My divorce is amicable and I maintain a good relationship with my ex.There’s no love there though, we’ve clearly moved on. I have my stuff together…own my own place, pursuing an MBA, good job, do the best for my kids, and I’m in a good place right now.I’m not looking to rush back into a marriage, but I’m looking to date with an intent on finding a relationship.It’s what feels right for me and I feel ready for it.Whether you’re a parent yourself or not, the dating scene can be tricky.And from the point of view of a woman who wants to start dating a separated dad, it can be a complete minefield.
One woman proceeded to tell me “recently divorced people are somewhat unstable emotionally”.
I wouldn’t fear being exclusive with the right person.
I don’t have a wide network of people where I live, so I’m online.
It doesn’t matter if the separation from their child’s mother was amicable, her ‘fault’ or down to his own misdemeanours, there will always be an element of guilt where the kids are involved.
Take Fiona for example.“I met John, a recently separated dad on a dating site a few years ago.
