"Currently Separated" The New Online Dating Dilemma

We all know by now that online dating is a modern and widely accepted way to meet people. We can search for soulmates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We can post a picture of ourselves at our best yet be sitting behind the computer searching for studs while we are wearing last night’s hair and makeup and sporting our unsexiest jammy jams. Fabulous!


There is one aspect of online dating, however, that I’m struggling to understand. This is more prevalent online than it has been for me in real life, as I don’t tend to meet men with this relationship status roadblock. The stymieing status is that of “currently separated.”

What Does "Currently Separated" Mean?

What does it mean? Are you still in love with your ex but she left you?? Are you hoping for reconciliation or is the divorce being held up in the costly court system???

I have not been contacting any of the men who contact me with that relationship status. I am single, clearly ready to mingle and am also baggage free. I have room to make someone a priority and am hoping to establish a real connection with them. I want to be in a relationship. I do not want to be someone’s rebound!

Tinder: Is It Time To Move On?

By

I used to host speed dating events. On any given night, forty to fifty people would show up hoping to meet someone amazing within the span of a four-minute date. It was kind of a strange idea at first— meeting twenty guys in one evening to see if anyone had potential. But it was efficient. I sifted through more and more guys each week who ... Read more
