I've always been interested in backpacking but my W has never been the outdoor type so I have never embarked on a backpacking back country expedition. I still wanted to reconcile and try every last thing before throwing in the towel.That could be why our viewpoints are so diff on the subject.I do know that this has lowered any chance there was that I will want to reconcile with my spouse, but when I left, I had no intention of getting back together with her anyway.I had this exact conversation with a friend of mine this morning; she's one of the few people I confided to with regards to how I was feeling in my marriage in the past few years.
What are your opinions on dating during a separation.
If the new chick was around so soon after you left her/checked out, she will prob spend the rest of her life thinking that was the nail in the coffin to your relationship with her. I'm thinking a year is the minimum amount of time before anything serious should be thought about.
Part of my issue is that many of my friends are married couples.
I am spent; I am ready for some peace in my life - I am grieving two years in a row now. At least wait six months and see where you are emotionally. BL, I think it's a great idea to take your me time! As I said, I was expecting to do that, but sometimes life takes funny turns...
827's comment on checking with a lawyer is a good one... But when is the acceptable time, if she was to hear through the grapevine? 827, were you saying that you can't find someone decent to date just because you're separated but not married?
