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.
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.
Today as I listen to single women tell their stories about dating divorced men, I remember my experience well.
