Dating guy not divorced yet
While dating can be a challenging and confusing time for anyone, adding a man who is separated, but still married, can make things even more complicated.
Some women choose to avoid this situation altogether, vowing to only date men who are free and clear.
A few years ago, I tried to set up a guy who was separated but not divorced yet with a divorced woman.
When I told the woman he wasn’t divorced yet, she said “absolutely not.
I personally think that one person who isn’t divorced yet is very different from another person who isn’t divorced yet. So, don’t be so quick to decline a date with someone who isn’t divorced yet!
You could be jumping to judgment too quickly and passing up someone who you really could have connected with. Remember, there is a big difference between dating a person who is RECENTLY separated, (meaning it just happened 2 months ago and their soon-to-be ex just moved out last week), and a person who has been separated and living apart from his or her ex for two years.
The ex wife and the guy broke up, and now the guy is trying to get back together with my friend’s boyfriend! I also have a friend who was married to a guy for six years. A year ago, the two got back together and are now just dating but madly in love again and will probably get married again. Trust your gut, be honest with yourself, and be honest with the person. You will know which category the person falls into: he or she is ready to move on or they aren’t. Jackie Pilossoph is the creator and Editor-In-Chief of Divorced Girl Smiling.

Even certain people who get remarried still act this way!
Dating while separated is possible, but only if you’re 100% honest with yourself and your potential partner. Let yourself heal and get used to your own company before seeking out a new relationship. If you feel disconnected or frustrated about the state of your marriage but want to avoid separation and/or divorce, the course meant for married couples is an excellent resource to help you overcome the most challenging aspects of being married.
There are many men and women who have a rule when it comes to dating someone who is not divorced yet: they won’t do it.
It’s normal to feel lonely and vulnerable after a divorce, but that isn’t a reason to rush into a new relationship. If you’re just looking for someone to fill the gap left by your ex, you won’t make the best choices for yourself.
