Dating and hes disappeared
To outside observers, his serial monogamy might appear as a committed relationship, after all he’s dating exclusively.The problem with serial monogamy and mini-marriages is that he gets his physical, social, and emotional needs met but he’s still unclear about the future of the relationship; he still doesn’t know what he ultimately wants.Calling his ex-wife anything derogatory (next to signifying immaturity) often indicates that he may have strong feelings, even if they are Building on my last point…pay attention to how he refers to and interacts with his ex.
If he has qualms about her new love interest as it relates to her relationship’s impact on his and his ex-wife’s kids, that’s a different story.
It’s important to distinguish whether any feelings that do come up are actually about his ex or whether they are about the kids.
In fact, he shouldn’t be hesitant to introduce you to all the important people in his life (except maybe the kids but that depends on how long you have been dating and is a whole topic all on its own).
If you are dating someone who is separated, rather than divorced, this can be a tricky one.
When a man is separated, he may feel ready to move on but other people in his life, to whom he might still have obligations, may not be ready for him to do so.
He understands relationships, can maintain closeness and intimacy, communicate authentically and assertively, negotiate differences positively, allow myself to trust and be vulnerable, and can give and receive love without emotional barriers. Now, important caveat, this doesn’t mean he isn’t also one of those other things—it means he sees himself as available. If he calls her by her name or refers to her as “their mother”, there is a good chance that his mental attitude towards her is a healthy one.
