The question, "Can I date while going through a divorce? Whether you decide to do so will depend on your personal situation, but it may not be the best decision to get involved with a new person until after your divorce is finalized.
If you’re involved with someone who’s going through a divorce (or will be), you need to be ready for the roller coaster ride.
It takes having a strong sense of yourself and your worth, having a very effective support system in place, and a sense of humor really helps a lot.
Part of coming to terms with the end of the marriage is realizing what part each person played in whatever issues led to the breakup.
It is all too easy to blame the other spouse for the problems that caused the marital relationship to unravel.
Another reason you will want to think about the question, "Can I date while going through a divorce?
" is that any new relationship you start will affect the children of the marriage as well. Both parties have been in long term marriages, It took a long time for my divorce to be final, 17 months, I have been single a total of 3.5 yrs counting the divorce time.This man I am "seeing" is in the last stages of his divorce, he has dated many women in the interm...have great chem, we have a great time but both agree we are not looking for a commitment at this time.Guys, give me a little insight here, what the hell is going thru this guys head!I like him and enjoy his company but I am not going to bear the brunt of his anger over his divorce. While a person who has recently ended their marriage may feel like they should be going out on dates to prove that they are still attractive, there are good reasons to delay getting involved with a new person.
