Childless woman dating single dad sex dating in etra new jersey
What it boiled down to was having kids made scheduling things a bit difficult. And that really sucked – because there were a couple of times when I caught myself thinking about how I could dodge my responsibilities as a dad…
I found myself repeatedly telling people “I’m sorry – I’d love to go to the movies tonight, but I’ve got the kids here… I realise this all sounds like a very long-winded whinge, but there is good news.
I have been dating a wonderful man for about four months now.
We’ve known each other almost 20 years prior to dating, and the transition to an amorous relationship was easy and natural.
To be honest, there’s the fact that I have almost entirely forgotten how to meet women – and to be completely honest, I was never all that good at it anyway.
So when it came time to re-introduce myself to polite society (ie, stop being a morose old man, sitting at home and feeling sorry for myself), I was completely stumped. A mate of mine told me to try Tinder, which I did, and wish I hadn’t.
I know it works well for some people – and given that there were entire weekends when I wasn’t responsible for looking after the kids, it seemed like a great idea.
I think he wants that too, but I don’t know if 4 months is too early to expect that of him because he needs to move slower than a childless man.
What if I meet someone who I really like, and the boys don’t like her?
Worse still, what if I meet someone that we all really like – and then there’s another break up if that relationship sours?
We talk daily (if he has his son it’s usually by text, otherwise we chat by phone in the evenings), he makes it a point to see me once a week and we always have so much fun together.
When we are together things are easy and fun, just as they should be!
