So unless he was completely cavalier about seeking sex outside his marriage, your divorced boyfriend has likely experienced a period of sexual deprivation in the not-so-distant past.
What I’m getting at is that he will be duly grateful if you’re a badass in bed.
I’m not suggesting that anyone give up on happiness -- just that we broaden our idea of who or what might lead us there.
As someone who’s been dating a divorcé for some time now, I can assure you that there are benefits to landing a man who’s signed a few more legal documents than the next guy.
When you hear the word divorce, even if you aren't divorced yourself, I would bet that almost instantly you conjure up images of pain and tears, of yelling and courtrooms, of kids with backpacks, of lawyers and paperwork, of anger and sadness. Statistics tell us that divorce is the second highest stressor after the death of a spouse. The only difference, which can make it more unnerving to walk through, is that the spouse is still alive and well in the world, and you must continue at times to interact with him.
But a divorce is the death of a marriage and the death of your dream for it.
Perhaps you want to be the love is the sticky, finger-licking-good-to-a-sickening-degree kind.
