I'm curious to see how other moms handle dating. Ive been divorced since Late 2010. My daughters are now 5 and 6. I made the mistake of getting remarried to someone in late 2011 (I say mistake because ,although I was happy and faithful, he was not). SO, that leaves me with divorce number two. I do not bring my girls around guys that I am dating except for this very recent one. However, that did not work out either. He was a divorced single father and my daughters and his daughter ....well, we all moved in together and all of us girls were happy, and dint see the breaking up and moving out of his place happening.
THis very last one that I spoke of, he feels that he cannot be in a relationship but has to devote his entire being to his daughter. Thats great. But what about the happiness of being with someone, working together, sharing together, blending a family. I love and miss having 'family' so much. Is he choosing the better route in life by not getting back into a relationship until his daughter is out of highschool (like his mother did), am I going about this the wrong way by wanting a relationship with someone? Im at a loss.
My daughters father is happily with someone and is settling down. Although I am the one who wanted the divorce because of him, I feel like I am being looked at like theres something wrong with me. Why cant I have the happiness of a good relationship...
