How to Tell An Ex-Spouse You're Dating
How to Tell An Ex-Spouse You're Dating | Our Everyday Life
It just sort of happened. In discussing this topic with my female friends, it seems to me that men are especially experienced in dealing with this dilemma. Say a friend of mine breaks up with so-and-so, and we run into her at a party. In some ways this is perfectly natural.
'My best friend told my husband I cheated. After we divorced, she started dating him.'
Our relationship was full of surprises. Afterwards, Mel's manager Howard asked me out for a drink. They were leaving town the next day, and there was no chance our lives ever would have intersected if Howard hadn't seized that moment to make his move. I showed up to meet him that night, and found a surprise waiting—Mel came along on our date. We had a lot of laughs, but Mel got serious on the way home—telling me I should marry Howard and move to California.
All that instead mattered were the negatives that your ex continuously reinforced. So when your ex started feeling this way, you were still unaware of the fact that your ex is thinking about dating someone else and is already standing with one foot out of the relationship. All that he or she needed to break up was for someone to ask him or her out—or for you to make one final mistake and push him or her over the edge.
