What to expect when dating a newly divorced man
Like you, the men you’re dating have lived and learned. The only way you can empathize is to know their side of the story.Just like how you’ve dated your share of challenging types of men like the disappearing/reappearing Pinger, the Couch Potato, and the older-and-balder-than-his-profile-guy…men meet and enter into relationships with less-than-impressive types of women.She mistrusts men and often blames herself for the rejection she’s felt, believing that she just wasn’t good enough.She says things like “I need him to say he wants a relationship, and then I’ll open up,” or “Once he gets to know me, he probably won’t like me.” The Scaredy Cat may put her guy through lots of tests before she feels confident that he’s truly interested.She gets stuck in affairs with men who never commit, and it’s often the nice guys who are interested in her who bear the brunt of her hurt and anger.The Scaredy Cat he Scaredy Cat has been emotionally wounded by men in the past, and she can’t let go of it.
Those rare gems who value women with age and experience are just that – rare! I am happier than I have ever been and what I truly have learned is that I don’t need a man to make me complete.
They won’t be interested in pumping your ego or making you feel young.
