"Hands down, the best book there is on dating separated and divorced men." -An Amazon reader

"This book is a MUST READ for anyone considering dating a man who is either separated, divorcing, divorced, or still married but shopping for a girlfriend." -Selena, dating a separated man

"Thanks so much for your book. It really, really helped…. it gives much needed perspective." -Karen, dating a divorcing man

Dating a single dad but unsure how to go about it?
Met a separated man and wondering if he's ready to date?
Tired of having your relationship ruled by his ex-wife?

You need this book!

In today's world, separated and divorced men comprise nearly 40% of available men. However, these men differ from the typical single bachelors you're used to dating–they can come with many unexpected challenges, such as children, difficult ex-wives, substantial financial obligations, and unresolved grief, guilt, or anger.

After 10 years of conducting research and coaching women dating separated and divorced men, psychologist and dating expert Dr. Christie Hartman has gathered every challenge these men can offer and put them into one easily-digested book. Christie will show you how to:

* Identify challenges that "come with the territory" vs. those that are deal-breakers
* Recognize when his ex isn't over him… or when he isn't over her
* Avoid becoming a rebounding man's "transitional woman"
* Evaluate whether marriage to a divorced man is the right choice for you

The 2nd edition of Dating the Divorced Man — called "even more brilliant than the first" — tackles more challenges, such as:

* What a Divorced Husband is, and why he will make you miserable
* How to know when a relationship with a divorced man is worth fighting for, and when it's time to say goodbye
* Why some divorced men struggle, while others thrive

Whether in a stable situation or a difficult one, Christie leaves no stone unturned when it comes to succeeding with separated and divorced men.

Dating a divorced guy is not easy. I dated a great-but-damaged-guy for six months, read this book about two months in, found it insightful, and thought everything was good. I was the happiest I had ever been and he told me he was happy, too. Then I got blindsided by a breakup – completely out of the blue! He said he “wasn’t emotionally invested”, so basically he’d been faking it with me for months.

Unbelievably accurate

Christie is so spot on with everything she brings up that I had to hold back from highlighting the whole book! From everything to “the 3 types of ex-wives” to “pros and cons of being a step mom.” This book has brought up possible relationship issues that I had never considered but could totally foresee becoming problems once my boyfriend and I move in together. Helped me to realize what my role will be as a step mom and the boundaries I will assume for myself. And also, boundaries I should expect from my boyfriend and his kids. Now I just need to get my boyfriend to read this book. And at the very least, I will be discussing the points Christie makes to be sure we are on the same page before we get more serious. After reading this book I can now see why second marriages end in a higher divorce rate.

A really good read!!

I loved that this book didn’t tell me what I should or shouldn’t do because everyone is different. It gave me different ways to look at the “issues/baggage” and figure out if it was worth the effort to stick through it or if I should just let him know it wasn’t working. I would recommend this to any woman who is dating or thinking about dating a divorced man, especially if children are involved.

I’m really glad I found this book

I’m really glad I found this book. It gives you advice depending on what stage of his divorce he’s in. You’ll know if you should stay or if you should run. You’ll know if you are a rebound and if he’s really over his ex. It’s a quick and educational must read no matter what stage you are at in dating a divorced man.

Good book for anyone looking for a little extra guidance …

I found this book to be very helpful. It touched upon many topics women tend to face when dating a divorced man. From finances, children, dealing with ex wives, etc. Good book for anyone looking for a little extra guidance if you feel stuck in your current situation.

The advice I found here was pretty spot-on. It didn’t prevent me from being some a-hole’s rebound person, but it did warn me that it would probably happen just the way it did.

A must read!

I found this book to be very helpful! I couldn’t put it down once I started. My now ex-boyfriend exhibited so many traits where I should have walked away. He tried to justify everything and made me believe it was all in my head, especially when he had conversations with his ex-wife. I wish I had found this book sooner instead of wasting more of my time than what was necessary.

Input vs. Output: how to tell if the divorced man is worth it

By S. Librarian
This is a great practical guide that helps you anticipate and evaluate whether or not a separated or divorced man and his baggage are what you can carry for a rewarding romance or not. It also does not denigrate either party’s decisions.

It just covers basic stuff. Atleast I did not find any new or deeper advice.

The most realistic book I have recently read!

This book changed my life overnight! I wish I had read it 9 months ago, when I started such relationship… and I am still in the middle of what the author describes…
