I have witnessed this many times and men have openly shared with me that they would love to be married again one day and “make it right this time.” I have dated divorced men who have acknowledged that they spent a great deal of time building their businesses during their marriages and they wish they had been more romantic or listened more or had brought their wives flowers more often or had been more complimentary to their spouses. There are many divorced men out there who have taken the time to work on themselves and their mistakes after their marriage ended and have a new-found commitment to making things right the next time around.
Ladies, as much as we love men (and, I really do), we want to acknowledge that they can often mature, grow up and find their way in a relationship a bit more slowly than women do.
I believe that marriage teaches men responsibility, structure, how to co-define reality, what women want and how to put someone else before themselves.
I have giggled to myself and so very much appreciated the little things that divorced men I have dated have done for me.
They have taken out my garbage, carried my luggage, taken my car for an oil change, cooked me dinner, talked about my day at work and brought me breakfast in bed.
I have found that men who have been married are a bit more structured and familiar with the little things.
Although there are still stigmas surrounding dating divorced men, here are a few reasons you just might have a delightful experience: Men are, by nature, fixers and problem solvers.
They seem to naturally have more of a routine and offer to do things that a lot of men who have never been married would not think to do for another person.
I have dated many single 40-year old men who are super set in their ways, while men who were married before seem to have a deeper understanding of taking care of a woman… [NOTE: if you’re ready to meet the man (divorced or otherwise) who is familiar with these little things, take the first step and try Meet Mindful for free today—the fastest growing dating site for conscious singles.] I openly share that I have chosen my career first and never wanted my own children.
I have many single girlfriends who share this choice and many who chose marriage, had children and got divorced.
I have found that dating divorced men with children to be an amazing experience for myself, as well as my friends and clients who are now single women with children of their own.In my 20s, almost all of my relationships failed because I chose not to have children of my own.
