What to expect when dating recently divorced man

Be aware of when the divorce happened There’s a difference between being separated for a few months and being divorced for several years. If you’re finding he is talking a lot about his ex-wife or his marriage, he may need more time to move on before starting a new relationship.Be prepared for meeting the ex When two people have children together, they nearly always have to remain in each other’s lives.To begin with, it would be unfair to expect something long-term from a man who's just turned single, possibly after a long time.

We’re often scared (even if nothing has actually happened yet with a particular person) that we may be letting our last chance or even best chance saloon slip away.We talk daily (if he has his son it’s usually by text, otherwise we chat by phone in the evenings), he makes it a point to see me once a week and we always have so much fun together.When we are together things are easy and fun, just as they should be!Put the kids first Your new man’s kids will always come first to him, so don’t try to compete for his affection.Even if you’re thrilled about the prospect of meeting them, be aware that you need to be the one to fit into their lives, not the other way around.
