Ok so im recently divorced, but the marriage was over before we said I do. Anyways every time I start to like a guy the smallest things annoy me and I get freaked out. A big one is money, like if there really cheap about everything. Ive got two small kids. I cant afford a babysitter to go out and pay for my ticket to a movie. Or like they say something too mushy or sweet, I get grossed out and stop talking to them. I feel like I have too much baggage to be so picky about men but it sucks lowering standards all the time. I know I have low self esteem which is a major issue. But i cant afford a counselor and I dont have any friends I can talk to. I dont know I just feel lost and im scared my only options are to settle or be alone. I added the divorced part in there,wondering if this is a common reaction to be so turned off by such minor things?Answer Question

You should not settle for less because you deserve what you want in a man. You also should let the really small things go and instead of running when something doesn't seem right, ask more questions and just take your time to see if what you thought could have just been a misunderstanding. Sometimes we can over think things and it always helps to take a step back and look at everything first before making any final decisions.
