Dating divorced man recently
Asking someone the reasons for their divorce may seem brash, but I would argue that it is wise to ask it soon after meeting someone new. A potential partner should offer this information willingly.
Soon after the incident at the singles’ retreat my boyfriend and I broke up.
He understands the seriousness of divorce, and he’s taking steps to heal and grow emotionally and spiritually.
However, it’s important that he begins this process he starts dating again.
There are different opinions about how long it takes. In the story I told above, my boyfriend had been divorced for about three years and yet he was still hurting.
Dating too soon after a divorce is sometimes a sign that the man is trying to fill the void left from his marriage.
Not only does an adequate amount of time need to pass before someone starts dating after a divorce, but that time should be purposeful.
Participating in professional counseling, mentoring, and support groups, ideally Christian-based, shows a man’s humility, maturity, and leadership.
Needless to say, this created a heated conversation of why he didn’t invite me to come along with him.He needs to seek healing for himself, not just to satisfy the wishes of a new girlfriend.Even though I have never been through a divorce, I imagine it is difficult to identify one clear reason for it. Depending on your interpretation of scripture, your personal experiences with divorce, and your convictions, you may not agree with the reasons. Today as I listen to single women tell their stories about dating divorced men, I remember my experience well.I see them making choices about dating divorced men similar to ones I made.
It was also a red flag that my suspicions were right – we didn’t share the same level of interest in each other.
