  • Would you date a divorced person?

    B. No... as since I'm heterosexual that means dating a divorced male and excluding how his divorce state suggests his failure and lacking as a worthwhile partner I find divorced guys tend to be more bitter, resentful, and misogynistic towards gals than most guys are. As well as there's the chance he's a father and just like most guys have no to little interest in single mothers I have no interest in single fathers though unlike it seems most guys I don't spew hatred about them being single parents.

    • ohh Udolipixie... you just don't like us guys don't you :) ... in any case.. I am not bitter at all.. I had an amicable divorce... andi don't have any children... .. infact.. I married a single mom and I helped her raise her daughter to be a confident and successful girl. Thanks and all the best :)

    • I'm indifferent towards guys as I am with most groups of people. I don't really do like or dislike unless it pertains to hatred, harming children, or harming animals I'm not that emotional.

      No need for the thanks.

    • You are definitely not emotional..

  • I would date a divorced person if me and him had the right chemistry. I think everyone should have a second chance at love. If the shoe was on the other foot, would I want guys to shun me just because things didn't work on in my first marriage? Absolutely not, as long as ex-wife is definitely out of the picture and not coming back then it's perfectly fine with me.

  • At one time, when I was younger and more naive, I'd have said no...but as a divorced woman now I would have no issues with this whatsoever.

    Sh!t happens, regardless of the best of intentions.

    • Very insightful answer .. really :)

  • Yes, I would 8f I'm really into him. Why, not it's not like he's still married.

    That's almost like saying I not date a guy that was in a relationship.

    Why not it's over?!?!'

    • Some people think a divorced guy is somehow less committed or that there is something wrong with him. I don't know why either..

    • Show All
    • That is very smart and mature!

    • Thanks =)

  • Yes. As long as he's within my age range 21-28 and he wasn't left because he's abusive. Men who use to be married are actually better people to date. It's been proven by a dating expert and matchmaker

    • No it isn't spouse abuse.. just people discovered that they are very different

    • then it doesn't make any difference to me.

  • Was dating a divorced dude and he wasn't emotionally available at all. Just up and disappeared after 3 months. Bad news...

  • When I was younger I would have said no! I don't want to be second best. But now I realize how stupid that is. Every life is different and so many things can go wrong. I would also not mind children per se, but I would need to be able to like them. I would not date a man who had children but did not want to see them and did not care about them. If he was a father I would want him to be a good one.

    • That is fair enough.. and very insightful of you !

  • No not at the moment because I'm in my early 20's. Maybe from early 30's? Also, it depends on whether you have kids or not.

  • i am separated, I don't know how to go about dating myself.

    i understand your feelings, but I don't know what to say as I am in the same boat.

    you said you married to a divorced woman and helped her raised her daughter, may I ask what happened? are you two still friends?

    • We parted as friends yes. But now she lives in a another country and has remarried. So we don't keep in contact any more.. but this is because we have no children together. I am friends with her family though. They like me.

      My situation is a bit different. This marriage was my first ever relationship. And we simply were not compatible . We both made mistakes and we decided to part as it is the best for both of us.

  • I would date a divorced person as long as he's not in the middle of it.
