Girlfriend got divorced


#1

My girlfriend got divorced, and today she called to tell me she is engaged to be married.

How should I respond to this?


#2

I'm thinking maybe she's not your girlfriend... and to be blunt... move on...


#3

I saw this coming from a distance, but it was still something of a surprise.

If I had been smarter, though, I would have detected the trend sooner.


#4

Well, you saw this one coming, and then BAM-it came.

Move on-she was never yours to begin with.


#5

I have to ask an obvious question......... Were you dating a Married woman?
It sounds like you were. No?
I hope the implication is wrong...
:confused:

In what sense is she your "girlfriend"? :confused:

(Are you male or female? That makes a difference, I think.)

She was MARRIED to get divorced, so she could not have been your girlfriend.

If she then is ENGAGED to someone else, she clearly is not your girlfriend.

Move on. Shake the dust from your feet, and MOVE ON. Don't look back.

She was never yours.

Don't. Ignore her forever, she's bad news.

I wondered that too, "girlfriend" is a common term for 2 women to use if they are BFFs, at least here in the South, but the username is Magick*man* so I think it's a male.

What, hows she your girlfriend?

I was assuming male, as well - but there is room for doubt.

Magikman, if you are this woman's best girlfriend, and if both of you are Catholic, then just quietly remind her that she needs to receive a Declaration of Nullity for the first marriage, before you can participate as her bridesmaid in the second wedding.

But yeah - if you're male, stop deluding yourself that she's in any way interested in you, and move on.

If you are a friend remind her nicely that she will need a declaration of nullity before she is free to date and that she should heal before jumping into something else.

If you were looking for something else - run quickly the other way.

Ditto. Learn from this, but don’t linger.
