And because of the dead-end of getting involved with such a man, these women issue the blanket decree: “I will NEVER date that kind of man again.” This is a classic example of how the stereotype may be perfectly valid, but you can’t judge EVERY single person by the stereotype. Absolutely – especially if she just kicked you out of the house two weeks ago for cheating, you’re living on your friend’s couch, and you hope to reconcile.Hell, you’re even a risk if you’re just out of a divorce and want to “play the field”.

I filed with the court a legal separation and divorce decree at the same time.

My ex-wife and I were physically separated for almost 10 months, mentally separated longer than that.

We went to counseling for many months prior to the separation and it didn’t work.

I agreed to 3 years legal separation, so that she could get my health insurance, and then the divorce would be decreed.

Contrary to what some might say, that’s called “dating”. The issue is that most women don’t want to get emotionally involved with someone who could be considered high-risk.

A man who is freshly out of a dead marriage may be highly tempted to sow his oats for a while, or, at the very least, not settle into domestic bliss so soon after his separation.

As I’ve said before, there’s a difference between being ready to date and being ready for a relationship.

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.

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.
