Im dating a man going through a divorce
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.
Prior to our meeting, I had mentioned that I had some news to share.
Of course, I was also nervous that my guy would analyse me. There will be many challenges and the occasional stress factors involved, but if he’s really worth getting to know… Like I said, many more single people have children now, and, while some people have strict rules about wanting someone, who may be like them, single and childless, dating a single parent isn’t akin to the plague. I knew exactly what they were thinking, as I spoke about my newfound love interest, and him bussing the file that he had a kid.
All you need to do is take a deep breath, and make sure you can handle all the other variables that come along with this relationship. Wasn’t I the same person who vowed to never date a man with a child? There are other men who are single, childless and worth getting to know. I was up for the challenge, and decided to give it shot.
As the words tumbled from my mouth, all three gave me ‘the look’.
