That means, you’re dating her past; boyfriends and husbands, kids usually, and a whole lot of attitude, but they do know what goes where and why. Women often run from marriages or relationships and seek “comfort” where they can find it.That isn’t as sexist as it sounds; women need a reason, men usually just need a place.My problem is that because I am only separated and not divorced I fall into that stigma by women that I am only on the rebound, and they are not willing to give me the chance to start any type of a relationship.Believe me, I can tell you innumerable stories of women who dated married, separated, and recently divorced men who were either legally or emotionally unavailable.I have gone through the process of grieving and loss and I am ready to move on.My counselor is even the one to want me to start getting involved in dating.
Dating a separated man can be a tough situation at best, and it can be a plain old predicament if you add children into the mix.
So, I was single, had a nice house, nice car, and a good income; ‘course I did have that kid.
For a while if they weren’t under 25 and didn’t have a belly I could bounce a quarter on, I wasn’t interested, but then I figured out that I did kinda miss talking to them, and I started dating “older” women.
But, women of the ’60s being as they are, she needed “more space,” a euphemism for body parts unknown, so she took off and left me as a single father of a teenaged daughter.
Life gets real tough with that kind of unrelenting responsibility.
