Regardless of who initiated the divorce, emotions may weigh heavy and feel painful while grieving occurs.
Signs you may be his transition relationship include him telling you he loves you or you are “The One” after just a few dates, him acting hot and cold, him asking to move in with you, and him wanting to make his ex jealous or acting bitter toward her.
These are all indicators that your relationship is not the real deal, and, while this reality stings, it is not about you.
It shows he has a lot of work to do to process his divorce, and it’s best to stop dating him if you are looking for a genuine lasting connection.
You can learn a lot about him by listening to what he says of his marriage and his ex-wife and how he views his role in the marriage ending.
You can be a supportive listener while also setting appropriate boundaries if you are uncomfortable.
Understand he has a past that may resurface, but his previous marriage does not have to bring up insecurities in you.
