Dating seperated or going through divorce
Currently, I am using online dating to meet new prospects, though I choose not to date anyone who is going through divorce.
If you have children, then you also need to realize that it's in your best interest to try to keep a cordial relationship with your husband.
One of the most common temptations people fall for when a relationship is ending is the desire to find a new love - Often these people have been unhappy and missing love, companionship and sex for a longtime, and so there's a real pent-up, unmet need for love.
Since I counsel men and women before, during and after a relationship or marriage, including through a divorce, I frequently see people dating when separated.
Also, it seems that about 40% of the men who state they are divorced are actually still going through the process. That stated, I have come up to some heavy objection from both family and friends – hence I’m here.
They have given many examples of relationships that began quickly after a separation/break-up, so I am beginning to wonder if I am selling myself short – being too rigid.
And with the prevalence of cheating, a lot of times one partner has already begun a new relationship and the other partner is now seeking to get 'mine.' Once it's been decided by one, or both, partners to end the relationship, most typically both of partners start seeking a new relationship. If you really care about your new love interest then you'll apply more reason than emotion to your decision about dating while separated.
