I dated David 20 yrs ago and he broke up with me. I moved on. I got married, had two amazing kids, and for whatever reasons, ended up getting divorced from my kids dad. So,,,David comes back into the pic 20 yrs later, here I am a single mom. I have been raising my kids on my own for 7 yrs. I have been so careful about who I have dated and keeping it seperate from my kids, including David, who was so bent on meeting my kids! Is it bad timing, or is it not the right guy, maybe its a combo of both. Its hard being a single parent alone for going on 7 yrs, I cant even explain it, but my kids, even though they are teens now, still come first. I guess I have to say goodbye to David, before he even gets to meet my kids, but I know Im doing the right thing as a paretAnswer Question

As parents especially a single parent we want to protect our children from everything. Having this guy wanting to meet your children is his way to say he wants to take whatever is going on with you both to the next level. If you don't feel in your heart that you want this man to stick around then say your goodbyes and let him know that you are just not comfortable with what is going on between you two. If this has something to do with you personally that your scared that your children will not approve of you dating someone. I know plenty of single parents that have meant someone and starting dating them have meant there children and there children still come first.
My DD comes before anyone even her father.
