As I sat with my closest girlfriends on our routine girls’ night out (GNO) one Saturday evening, the suspense at the table didn’t go unnoticed.
In my case, we haven’t really had any tension thus far. there are many people out there who have a child with their ex. Coming to terms with it depends on what the single (and childless) individual is willing to accept, all in the name of love and finding ‘the one’. Possessing the ideal qualities is what would make the final deal in him becoming a potential husband.
But today, women have their own careers, own their own homes, and are able to take care of themselves, so financial security and social status provided by older men is not a concern and does not mean as much.
The modern woman is looking for love and companionship from all arenas, someone she can have fun with, someone who treats her good while connecting on a strong mental and physical level, whereby age is not a distracting factor.
He canceled the day of because his youngest daughter had hit her head and he'd spent the previous night in the emergency room.
I totally understood why he had to cancel, but the situation also reminded me why he and I could never work and why I will never date a man with children again.
So, here are the facts, my feelings and how I deal with things.
