Your own emotions are erratic, and it would be easy for you to get infatuated with anyone who treats you with dignity, respect, and warmth.
Have you noticed the number of people who get married the day after they are divorced? If the separation period is a time to seek reconciliation, why spend energy in an activity that leads to divorce and remarriage? We are still married while we are separated, and we ought to so live, whether or not our spouse complies.
I would never date a "separated" man ever again It means MARRIED!
I just can't stand the sad stories and the excuses Because they are not flakey, they are just "separated" but still tending to ALL the family affairs, right?

BTW, I joined this site to make new friends and to prove that there are other fish in the sea. It isn't the separated or divorced or never married her that's the problem it's how attached he still is to her and/or the whole not-quite ended relationship.Hi, I was wondering if any women on here have ever had a POSITIVE experience with dating a man who is separated, but not divorced.The cynical/realist in me knows that usually these relationships end up in heartbreak, but then again, over 50% of all marriages end in divorce, so some separated men do end up getting divorced.Financial issues are almost always created with a divorce, but when they don't consider themselves PARTNERS anymore, they each make their own way through them, seperately. If you pursue this, how he is now will not be how he will be a year from now,or divorced. Personally I don't get involved with men who are still mentally living with the ex, I don't see the point of a three way relationship.The only positive outcome I can see for this is for you to hold on to your heart until this man demonstrates a genuine desire and inclination to make himself available to be yours and yours alone. What's the reason she's unemployed and being supported in a grand lifestyle?I've had lots of email contacts with wonderful men, but my current bf says he wants me all to himself, so I haven't gone out with anyone. I look forward to hearing if there are any POSITIVE outcomes to dating a separated man. Often in such a situation, a guy will grab a girl like a life preserver... Lot's of people are divorced but still so hung up and involved with the ex that there's no room for a new relationship, although they may jump into them.I'm also frusterated with a man who wants me all to himself when he is supporting his wife and keeping her in a grand lifestyle. I know this isn't what you want to hear, but when people are truly finished with one another as marriage partners, they get divorced.... Only you can know what he does or doesn't do and how it makes you feel.I mean, love, attention, money, is all for his kids and WIFE. After both of my marriages, it was about three years before I could afford a divorce (I left the first one, and he didn't want a divorce; the second left me, and didn't want a divorce).You will only get to have hurried sex with him to help him with the stress all that is bringing, maybe a late night coffe shop for a sandwich, consider yourself ........ Edit; So, to fulfill you requirements of a positive experience with a separated man, I dated ONE a long time ago, the positive part of it is that I LEARNED what a tremendous waste of my time that was! In the first case, I was ready and willing the day the moving truck came -- the marriage had been on triage for years.I know this is difficult to accept, but I believe the present trend of open dating immediately after separation must be deterred.Such activity encourages and contributes to the increasing divorce rate. Develop friends, but refuse romantic involvement until the fate of your marriage is determined.
