You two were a couple, and to see your spouse with someone else will trigger feelings in you that may be surprising and unpleasant.
It does not mean you are still in love but rather you are witnessing the evidence that your spouse now has someone else in the place you used to fill.
My previous blog ("Should You Date Your Ex-Spouse," dated 1/17/11) made the audacious proposal for considering dating an ex-spouse, since the likelihood of strong positive feelings when getting married could create a positive basis for a renewed relationship, if both parties have matured and stopped blaming each other.
Dating an ex-spouse should not be simply a response to loneliness, matter of convenience and/or lack of alternatives.
Never take it personally unless she is clearly saying or doing things to hurt or upset you.
The Ex Factor One of the most troubling hurdles for men to overcome when dating a single mom is the fact that the ex-husband or boyfriend may still be around, caring for his children.
You wouldn't want to get children's hopes up, and your choice can confuse friends who have accepted your accounts of the divorce that typically frame the ex-spouse in a less-then-positive light.
Whether the divorce was your idea or your spouse’s, most people find themselves experiencing negative emotions when their ex-spouse starts dating again. Here are 6 tips that will help you process those negative emotions: 1. You spent a large part of your life with this person, and during the years you were together, dating and married, you came to think of that person as YOUR significant other.
These are common questions you may ask yourself when your ex-spouse starts dating again.
Irrespective of the circumstances of your divorce, the dating again can be quite painful to both you and your former spouse.
You will not exactly enjoy seeing your ex-husband move on with another person and it will bother him to see you do the same.
