This is difficult, but passing them over might mean passing over someone great!While dating a divorced man may pose special problems, don’t just reject this group of guys outright.He probably has a good job, since odds are, he’s been there a while. Your life may be in a constant state of crazy and your mind may usually run in 12 different directions, but his stability is refreshing and helps to keep you balanced amidst the chaos of your world.Maybe in more ways than one, but he definitely has real-world experience and the benefit of the 20/20 hindsight vision you won’t have for years. Your initial reaction to the idea of dating a divorced man might simply be – No thanks! The advantage of dating someone who has already been “down-the-aisle” is that in many aspects of our lives – we make mistakes, learn from them and try NOT to repeat them in the future.
If you just dismiss guys because they are divorced, you could be missing out on a whole world of potentially great partners.

Without the pressure of all that, there’s a lot more time and room in a relationship to actually be in the moment and enjoy getting to know one another without feeling preoccupied by future expectations. He has a couch instead of a futon, there’s more than beer in his fridge and you aren’t likely to have to forage through his bathroom in search of something that resembles toilet paper.Can you imagine what a quiet apartment with no roommates sounds like? Aside from the whole divorce thing, he’s likely to have his life together (and if he doesn’t, run).
