“Dating as a single mother in my 20s.” __________________________ Dear Guys, I met the most wonderful man (over 40 and a bachelor) last August.
Prior to our relationship he had been in only one long term relationship (14 months), in which he was engaged for about 3 months before he abruptly ended it and blamed her for not being over her ex-husband.
Some time ago, I wrote an article titled “7 reasons why you shouldn’t date a divorced man,” and I must say I was overwhelmed with the amount of responses this article received.
When I wrote it, I was writing it based on my own experience in that matter, and it was relieving to see that over 80% of people who read this were either in the same boat as me or agreed with me.
To the extent that when he joined a country club recently he told me he was putting me down as his wife.
You don’t feel “incomplete” if you’re not in a relationship, and are maybe becoming a better person each day that you’re on your own..
That she, too, had failed to make it work, and men would recoil from her in disgust, running for the nearest 20-something as soon as possible. That’s an attractive trait to men looking for a worthy partner.2. You took a swing at love, rather than just playing it safe on the sidelines.
But I for one, think being divorced can actually be a stamp of awesomeness to we men willing to look past the stigma. You placed a bet in the lottery of life, and while it didn’t work out, you can dust yourself up and try again.
Having such a strong connection early on, I expressed that I would be open to marriage.
In the following months, he has talked about getting engaged, living together, and getting married.
