No one ever tells you what it’s really like to date someone who was previously married. No one tells you that you’ll end up mindfucking yourself and potentially psych yourself into making mistakes you had planned on never making. No one tells you, you will create all these stupid ideas and scenarios to find comfort. No one tells you that you need to mentally assert yourself that he loves you and only you over and over. No one tells you that you’ll see stuff from his previous marriage from time-to-time. No one tells you how after you see those things from his previous marriage you’ll be swarmed with sadness, insecurity, and sometimes hope. And if you’re in love (and know you’re getting married but not yet) with this man who was previously married, no one tells you how many times you’re going to wonder when it will happen.
No one tells you what it’s really like to date a man who was previously marrried.
