Relationship advice dating a separated man

dating a separated man advice - , there is a big difference between dating a person who is recently separated (meaning it just happened two months ago and their soon-to-be ex just moved out last week), and a person who has been separated and living apart from his or her ex for two years. I'd guess there are many threads here talking about dating a separated man , i heard a long time ago not to do that as separated is not single and i feel maybe that was good advice. I thought i'd passed up a couple good opportunities for dating, maybe they weren't interested enough, or maybe i didn't let them know i might be interested out of loyalty to this guy. A more accurate term for 'separated' in most of these cases would really be 'separating,' since few of these people are actually through their divorces or have completely ended their previous relationships.
