Currently seperated online dating
Read this email I received from a reader who is having problems in online dating because he is separated–not officially divorced.
My divorce is amicable and I maintain a good relationship with my ex.
Here is how I feel: Now, one would think I would be totally against dating someone who is separated and not divorced yet, basically because I have done it a few times, and one time I got pretty badly burned.
A guy I was seeing who was separated—not divorced was still sleeping with his ex.
He is going to be officially divorced in September, so what is the difference in one month? He will turn out fine, and when his divorce is final, he will probably get more dates, which seems a little silly to me (that the women care so much) but it is what it is, right?
During the next 30 days is he going to all of a sudden become ready to date? Over his divorce just because he will have a piece of paper that says he is no longer married? I am not going to tell him I think he should lie on his profile and tell women he is divorced. Divorced Guy Grinning is a blog for men facing divorce and dating after divorce.

People often wonder about dating someone who is separated—not officially divorced. I have been separated for over a year, with young kids I have half the time.
Another says “I see you’re separated…I’m looking for a serious relationship”.
Their determined, confident attitudes and visible business successes appealed to my strong desires for security and stability.
A recent first date I went on was with this type of guy.
There’s no love there though, we’ve clearly moved on. I have my stuff together…own my own place, pursuing an MBA, good job, do the best for my kids, and I’m in a good place right now.
I’m not looking to rush back into a marriage, but I’m looking to date with an intent on finding a relationship.
