It's possible you don't meet them for a while for this reason, because even your new significant other knows they will pepper you with questions like you're on a second interview.
As possibly the first new relationship since the end of her marriage, you may find yourself as a rebound, someone who was the right guy at the right time, but maybe not a long-term partner.
For me, this was because of the dog my ex and his ex-wife used to share.
Every other week, they would hand-off the dog like it was a small child, during which she and I would make polite but totally forced small talk in the apartment they once shared together. If there are actual kids involved in this former union, well that's an entire — and far more complex —story.
A divorcing woman may be quite reluctant to jump right into a serious relationship, so be prepared to take things slowly and casually, or know going in that this could very well be a short-term fling.
On the other hand, she may be quite eager to dive into a relationship, particularly if her marriage had been a cold and unhappy one.
Because a divorcing woman may have children, any new man will have to be aware that the kids may be very confused about their mom seeing someone else and not know exactly how to feel about you.
