How Could They Move On So Quickly?

  1. Those or just a heartless narcissist.

  2. I’m not sure where I picked this up, but it makes sense to a certain degree — most men are not going to move on until they have either found a replacement or have a replacement in mind. A marriage counselor looked at me and told me something similar, although it was a bit mean to say to me. He said that ALL men only want a divorce because they are having an affair or are anticipating an affair.

    There are several items in your list that I can relate to. It’s been less than a year for me and I started dating right away, but am glad that I did not just jump in to a full commitment right after divorce. I am still learning about myself, as well as learning what I need in a relationship at this point in my life. I’m trying to be careful, trying to limit the potential mistakes.

      Yikes. I’m not sure about ALL men, but I’ve read many studies that discuss how men are more likely to jump into another’s arms right away. I suspect some of that is because of how society frowns upon vulnerable men seeking support from counselors or same-gender friends.

      It sounds like you’re doing things right:)
