Consequently, many jump into relationships before they're truly ready, often without even realizing it.
The thing of it is, I don't think it's a good idea to have a false relationship, or to pretend that things are okay when they're not.
Of course, I realize every man is unique, but these are just some features that I notice a lot. And they don't want to feel obligated to do anything!
Just like divorced women, divorced men are wounded. They want to be loved, they want to be treated with kindness, they want to feel appreciated, and they want to feel like they are still capable of being in a healthy relationship. Some divorced men want to fall in love right away, and some want to take their time.
Yes, I knew that he was divorced and had two children, but just knowing that he did want kids was to overcome the first hurdle of dating him.
By putting more pressure on him, I pushed him away.
To avoid adding pressure, make sure that you know that you are both on the same path.
TIP 1: Make sure you are both aligned to what you want.
Even though he said he wanted kids, I could tell half way through our dating that things had changed, and I ignored the signs.
