Dating a newly separated women
My advice is, just keep being you, and have the attitude of, ‘I am who I am.
She likes me or she doesn’t.’ It’s as simple as that. Regarding taking things slow, I completely agree with Jason’s post, that you shouldn’t mistake the honeymoon phase (which you are clearly in) for love.
What I first want to say to this man is how happy I am that you are doing what you are supposed to be doing: enjoying life and love!!
I think it is so wonderful that you have met someone (or reconnected) who turned your “dormant heart and soul flowing again! You could act like a jerk, say something really offensive, or not treat her nicely, and that would mess things up.
Okay, it’s time to have an open and frank discussion about the battle of the sexes and the dating game.
It’s far too complex, scary and difficult for mere mortals – so let’s bridge the gap by asking both men and women what doesn’t work when it comes to online dating Dating has gone digital.
If you really like this woman, there is nothing wrong with spending all your free nights with her.
All that said, I disagree with Jason that you should “date a few different people.” I personally have never been very good at dating more than one person at a time.My kids are my focus and that was truly enough for me. We started talking, reminiscing – we clicked as if we had been the best of friends for the 20 years, even though we had not seen or even talked to each other during this time (other than the occasional Facebook like or comment). Now, we both are matured, have experienced divorce and all it’s tribulations (her more so than me) and professionals in our respective fields. Not sure I know what taking things slow truly means?I also have no interest in dating others, and not because I reconnected with her – it’s just not who I am? I honestly could not wait to respond to this man, because I was jumping for joy while reading this!” Before I get into taking things slowly, I want to address your fear that you are going to “mess things up.” My opinion is that is impossible. Those things are in your control, and seem like an improbability.
As far as what you can’t control, (which is HER), don’t worry about it.
