Cam, I found a real nice girl from my work place. We have been dating for the past year. Until her, I tried a couple dating sites and meet some very nice girls. But, I have been a very hard person to date since the divorce. I let people get only so close before I would run. I hurt alot of people during this transition period, so I quit dating and worked on me. I felt maybe I was rushing into the dating scene. Since the ex was already on her second man, I thought I should be ready also, but I dont think I was. The woman I am dating now has been through these up and downs with me with God given patience and understanding. Lately she has asked me where our relationship was going in the future, which freaked me out.
She stated she didn't want to waste her time with someone who has doubts about the relationship moving forward in the future. She stated that she didn't expect to get married tomorrow, but somewhere down the road. We talked about the statistics of a second marriage, ect. I just don't want to go through this experience ever again. I think that is normal
Her and I came to a mutual agreement and she was content.......for now
I am the proud father of two wonderful kids and I am trying to be the best Dad that I can. They seem to be adjusting very well. They have a mother and a father who love them very much, but they just dont live together anymore. My son, who is 14yrs old, does not like my ex's new man. It bothers me because he is with mom alot more than dad so that means he is around this guy alot
I have told him that he doesn't have to like him, but that he needs to respect him. I explained that if his mother likes him, and he is going to be around, he needs to make the best of it. They get along great with my gf, so there is no issue there. That is my update. Great hearing from you and I hope things are heading in the right direction for you.
