You had too much going on during your divorce to possibly consider dating. This same script, I’m reminded, played out in the life of one of my favorite clients who fell in love with a separated man.
Getting a divorce is basically like going through your worst breakup times a million.
He’s doing what’s practical not to scare people off.
The relationship might have been dead five years ago, but the paperwork is still pending. A man who says he’s ready to move on isn’t necessarily ready to move on. After all, he doesn’t even know if he is or if he isn’t.
”In it, I concluded that it’s up to the individual. And just cause you WANT to move on from your previous relationships does not mean you’re really READY to. Generally, if you’re dating immediately after divorce, you’re hurt, reeling and looking for a safe harbor in the storm that is singledom.

Very reasonable men want to love again, and are shocked to find out that it’s not possible.
The exact quote was “if you’ve mourned, if you’ve healed, if you’ve made peace — then you’re ready whenever you say you’re ready.”Allow me to correct myself. I have a client who went out with a man who was separated. On the other hand, you’ve heard tales of men who went seamlessly from one relationship to another without a break.In dating, you may meet the seemingly perfect person when said person is in a not-so-perfect situation.
