Triangles are stable when all three legs are connected.What that means in a three-way relationship is that each day is securely connected.After twenty years of marriage, Dinesh filed for divorce October 4 of this year.However, according to World Magazine, on September 28, the week before he filed, he traveled with Denise Joseph to an event where he introduced her to some people as his fiancée.Divorcing clients are often lonely and stressed out, and they may be longing to meet someone new, feel desirable again, and just have fun.So, many clients decide that just one date can’t hurt.
Dear Sara, We all make judgments based on our own experience.You had too much going on during your divorce to possibly consider dating. This same script, I’m reminded, played out in the life of one of my favorite clients who fell in love with a separated man.Therefore, you seem to think all men should feel the same way. But you are correct in proceeding with a sense of caution. Not because he listed himself as divorced but is really separated. He gave a lot to her during their time together, but, when it got right down to it, he really needed to sow his oats for awhile.This is one of the most common dilemmas my patients have brought to me over the past four decades.Though there are multiple variations on the theme, there is one way in which they all are similar: two women are in a competitive triangle with the same man.
