Dating a man going through divorce
Several times we ended up in an intimate situation which was initiated by him and I did not stop it. Tis murphys law to be used by the one you love and cannot have simply because you love him. However, I don't know if that helped your heart much. Your life will be on hold, waiting and hoping for the day that he can commit to you and only you. I am currently contemplating taking a break from the relationship until he has everything cleared up. Very heartbreaking considering I don't know if "I need space" means it's over, or that he needs to deal with the upcoming divorce.I am struggling to get him out of my head and stop crying over the situation. I stayed away from any intimate contact with him for a couple of months but we have a strong mutual attraction and we ended up back in bed. I am aware that there are PLENTY of eligible SINGLE men who have so much to offer..including crazy drama. I have chosen not to ask questions and just give him the space he requested.
After reading a few comments by others on dating men going through a divorce I feel better about my situation and understand that it may have nothing to do with me and he is the one that needs to work on his healing. Sometimes with enough distance though, tis possible a former rebound he could transition after the single period. Nothing draws a circle around you writes rebound only. But yes, the seperation anxiety is going to kick in for sure and this is the point at which you do cry a lot and do pamper yourself a lot and time will settle his confusion, time will settle your intense pain. Well he did tell me that he does not want to be in a relationship until he feels like he has healed. Who knows what can happen once his heart is in a better place. I really miss my boyfriend and it's tough to think that all the plans for the future will never happen. We have spoken once on the phone and had minimal contact by texting. The fact that he is open to seeing you is a good sign. On that note, you need to move forward as well and do everything you can to take care of yourself and your feelings. When, and if, the time you guys are meant to be with each other, when he is ready and you are as well...you will be. Well I am trying to move past the fact that the relationship is over and he has decided that I should move on to another guy so quickly.

The first 6 - 8 months were great, he was texting me constantly and talking almost every day.
We live in different states and we only got to see eachother about 15 times in the entire 15 months but I fell for him hard and fast and have developed a painfully strong emotional attachement to him.Even if the two were fighting all the time and this divorce is seen as a relief, there’s bound to be some pain.
