Advice on dating a man going through a divorce
I've been dating a friend who is in the midst of a divorce.
I have liked him for years and supported him emotionally during this difficult time.
Does it sound like he was a heavier drinker then and is now sober or cutting back his drinking?
Does he have bouts of anger that might indicate his ex-wife was afraid of him?
Dating a guy who is going through a divorce can be a different type of relationship that not all women are equipped to deal with.
Although the best advice is to take it as slow as possible, things often speed up without us realizing it, as love can be the natural state of things and seem so easy when it appears.
Do you want to be with a man who is a big cheapskate?
If his discussion of the divorce is a one hundred percent blaming of his soon-to-be ex-wife, take a step back. If, at the core, the problem with his wife was a drug or alcohol problem, she may be responsible for a big part of the breakup, but he may have developed co-dependent tendencies.
This means that he needs to be part of a relationship drama instead of part of a relationship.
