Some forums can only be seen by registered members. I'm currently dating a separated woman, 37 years old with a child. She has been separated for a little less than a year but the divorce is not filed yet. We met at a dating site. Anyway, we have gone out on dates twice, and everything is low key.

Dating a Man Who Is Separated but Not Yet Divorced? | Psychology Today
Most women who date will encounter those types at some point, but I never attracted them. Or, more likely, they reached out to me and I unwittingly ignored them. I never dated a married man who was looking for some on-the-sly side action. I never dated someone who was still living with his wife and unhappy in the marriage, but uncertain what his next steps would be. To be clear, I have met and dated several men who were married but separated. Though both types of men may be married officially, their intentions are very different.

As usual, I was time-challenged so it was too late to make a U-turn and cancel. It was just straightforward, open-ended and once I asked it, I shut up and listened very carefully to his response. Look, we are not 25 anymore with relatively clean slates.
Being married, but separated, is no picnic. It is, for lack of a better word, embarrassing. Really embarrassing. I struggle enough with the fact that my marriage came to an end after just a year and a half, that my husband cheated on me, and left me for a girl 28 years his junior, just two years older than his daughter from a previous marriage.
