Getting divorced in NC is a PIA. I understand your position. Most people who live in NC get it though — having gotten divorced in NC. There’s “separated” and then there’s “NC separated” which is divorced without the benefit of a judge’s decree and costs you extra attorney and filing fees.
Hang in there. Life gets better. And dating isn’t really all that great. Let The Universe bring you the people you are meant to have in your life and ditch the internet. Trust me on that one. 😊.
