Indeed, in The Divorce Experience: A Study of Divorce at Midlife and Beyond conducted by researcher Xenia Montenegro for the AARP, divorce is observed to be as emotionally traumatizing to a couple as experiencing a major illness.
Even after one moves on and attempts to get back to the dating scene, many scars and misconceptions may be carried over by a woman that will scare away any potential guys interested in forging a romantic relationship.
The following are some of the reasons men are afraid of dating a divorced mother: Many women get back to the dating scene too quickly without giving themselves time to heal adequately.
More specifically, female divorcees tend to experience loneliness, depression, a sense of failure, betrayal and inadequacy soon after getting.These may subsequently be imposed onto their dating relationship, whether or not the new man is at fault.For a man who is just getting to know a woman, this may just be too much to handle. (And weren’t you looking for someone who would be a great mother? She’s incredibly patient, but doesn’t have a lot of tolerance for bad behavior.
She’ll only keep you around if the relationship is a good thing for both her and her kids.
She’s loyal — and is fiercely protective of her little brood. She can articulate what she wants and needs from a relationship.
She’s no longer a party girl, but a fun night out is still very welcome.
Moms make the best lasagna and give the best back rubs. You’ll get to take part in adventures to amusement parks, the zoo and the park.
She knows that life doesn’t always go as planned and has learned how to make the best of it. Single moms can do it all, but are super-appreciative of a helping hand.
Divorce is a very traumatizing experience especially when it happens after one has already had kids and is well settled.
