Single dad dating again no nonsense christian dating
While our coupled friends are planning to run a marathon together, I’m still trying to find a babysitter for our date next week. But I have a guard up to protect not one, but two people.
We don’t even have the freedom to make love, cuddle, and sleep next to each other whenever we so desire. If I get hurt, I don’t function well, and that affects my parenting, which in turn affects my child, and all I want to do is protect my child. I’ve acquired a lot of strength and resilience in life, but it doesn’t mean that my vulnerability to love has waned.
Do you have any tips for how I can proceed so I don't blow it?

When you’re dating me, those experiences are few and far between.
And hey, tell your married friends to quit smirking.
