Dating ex spouses friend
Here are the problems I am running into:1) Child hopes mom and dad will get back together, does everything possible to cause problems with new relationship.2) Ex is hoping to get back together, also does everything to make the relationship end including teaming up with child to cause problems. How many threads have we read where a man or woman got back with the ex and they didn't live together? I think for finances sake they could make other arrangements.
3) Woman is ignoring everything and getting mad at me because I don't want to come over for family dinner, or sleep over.4) Everyone that knows the situation thinks I'm an idiot, and I get no respect.5) Other women are starting to think of me as a toy that can be bought. Get a roommate that they aren't invested in, rent a room out. One bottle of wine on the couch reminiscing and watching an old sappy movie..pfffft. I wouldn't be jumping another man with my ex AND my kids in the house and as the ex would feel disrespected.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. And I'm sick to death of "for the kids" and similar. If you want to stop being friends with her over this, just do it. Seems to me that the purpose was not to cast a negative impression of anyone involved in the situation, but rather asking if the unusual circumstances would prevent people from developing a romantic relationship with either of the parents. The smart play is to walk away until circumstances that I feel more comfortable with arrive. Fall into Mum and Dad roles and parent together cos we do that already I honestly think we'd automatically go into "family mode" without even thinking about it... So I can see how it would be hard for anybody else to.
A girl-friend of mine and her husband got an amicable divorce. Divorced to me means you are now free and clear to meet other people and have a life. You divorced...little f*cking late to still ask for, or promote "benefits" after-the-fact. and it'd be pretty uncomfortable for other partners especially cos he and I dont argue. If it was a short term situation till one or the other moved out... As the man in Oz said, "Not noway, not nohow." There are plenty of people available who don't live with their exes.
This is a passive/aggressive way of keeping a connection to an ex-spouse.
They get to use the court system to punish you and, to stay connected with you.
They get along as friends just fine but could never make it work well as a couple. She and her ex-husband continue to live together because of finances and because of the kids. If she was still with her ex, platonic or otherwise...she'd be done on the spot. I guess the boyfriend must not want anything that might lead to cohabiting or marriage; at least I hope he doesn't, since he isn't going to get it.
O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall dating ex spouse be ashamed. It's easy to slide right back into old habits, but remember that the relationship you two had before didn't work, so trying again with a fresh approach can be helpful.2) The living arrangements mean automatically that there's *one* place the two of you can never hang out on a lazy day.And 3) I'd be super-sensitive to not wanting to send any confusing messages to the woman's kids. Heck until I checked out where you live I was afraid I was one of the people in this scenario.My question is this: would you date someone who is divorced but still living platonically with the ex-spouse? This applies to all dates as you don't want to date someone that is still in the past but especially important in this case because any outstanding issues would come out as they live together.I would say it isn't your business to interfere with your friends choices in life by posting about it. There is no way i would be able to have sex with her though in their house as that would be too weird for me and no doubt too weird for the ex. that seems like a level of complexity I probably wouldn't warm up to easily.
