dating a guy who has been engaged

About me:
Getting serious with a man who's been engaged before--or know a gal who is? Then you'll want to read this. If he proposed to someone in the past, the dude clearly doesn't fear commitment. So if marriage is your priority, you're likely in luck unless his last experience turned him off marriage totally. Lots of factors could've broken the engagement, but it's possible that your man proposed before the relationship had made it to the next level. And he may move too fast again.

I've been seeing this amazingly awesome guy for almost six weeks. Two weeks ago he dropped a bomb on me I understand, being in my late 20s, that this is bound to have happened to people dating a guy who has been engaged I meet. However, this breakup is still somewhat recent. It happened at the beginning of December. His wedding was supposed to be this past Sunday. Apparently they really jumped the gun on their relationship. They were engaged after six months of dating, moved in together after seven months and barely made it together a year before it all came crashing down.

We met online, chatted for awhile, and then exchanged numbers. At the time, we were both single and not looking for relationships, so it became a friends-with-benefits situation. We never really brought each other into our lives, like meeting friends, etc. He lives about half an hour away from me. W e hooked up the day before he posted this. I need help!

When it comes to dating after divorce, the opposite of a divorced guy is a guy who has never been married! In my opinion, sometimes it feels like they are from different planets! Someone who is divorced depending on his age most likely has kids, which means he will feel a little bit more comfortable with your kids. Remember, there are some guys who have never been married who have kids, and there are some guys who have never been married but have dated a lot of women with kids, so they might be used to being around kids. There are also divorced guys who have never had kids. I find that a divorced guy, who has his own kids has a certain ease around children.

This is a fairly simple question. I've been with my boyfriend for about 5 months and I love him. He is older than me and 5 years ago he was engaged. They ended up not getting married because she wasn't ready to give up her life of partying, as he says. They haven't spoken in 5 years but sometimes when she comes up in conversation it bothers me to no end that he was once engaged.
