Each woman is connected to the man but they are not usually connected to each other. The gamut can run from two women who have known one another in the past, even possibly friends, to total strangers who are now connected to each other only by being attached in some way to the same man.
Floppy relationship triangles are essentially unstable and the outcomes are not only unpredictable, but often dire.
Any advice would be wonderful- thanks in advance for your response!
Dear Sara, We all make judgments based on our own experience.
What I’ve noticed is that no woman seems to want to touch me with a 10 foot pole because I’m ‘separated.’ My divorce is pending and will be finalized in September (it’s written better in the profile).
One woman proceeded to tell me “recently divorced people are somewhat unstable emotionally”.
I’m not looking to rush back into a marriage, but I’m looking to date with an intent on finding a relationship.
It’s what feels right for me and I feel ready for it.
They have given many examples of relationships that began quickly after a separation/break-up, so I am beginning to wonder if I am selling myself short – being too rigid.There are many factors that can affect these triangulated relationships, and how they are combined can affect the outcome in different ways.Time Elapsed A new separation is clearly more undefined.And with the prevalence of cheating, a lot of times one partner has already begun a new relationship and the other partner is now seeking to get 'mine.' Once it's been decided by one, or both, partners to end the relationship, most typically both of partners start seeking a new relationship. If you really care about your new love interest then you'll apply more reason than emotion to your decision about dating while separated.Being separated and not dating is one of the hardest temptations to resist. You'll also make your decision about more than just what you want.Though there are multiple variations on the theme, there is one way in which they all are similar: two women are in a competitive triangle with the same man.
