It's impossible to date in the 21st century without, at some point, dating someone who’s divorced.Fortunately, most divorced singles have as many pros as they do cons.
If you meet a cute divorced guy, be on the lookout for the following Red Flags: Red Flag #1: His Divorce is Recent, divorce can devastate a man both financially and emotionally.
Many divorced men begin dating long before they’re finished grieving, and you don’t want to be his rebound or wind up with a guy who can’t give you what you need.
While it’s difficult to assign arbitrary dates for when it’s okay for a divorced man to begin dating, those who haven’t been divorced at least six months are often still dealing with divorce fallout (e.g.
grief, angry exes, hurting children, financial problems).
If he’s recently divorced, be cautious, take things slow, and make sure you get your needs met before getting too involved.
This is if your date is still getting divorced – separated men are a far riskier group, as I will discuss in a future article.
Red Flag #2: He Talks About His Ex Listening to your date talk about his ex is not only annoying, it’s an ironclad sign he isn’t over his marriage yet.
It doesn’t matter if his comments are critical, complimentary, or just factual. A man who talks about his ex may only be grieving his marriage, but it’s also possible he’s grieving the ex herself (which means there’s no room for YOU).
Most men know to avoid talking about past relationships on a date – divorce is no exception.
A divorced man should keep his mentions of the ex to a bare minimum, such as “my ex and I share custody of our son.” If he doesn’t, it may be time to move on.
If things work out with him, you will have ample time to share your pasts. He’s Working Through Stuff Divorced men may have a lot on their minds, including any unresolved grief, financial concerns, being a single parent, and generally trying to rebuild their lives.
