I think the term depends on one's personal preference. You can be single once you've separated, and divorced when someone inquires about your relationship history. Or not, if you choose not to divulge.

For those of you who have been divoriced how long did you refer to yourself as divoriced? At what point do you call say " I'm single, etc" You can't call youself divoriced forever. Just curious I've seen people maintain call themselves divoriced year's after thier marriage was finished.
It would be weird to me if a guy said: I am divorced instead of I am single.

Divorced is more about your personal HISTORY, not about your current identity. When there is talk about your history, you are divorced. When it's about who you are, it's "single".
