Divorce and dating for men men and internet dating
Every year my church hosted a singles retreat in Destin, Florida on Labor Day weekend.It was the first year I went, and even though it was for singles, I was dating someone at the time, a man previously married. My boyfriend and I spent time together, but we weren’t inseparable like you might think.However, it’s astounding how many people, Christians and non-Christians, get into relationships with people before they are legally divorced.I imagine this is evidence of our societal apathy towards the marriage covenant.He might think that finding a significant other quickly will get life back to normal quickly.But like any breakup, a man must go through a grieving and healing process before he is ready to date.
Needless to say, this created a heated conversation of why he didn’t invite me to come along with him.
At the time this annoyed me, and I wondered if he was as into me as I hoped.
One afternoon I had been on the beach since after the morning general session, but I had not heard from my boyfriend all day.
If I had taken his past seriously and asked some tough questions, we may have not gone out again after the first date.
Even though I knew breaking-up was the right decision, it’s always hard to say good-bye to someone you spend time getting to know.
As I stepped off of the elevator, I saw him straight ahead sitting on a glass-topped table in the hallway. There was extra “stuff” to work through – a whole other person from the past worth of stuff.
