Dating a divorced man

13 September 2016, 22:50 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - On the list of people to avoid, this one is usually included because 1. Why did they get divorced and was he the root cause and 2. She is always going to be around especially if they have kids among other things.

But you cannot go around avoiding people based on stereotypes because that is how you miss out on potentially good partners.

This is one of the relationships you actually do have to take slow

There is a reason the stereotype exists; don’t fall in love too fast and end up having an oops moment. Find out whatever you need to find out and make a decision as to whether you want to stick around for it. There is always something and it is your job to figure it out.

She is not going anywhere

Just prepare yourself for that. If there are kids, the kids are not going anywhere and the mother of those kids is not going anywhere. That is the downside of any relationship that involves children. No one is going anywhere until either of them is six feet under. Get over it or move on. If you are putting up with any negatives right now, that is what you are going to have to deal with.

Comparisons from everyone including the divorced person

You know the way people don’t like being told about a certain ex; you not only have to deal with it from that partner but their whole family as well. They will constantly be comparing you to that former spouse and seeing your pros and cons. You will get tired of it but it is not going to go away for a long while. Every person you come in contact with will be constantly bringing up the former wife.

You will wait for a very long time for anything long term situation

Any person that has tried being married and had a bad experience that led to a divorce will not be trying to get back in the same situation for a long while. If you are in a hurry to settle down, you will have to learn patience from this one.
