ontrary to popular belief, a divorced person can be a great partner.Yes, there is a bit of truth to the theory that there can be baggage and stress with dating someone who's newly divorced.If you’re a divorced guy, you don’t need to hear it from me: divorce sucks. Basically every student that attends our weeklong residential program in Los Angeles who’s divorced tells me that it’s the hardest thing he’s ever gone through in his life.What’s more, guys who have been through a divorce generally aren’t in a huge hurry to get back on the horse and start dating again. At least as much as someone who has never been there can.
Someone who still gets angry, teary-eyed or refuses to talk about the circumstances around the end of a prior marriage is clearly still trapped mentally within that old relationship's boundaries. He probably can't remember the last time he had a good time. Somewhere in between platonic-like touching and mauling makes a divorced guy happy. Chances are, the last few months (or years) of his marriage weren't fun. He doesn't want you plopping yourself down on his lap and making out at the dinner table at a fancy restaurant. Unlike guys before marriage, divorced guys aren't into games. Ask about the marriage, and then listen closely to the type of response that you get.A person that's ready to move on can express what worked and what didn't to you without getting terribly wrapped up emotionally in the discussion.It’s not going to be easy, but it’s necessary for you to completely heal and move on.
