Dating a separated woman with kids
I most often run into people dating while separated when they're separated themselves and involved with someone else who's separated too.
A more accurate term for 'separated' in most of these cases would really be 'separating,' since few of these people are actually through their divorces or have completely ended their previous relationships.
She has been dating prior to me, but I don't think it has been as serious as us.Being someone who lost about 10 pounds right off the bat, I felt anything but pretty and sexy and confident. When I got separated, I temporarily became a person who doesn’t define who I really am. I was very stressed because I now had to think about what I was going to do for work, with no current computer skills and no belief in myself. I was coming out of a toxic situation: I think when two people are in an unhappy, unhealthy marriage, (which could be for years) both are losing self-worth every minute they stay together. Because you are around this person constantly who you think hates you, or who is belittling you, or who you know doesn’t want to be with you anymore, or who is condescending, or mean.Or, maybe you are the one who wants out of the marriage.In the past, I would never date women who were separated nor women who were recently divorced-i.e. However, I am rethinking my approach and would like comments from the readers of this blog and their experiences.First, should one consider dating separated persons or is it an experience fraught with danger? Second,if one meets a divorced person how long does it take for them to get over their failed marriage and be open to a new relationship?
