If your separated man consistently avoids talking about his divorce or says things to minimize or downplay it, consider it a warning sign worth flagging.If you chose to proceed in dating him, I caution you to proceed slowly and with eyes wide open. Comments like, “Bah, I just want it over,” or “Doesn’t matter, we’ve been strangers for years,” may seem casual, even confident — but they also mask what’s going on underneath and behind the scenes.You probably have a million questions on your mind. With that said, if you meet someone you’re really attracted to, but the ink on his divorce papers hasn’t yet had time to dry, you are going to need to approach some things differently if you want to minimize the risk of getting your heart broken. ” It’s totally normal to feel like you want to step on the brakes and proceed with caution.

If you’ve been dating for a while and are looking to continue seeing each other, especially if you are dating with the intention of looking for a life partner, it’s not unreasonable to ask about the circumstances of his divorce.
Women should try to determine whether the motives for dating are similar to their own. When you recently discovered that you are dating a divorced man, it pays to ask some questions regarding the situation. Also remember not to share more about your personal life that what is needed.
Try to know for example, whether the divorce is already final or is it still going through the process. If you can, try to know the reason for the divorce. Avoid giving more that what you are getting during the date.
