Dating a recently divorced woman
She needs to know she is loved—rich or poor—flaws and all.” As a dating coach for smart, strong, successful women, I’ve seen this up close, and think that this is a genuine obstacle for women to overcome.
I’ve written a lot about gender, money, and equality, and believe that the entire point of having money is that it gives you the freedom to marry for love rather than security. Male millionaires (smartly) don’t seek out female millionaires because, to them, it doesn’t matter what she makes.
All that matters is how she makes him feel: appreciated, accepted, adored.
Female millionaires – despite being equal to their male counterparts – have a huge block against dating a man with less money.
If he has kids, then you want to know what the arrangement is, so you can know what to expect when it comes to him providing childcare, and communication with the mother of his children.
Typically, when a divorce is final, it means that both parties have reached an agreement on custody and how to split up their mutual assets such as the house, investments, the pets, etc.
There have been a number of men who I have barely known for not more than two or three weeks (have not been intimate with) and have asked me to go on a week long trip with them or made plans for us to move in together.
Men, women need time also, we have lives before you, especially at this age.
Or if really bitter about the divorce, his unresolved feelings about the divorce might affect your relationship.
Sometimes there are amicable divorces; sometimes there are epic divorces that last years and years with lots of “collateral damage.” But if you’re dating recreationally and not considering him as a long-term partner, then these questions might not matter as much, since you’re not concerned with long-term compatibility.
But if you are considering him as possible life-partner, it’s good to know what you’re getting into, so you can decide, very consciously, whether you want to wade into deeper levels of commitment with him.
To her – like many women – the risk is not worth the potential reward.
Yet to 83% of divorced millionaire men, the risk IS worth it.
