When you have a child, it’s easier to date someone else who has children.
They usually understand if you have to bail at the last minute because your child is sick, they like children (because they already have them), and they understand why a child can turn from an angel into a sobbing heap on the floor within 10 seconds.
This includes school plays (which he attended with me when my daughter was recently in one) to birthday parties. But if my ex was/is dating another woman who could possibly be my daughter’s stepmother, I would for sure want to meet her, at least once, to make sure that my daughter is safe.One of his children has an upcoming birthday party. My daughter, her safety and her happiness, will always be my first priority, just as I’m sure that’s my boyfriend’s ex-wife priority. Still, I do have to make nice with this woman, for my boyfriend’s children’s sakes, and for my boyfriend.As we slowly blend our families together, I don’t want there to be any drama. Do I think if we can get along at least politely it will be best for the children? So I talked to Heather Hetchler, of Cafe Smom, a site for stepmothers to find support, discuss issues, and help each other through the ups and downs of being a stepparent.My ex’s ex-wife (the one with no children) actually wanted to meet and hang out with me. ” But if I do plan on being a stepmom with my new man, I do understand why I may have to meet my boyfriend’s ex-wife. Thousands upon thousands of readers have chipped in and found solace in her site.(Even I admit to “creeping” around sometimes.) Still, it makes me uncomfortable, especially when exes of the man I am dating, or the men I have dated, check me out.
My boyfriend and I are serious, to the point where we both would like to be included in every aspect of each other’s lives.I like designer bags but I don’t necessarily like baggage. At my age, it’s more likely than not that anyone I would date/end up with has baggage.It’s a term I don’t like because when you find the right guy, his baggage doesn’t seem so much like “baggage” as it does a “pretty package.” For example, before I met the man I’m now dating, I made it perfectly clear to any man I went out with that I come as a package.I thought God was looking down on me, finally, when I fell in love.Plus, his ex lives a 40-minute drive away, is not in my social circle, and we didn’t have any friends in common.YOU are the one deciding when you can accept it and move on. As far as WHY you can’t get over your ex-wife, there are several possible reasons.
