Currently, I am using online dating to meet new prospects, though I choose not to date anyone who is going through divorce.
I am divorced and have been for two years and am of the opinion that there is too much other stuff going on in one’s life during a divorce to date, as well.
The guy recently got out of a long term relationship (his marriage.) He doesn’t need a girlfriend that he has to call every two minutes, or that he feels obligated to go out with every Saturday night.
Be the girl who takes him to cool restaurants, who suggests an interesting museum, who makes him watch one of your favorite movies he’s never seen. Help him remember that relationships are fun and enriching.
But with the onslaught of dating apps, it's now all too easy (seriously, just swipe right..left). That one who, after three dates, asks you to pick up some toilet paper, plants his feet on you for a foot rub, and immediately starts slipping into the same homey habits he had with his ex. Sorry, but he can only fit you in every other Tuesday because his life is just so.
