Divorced Date: How can I respond to man that asked me out but is going through a divorce?

Q: A man asked me to meet him for dinner. He is in the process of a divorce but it hasn’t been finalized yet.  I feel uncomfortable with the situation of the divorce not being final, but I am definitely interested in getting to know him better.  How do I tell him this without making him think I’m not interested in him.


A: The definition of a date is two people getting together to enjoy each other’s company.  Going on a date doesn’t mean that one or both parts of the couple have romantic overtures in mind.  You should just be upfront and tell him that you feel uncomfortable with his divorce not being final but that once it is, you would like to get to know him better.  Honesty is the best policy.
