And that's despite the fact that you're working two jobs already, and he may be working two jobs of his own. The neighbors like him, too, and he and his ex seem very friendly.
Another says “I see you’re separated…I’m looking for a serious relationship”.
I also went on a date with a really cool girl and had a great time.
Another captured my heart (and still holds it, most tenderly).
And one remains a trusted friend to this day (and I'm glad).
