Sleeping alone can be a foreign experience for most women. This is in the case of women who have been married for years and have had children with a man. Feelings of depression and loneliness are not abnormal. Losing a loved one after divorce can be likened to losing in death. The five stages they will feel include anger, depression, denial, resentment and finally acceptance. Only after these five emotions have been experienced, that the women are ready to become women dating after divorce.
Quite often, friends and family push them to start dating again. Unfortunately, they aren’t ready until all these above stages are experienced. If the feelings for the ex-husband have not subsided, it can cause even more problems. Psychologically and emotionally, they are left with levels of low self-esteem, feeling unwanted with respects to other men.
While feeling these emotions, they also do not want to be left single for the rest of their lives. Occasionally divorced women become easy prey for married men, these men specialize in making such women feel special and loved. This is in the early stages. In truth, it is rare that married men will leave their wives and children for another woman, no matter what the circumstances. The divorced women could find themselves waiting night after night for a phone call or a visit that is never going to materialize.
Meantime the women shun family and friends on the off-chance that the man will show up for a visit. While most men do not feel the need to avoid wives, kids or family, women are prone to burning bridges with anyone remotely associated with their ex-spouse. Many divorced women who begin dating feel guilty. This is especially true if these women have children. Aside from having to arrange baby sitters and operating as one parent, the children can often resent the relationship with another man.
But because they are so excited and so vulnerable, they tend to turn away from those that love them. They leave their days and nights open in case he may call on them. However, these married men will stay with their own families. On the other hand, the divorced women suffer even more as their own families and friends give up on them. And when there are children in the whole equation, it gets even more complicated. These women have to continuously make arrangements for adults to babysit the kids. They also have to play the role of both parents with more responsibilities. And when relationships do present themselves, there is often resentment on the side of the children.
Quite often, it worsens when the relationship between the children and the father is a good one. Of course, regardless of the situation, neither parent should discourage communication or relationship between kids and fathers. The most important thing for any parent to do is put their children first. No matter what your differences are with your ex-husband, it should never be used against them. And, if the children do have a good relationship with their fathers and are in their care, then the women can try to move on and meet others in the free time that they have.
This is why men do not have issues with dating different women at the same time. When women become too clingy in the early dating days, then this should be a sign to slow the relationship down. Often times these men just disappear and the relationship is over.
