Dating a divorced man with kid
There is this huge part of his life I have no place in. I’m hopeful this will change once I’ve met the children.Until the divorce is finalised, we’ve decided it’s best that they don’t know about me, but I long for the day when I can attend his daughter’s assembly or his son’s football match – to share our lives with each other completely.Naively, I imagined that when he took them on holiday or away for the weekend, I’d talk to him every day.But he didn’t have the mental capacity to speak to me when he was with them.Ladies, as much as we love men (and, I really do), we want to acknowledge that they can often mature, grow up and find their way in a relationship a bit more slowly than women do.
I also expected regular phone calls when we were apart.But I’ve had to accept the fantasy of doing it afresh with someone is over; life doesn’t come packaged neatly into the boxes you want.After 30, most people come with some sort of baggage. The fact that Dan was going through complicated divorce proceedings when we met again through work last year made me very reluctant to get involved.I have found that men who have been married are a bit more structured and familiar with the little things.They seem to naturally have more of a routine and offer to do things that a lot of men who have never been married would not think to do for another person.
