Dating men who are separated
Each woman is connected to the man but they are not usually connected to each other. The gamut can run from two women who have known one another in the past, even possibly friends, to total strangers who are now connected to each other only by being attached in some way to the same man.Floppy relationship triangles are essentially unstable and the outcomes are not only unpredictable, but often dire.On the other hand, if you are looking for a life partner, a man whose life is in turmoil from a separation or ongoing divorce proceedings is a poor choice.Go slow, and keep things light until he is in a better place in his life.
You might find that he is committing adultery, making the divorce even more difficult and possibly pulling you into the proceedings.
That is especially true if the new relationship can threaten the other partner’s potential access to resources or loss of what they have.
If the separated man isn’t sure about reconnecting with his partner and a new relationship would make that option far less likely, he may not want to lose those choices so chooses to keep his options open by separating those two worlds.
Though there are multiple variations on the theme, there is one way in which they all are similar: two women are in a competitive triangle with the same man.
Triangles are stable when all three legs are connected.
Dating comes with many trials and tribulations, even in the best of circumstances.
