They turn out to be everything we were looking for...minus the ex-wife and kids.
I've been dating one with 2 children (6 and 8) for almost 2 1/2 months.
I feel we need some time apart or with very less contact.
I m younger and independent women never been in a relationship before.
Now we have been dating almost a year and were thinking of getting married.
They signed the papers 4 months ago, but he tells me they have not been a "couple" for years. I'm thinking, okay, that should be enough time for him to get settled into this new life and for us to get to know each other really well.
In Italy, when you sign papers for a divorce, you are legally separated and can date other people, but the actual divorce is not until 3 years later. By that time, I would have met his children and family and maybe things would be okay, if we ever decide to get married.
He cant commit right now after being married for so long and i totally understand that.
Plus he has children and their feelings about the break up of their family to think about. I am trying hard to go slow, I guess I don't know how to do it. I just have this thought that he is doing all of this cuz he wants to go back to his ex, which I honestly don't think so, but my anxiety does! That will go to his children first, then his ex-wife.Hello, I am a 26 yr old female and currently dating a newly divorced man with 2 young children. He still wants to spend time with me, he says he likes me and and still wants to hang out.He really is a great guy to me, very good with his children and devoted to their lives. We get along very well, have a lot of fun and a lot in common, its new, only a little over a month. I always have a fear men are just going to cheat, lie or leave me. I have high anxiety that 9 times out of 10 I give to myself! and I dont really know how to move slow, I am trying my hardest. I feel I need to take more steps back then him, I don't wanna chance getting hurt.Drama will rear it's head eventually and could lead you to places you'd rather not go. Stay a step back at all times and let him come to you. When gets really comfortable with you eventually the kids will.There will be plenty of times that he will want to spend time with you and you only for now (if you can do it) devote your times with him and the kids, like the zoo, museum, Hicking, Biking or what every.I met a man one month after he divorced and 18 months after he separated. He is a wonderful man and we have a great time together. I fell for him hard and we moved the relationship along quickly.
