Q: I have been dating a married woman who is separated for about a month, but we both agree it feels like we have known or been dating for years. Things had been going really well until this last week and could feel her getting a bit distant.She has been separated for over a year, but her husband has been dragging the divorce out. I finally asked her about it last night and of course it was a bit late. She is still married and doesn't know if she get into a serious relationship with me because she still is. A: A a lot of people make is getting involved in new relationships while old ones are still unresolved.
She helped me with decorating, picking out clothes, and cooking….And if you thought dating a single, uncommitted man was tough, wait till you date a divorced person!And when you’re dating someone going through a divorce, then you’ve just given new meaning to the term, ‘it’s complicated’!!!In most cases, a divorce is a decision that comes after a lot of pain and heartache, and is usually one that is made after a good deal of thought.A couple going through a divorce have likely exhausted all possibilities of making things work, and are breaking up a relationship that they once thought would last forever.I thought we were on the road to “happily ever after.” After several years, he just couldn’t commit to marriage. Some singles will not date a man or woman whose status is “separated.” While there isn’t a category of “separated, divorce pending” to select from, if you are not legally divorced, you are still married and may be unavailable. More often than not, a transition relationship will run its course. It is more common in cases of a difficult divorce than in an amicable divorce or the loss of a spouse.The guy who broke my heart couldn’t imagine life without me. I know of many happily married couples that met shortly after one’s spouse had passed away. It’s quite likely that you don’t know exactly what you want when your life is in transition and your emotions are at an all-time high. The “Transition Person” Like it or not, we sometimes need a transition person to help us through our life changes, divorces or breakups. It can help both singles grow as they get back into the dating scene. Sometimes our relationships end abruptly through death or betrayal. Whatever the reason you find yourself single now, it’s important to heal and understand that it does take time for you to be ready to get involved with someone new. You sign up for an online dating site, hoping to find someone to ease the pain and help you move on.Dating is never an easy, straightforward affair; and it probably wasn’t meant to be so either!When you are just getting to know a person, there are many things to consider, and several lines you cannot cross.
