Dating recently separated woman dating someone who was sexually abused as a child

I developed a very close and strictly platonic relationship with a Mom from one of my children’s athletic teams.

We had lunches, coffee, and even hung out with her husband.

If you come across as a normal human being and not an over-sexualized creep during the first conversation, well, then you are already ahead of the curve.

We started talking, then texting, and he told me straight-up that he'd been separated for six months. I would text him something funny to start off the day, and we would spend the majority of the day talking about what made each other tick. We shared the little things, the childhood things, the adult things, the big things.

If you have to bite your tongue until it bleeds, don't do it.

That was my first mistake, especially since I hadn't been in the dating game since Tinder even existed. He also said his mind was made up and he'd moved on. We connected and spent a few hours sipping beer and chatting. Him: married, seperated from the woman he had been with for more than eight years, with whom he shared a son. He also loved making plans that he had no intention of following through on. Maybe it was the night that he texted me, "Home with the ex and baby tonight. It was the way I wondered if they were sharing a bed. He traveled a good deal, so we had dinners, our children, her, and I.She helped me with decorating, picking out clothes, and cooking…. She's going to want to hit all the rides at Disneyland. You'll walk around with your stomach balled up in knots every time you think about her, but then, that's nothing new. Don't make her work TOO hard, but hard enough to feel as though she's accomplished something of value when she finally "wins" you. But you won't be able to hold her, and it'll drive you crazy. Hold on too tight, appear to care too much, and she'll be gone for good. At some point, she'll get through this phase and seek stability in her life. When it's over, you want her to recognize you as the one man who stood by her when her life was in turmoil. Make her do the work to establish the relationship.

Miss A, I am writing to you so that I can get some advice.
