When the guy you’re dating has other responsibilities, it allows for the perfect balance to grow a healthy relationship.Because he has other obligations, he puts more emphasis on the time you do spend together.Can you imagine what a quiet apartment with no roommates sounds like? Aside from the whole divorce thing, he’s likely to have his life together (and if he doesn’t, run).He probably has a good job, since odds are, he’s been there a while. Your life may be in a constant state of crazy and your mind may usually run in 12 different directions, but his stability is refreshing and helps to keep you balanced amidst the chaos of your world.He’s put up with more BS than you have, yet he’s still ready for and open to new relationships.On top of everything else, he’s already had his heart broken in ways you can’t imagine, but this has made him more appreciative and receptive to whatever comes his way next.
The biggest mistake in new relationships is immediately going from first date to inseparable and dedicating all of your time and energy to this single person. The guy recently got out of a long term relationship (his marriage.) He doesn’t need a girlfriend that he has to call every two minutes, or that he feels obligated to go out with every Saturday night. Be the girl who takes him to cool restaurants, who suggests an interesting museum, who makes him watch one of your favorite movies he’s never seen. Help him remember that relationships are fun and enriching. With divorced guys, there’s a fine line when it comes to how much affection they want to be shown. They want cheek kisses and hand holding and hugs and an arm around them at times.. No need to wait two days so he will think you’re cool. He’s trying to spend time with his own kids, who he sees so much less than he did when he was married. Let the whole kid thing breathe, and it will happen naturally.
