Should you date a separated man? Most women say, “Hell no!” In this video, you’ll hear my three principles for deciding whether to date a separated man.

Should you date a separated man? Most women feel they shouldn’t date a separated man because:

a. He may not be over his ex yet, and they might reconcile.

b. He may not be emotionally ready for a relationship yet.

c. Their faith is against dating men who are not yet divorced.

While all of the above reasons are valid, I feel it’s not that black and white of a situation. In this video, I offer a way to see the issue of whether you should date a separated man through a new lens. Check it out!

[VIDEO] Should You Date a Separated Man?

There are MANY reasons why a man could be separated and not yet divorced. For example, I have a friend who left his wife, moved into a new apartment, and seven years later, he was still not divorced. Why? He wasn’t in a hurry to divorce her, because he had no plans to remarry. He met the right woman, and a few months later, the divorce was final.

That’s one of the reasons why I don’t believe in hard and fast rules about dating and relationships. Instead, I teach principles or guidelines to follow if you want to go on your last first date.

Three Principles For Dating a Separated Man

Principle Number One:

Just because a man is separated doesn’t automatically make him the wrong person for you. Learn more about his separation before judging him. 

Principle Number Two:

Know your must-haves and what kind of relationship you’re looking for, and don’t compromise on either. For example, if you’re looking for a long-term relationship with an emotionally available man, and he’s newly separated and dating casually, he’s not your guy.

Principle Number Three:

Every person has their own story about emotional readiness. Find out his. Start the conversation with something like, “I noticed you’re separated. Can you tell me more about that?”

And one last thought…let’s flip this around and ask ourselves, what if it was ME dating again after I split with my ex and I wasn’t yet divorced? How would I want a man to see me? Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.
