If he did travel with me, I would willingly pay for him.
However, men being men, he wanted to pay and this would frustrate him, and also frustrate me that he couldn't.
Having dated a divorced guy, I can speak from experience of what to do and the mistakes to avoid if you do decide to go down this path with a divorced guy, especially if they have kids.DATING MISTAKE 1: I ignored the signs of his opinion on kids.DATING MISTAKE 2: I got involved when he was still raging a war against his ex.TIP 2: Make sure that the divorced guy you are dating is over his ex and/or knows how to handle his emotions towards her.By moving in together within the first month, we both took a lot on.
I took on the new responsibility of not only getting used to living with him, but also being introduced to his children.
However the first 6 months there were a lot more hurdles to overcome, which led to the relationship breaking down.
Yes, I knew that he was divorced and had two children, but just knowing that he did want kids was to overcome the first hurdle of dating him.
In addition, he doubled his commuting time, which added more stress to the plate.
I believe that if we had taken our time, that things wouldn't have fallen apart so quickly as they did.
DATING MISTAKE 4: Chose to be with someone who financially was in a very different situation to me.
