Dating an older divorced man
Four years ago, a new match from Bumble sent me the following text: “I have something to tell you.” For me, this has never been a good thing. Since then, recently divorced men with kids have been pretty much the only men I date. ” When my friends’ teasing made me a little self-conscious, I tried to expand my dating pool.
I’m someone who, in the past, would lose her identity over the course of dating a new person.And Yes, it can end up in a great romance (after all, everyone deserves a second chance, when it comes to love), but it requires a whole other level of maturity, clarity and the ability to assess whether this man is actually worth the hassle…Through many rounds of martinis with girlfriends, discussing stories about single dads & dating, this is what I have come to conclude: Single dads, because of their divorce ordeal (which is usually bitter), behave like “Martyrs”, which appeals to women’s “Savior” gene.That his definition of a full-time job was “loose”? Thought of you.” They’ll send me pictures of dads they covertly snap on the Trader Joe’s checkout line. I have just two rules: First, I don’t date men who trash-talk the mother of their children, regardless of the circumstances. Maybe a guy who had a little more responsibility in his life would be less, well, stupid about the whole dating thing.
