How do you define yourself? I’m asking for your opinion, if you don’t mind sharing.
If you’re divorced and back in the dating world, do you say you’re SINGLE or DIVORCED? Guys, what do you say? Do you say single or divorced? Because…
I have divorced women friends who say they’re single.
I have divorced women friends who say they’re divorced.
The ones who define themselves as single after a divorce don’t understand why the ones who say they’re divorced don’t say they’re single and vice versa. So I’m putting it out there to you.
If you’re in that situation, what do you say?
If someone asked me, I’d say divorced instead of single because to me, divorced says I was once married (and maybe even implies I have kids) while single seems like I was never married, nor had kids. Although to me, divorced also states the failure of a marriage contract, which is defining as well. Is my reasoning too simplistic? Does it really matter anyway?
On a side note, what do you think of when you hear someone is single or divorced? Does single (after a divorce) mean something different that I’m not aware of? Is there some unspoken rule that I don’t know? Does single not define if you’re divorced or never married? So there’s an air of mystery?
Anyway, I’m just wondering what you think about the single vs divorce. You don’t have to be divorced or single to chime in the discussion in the comments. I love to hear from everyone! Thanks for taking the time to talk about it!
