Dating a newly separated guy dating cues
He may not be prepared to see his wife dating anyone else and give the both of you a hard time.
However, it may be an amicable separation and the divorce proceedings may be a formality free of additional stress or pressure.
Because a divorcing woman may have children, any new man will have to be aware that the kids may be very confused about their mom seeing someone else and not know exactly how to feel about you.
Be willing to meet the children on terms that are comfortable for their mother and for them, even if that means waiting a while to finally meet them.
He went to every effort to make sure the children knew we were ‘just friends’ even though his eldest has asked if I was his girlfriend, he didn’t want to meet my friends or family or introduce me to his, all the time we were dating.“I tried not to put any pressure on him, didn’t complain about his constant fretting or the times that his wife put a spanner in the works when we were supposed to go out.
One thing you can be faced with when you start to date a recently-separated dad is their guilt.
