Dating a guy just out of a long term relationship validating a computer system
But don't flat out refuse to get caught up with another girl. We have been very quiet about it and think once the word gets out I will have to deal with the friends 2 cents.
If you enjoy being with her and have fun, then why not? I do feel a good connection and having fun but we haven't put a label on it.
I forced myself to be patient and had very limited contact with him. The most important thing to me is that I share my life and be married to someone who really cares about me.
Now that I am over 30, I see that many of the best guys are already in committed relationships or married.
It went terribly, I'm sure I came off as really needy.
Just make sure you're dating her because you like her, not because you like dating For me I started dating immediately after and that was bad.
At that point I wasn't talking about my ex at all and could see the girl as a potential partner and not just a pretty face to mend my wounds.Rule of thumb: One month for every year you were together.Anything earlier is a rebound and will likely fall apart as you heal.He said he had fallen in love with me and wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. Basically, I want to have a close relationship that leads to marriage and a family, and originally he seemed open to the idea of doing things differently than he did with this other woman.We tried to hold off but started becoming romantically involved while he was still splitting up and dealing with the "divorce." Some days were wonderful; others were unhappy because he was very stressed out about all the changes in his life. We are both successful professionals and having children is what I want but not a "deal-breaker" if he can't overcome his reluctance to make the sacrifices necessary to raise children.
He was upset that I shied away from him, told me he was very unhappy, that he and his partner were not well suited and had a distant relationship, and that he needed to make a change.
