We go into relationships with the best of intentions. But it can also be hurtful to the one who ends up being the transition person. I’m just suggesting that you understand their needs now may differ from their needs down the road. Sometimes, without anyone’s fault, we end up becoming a transition person. It can be very helpful to the one who is going through a divorce or mourning the loss of a loved one. Look Before You Leap Now, I am not here to discourage anyone from dating someone who may need a transition person, is going through a divorce, or suffering the loss of a loved one. It’s quite likely that you don’t know exactly what you want when your life is in transition and your emotions are at an all-time high. The “Transition Person” Like it or not, we sometimes need a transition person to help us through our life changes, divorces or breakups. It can help both singles grow as they get back into the dating scene. Sometimes our relationships end abruptly through death or betrayal. Whatever the reason you find yourself single now, it’s important to heal and understand that it does take time for you to be ready to get involved with someone new. You sign up for an online dating site, hoping to find someone to ease the pain and help you move on.He’s Scared of Love This may come as a shock, but that tough, rugged man you’re dating gets scared of things, too.And like most other men in the world, he’s probably scared of love and long term relationships.I spent many years being a transition person to a man I loved very much who was going through a divorce. The distraction of the legal issues, if going through a divorce, may linger on for longer than anyone would expect. In order to enjoy your time in your new relationship, it’s important to communicate these issues when you first start dating. Maybe Is every transition person only there for the time being?
He’s not doing those cute things he used to do and it almost seems like he doesn’t want to be in a relationship anymore. Here’s 10 common reasons why men pull away from women.1.

Some singles will not date a man or woman whose status is “separated.” While there isn’t a category of “separated, divorce pending” to select from, if you are not legally divorced, you are still married and may be unavailable. More often than not, a transition relationship will run its course. It is more common in cases of a difficult divorce than in an amicable divorce or the loss of a spouse.
The guy who broke my heart couldn’t imagine life without me. I know of many happily married couples that met shortly after one’s spouse had passed away.
I have been taking care of myself, losing weight, etc. He has never said one unkind word, never have I felt any kind of threat from him. I am so sorry I didn't leave sooner but you have to muster up the courage. I did find out that even though I had spent those 3 years happy and healthy that it isn’t until you add someone else to your life that you start to notice your baggage, big or small. I also kept a watchful eye on the one who I was dating and pretty sure would have ran at the first sign of trouble, (probably still would) but that isn’t necessarily all bad.
and I'm starting to like the way I look and feel again. Even though there are struggles, I try to trust that I’ve learned from the past and try to enjoy what is.
