What should you know about dating a divorced guy? Is it really THAT much more different than dating a man who has never been married? After all, they're both guys and the bottom line is, they are presently single. It's strange how the "label" of being divorced gets a negative reaction for some people, and that somehow there must have been something "wrong" with the person. Divorce is often viewed as a failure, because for many, marriage is supposed to last forever. This is complete myth in my opinion, because there are many long-term relationships that "fail". So just because a couple said their vows in front of friends and family, it doesn't mean that there's something wrong with them, when their marriage comes to an end.
Don't be jealous of the relationship with his ex or his kids.

Those seeking the help of a professional matchmaking service are TIRED of the results their getting from online dating. If someone is single, it just means that they haven't met the right person...yet. There are millions of singles and the ones who have been in long-term loving relationships, were SINGLE at one point. It's crazy to feel that there is something wrong with YOU, or another person just because they are single. The association to being married as being "normal" is changing in today's society. Many people enjoy being single and when they are ready to look, the attitude should always be positive, open and honest.
