After all, you do not want to wind up with another man that is exactly like your ex, just with a different name and body.
It often depends on the divorced woman he’s dating.
If you’re dating someone who is just fresh out of a divorce, she is hurting; it’s a difficult time for her, and it probably will be for you, too—much more so than if you were dating a woman who has never been through a divorce.
You have to be respectful of that and recognize that because of this, she may be a bit careful and sensitive.
It’s likely this experience will shape her interactions with you — especially when it comes to how things start out. Someone who is divorced may have kids, and that adds a whole level of complexity to the relationship.
Questions to ask yourself: What are you waiting for? Why are you allowing his negativity to bring you down?
Do you feel sorry for him and want to “fix” his life? He tells you to wear his favorite color or certain types of clothing when going out on a date (or he buys you clothes to wear.) He tells you how and when to do everything.Your divorce is over and you are ready to get out there and start dating again.You are both excited about the possibilities and terrified that you will find a loser.There is no need to be concerned if only one or two people have something bad to say…but if everyone is saying it… Just about any situation can be viewed as a dating red flag based on your previous experiences with your ex-husband.Questions to ask yourself: What are they seeing – and what should I look out for? Consider everything and make a list of what you will and will not tolerate in a relationship along with red flags that could point to him being like your ex.Are there any issues in particular that a man dating a divorced woman should keep an eye out for?
