I’m not sure if I’ve pushed him away or if it’s really his circumstances that are keeping away.

I have pushed guys away in the past and have tried very hard this time to be more aware of my actions.” Dear Hanging, First off, this situation is exactly why I encourage women to avoid dating men who are not divorced for at least a year and I would tell men the same thing.

Before you enter the next dating situation, ask the man how long he’s been divorced and if it’s less than 9 months to a year, walk away!

I wonder why you’re interested in dating this man after: As a dating coach for women, I say any of these is reason enough not to see him again!

What is it about him that makes him worth your time or affection?

The men you date should not text or talk on the phone during your date and show you far more respect and interest.

Know you are worthy of a man’s full attention unless there is an emergency.

When you like certain parts of a man that capture your attention which causes you to overlook other characteristics that would make him unattractive, that’s how I KNOW you are compartmentalizing. You have one compartment in your mind for all the things you like about him and a separate compartment where you ignore what you don’t like.

What you need to realize is these things are all PART OF THE SAME MAN. He is a package deal and it’s time you start seeing him as the sum of his parts.

Each client needs to determine his or her own balance regarding the risks and rewards of dating during marital dissolution litigation. If a parent is going to date prior to a divorce that parent needs to be warned not to expose the child to those he or she dates.

This blog is intending to help litigants understand these risks. Code § 63-15-240(B) sets forth sixteen specific criteria for the family court to consider when determining child custody. Alimony and property division can also be affected when a spouse dates prior to a final order of separate maintenance.

When this man said to you he had to “sort things out,” that’s Man Speak for “I can’t see you any more”. He said he hoped you would understand, but you missed his meaning. Next time a man says he ‘s got to sort stuff out, say GOODBYE because that’s exactly what he means. I do encourage my clients to make themselves available and if you can’t make a date, then suggest another option. Personally, I can’t help but think he used you to make his wife jealous.

You said that perhaps you pushed him away by not being available when he wanted to see you. Otherwise why the heck would he ever tell her about you? I think he was hoping to get her back by dating you and this is a huge risk of dating a separated man.

I admit to pushing him to make a few dates along the way but have never text or called him before he has done so.
