Dating mother 2
Her 13yo is good friends with, and in the same class at school, as my niece.The girls know me as Uncle X and we have met on multiple occasions at my brother’s I am a widower and never had kids.A annual membership gives you an all-access pass.You can be a part of every call, group, class, and community. But if you take away who we are as people, what remains is our differing positions in life; I’m a single mother and he’s a childless dude.
She has been separated for 2 years, divorced for 1, and we have been dating 9 months.Our benchmarks as a couple are totally different, the obvious being your relationship with my child. If anything, I am more vulnerable because I am more serious about my time and my relationships.Just like shared hobbies and travel experiences can help bond two people, your relationship with my son helps bond me with you. When you treat me well, you’re treating my kid well. This is the one that ties a neat bow around the whole thing.While our coupled friends are planning to run a marathon together, I’m still trying to find a babysitter for our date next week. But I have a guard up to protect not one, but two people.We don’t even have the freedom to make love, cuddle, and sleep next to each other whenever we so desire. If I get hurt, I don’t function well, and that affects my parenting, which in turn affects my child, and all I want to do is protect my child. I’ve acquired a lot of strength and resilience in life, but it doesn’t mean that my vulnerability to love has waned.
I am looking for advice, insight, and some first hand experiences from the parents and from the kids that have been through this.
