It’s soapbox time.
Generally speaking, I have no problem that my married friends are married, or other friends are in serious relationships. This gripe does not come from that corner of the Single Gal’s mind. It comes from this: why (and how?) are the currently-divorcing people already dating?
I know a significant handful of people whose divorces are not final (and the ink may still be wet on the original complaint!), and yet they are dating other people already!
I have a fundamental issue with the fact that they are technically still married … but that aside, I feel like it’s selfish and greedy! Technically, you are detaining 2 people from the dating world at one time! So in what universe are you entitled to have more than your share of datable people?
Until your divorce is final, you shouldn’t be poaching available people. Legitimately single people should have the first opportunity here.
That is all.
