I receive lots of emails from women, many without children, asking questions about dating single dads. The common problem is meeting his children – specifically, why won’t he let her meet them, why he avoids, or goes hot and cold, about meeting them, and similar. It seems for many of these women, meeting his kids is a really big deal.
If you’re a divorced parent, there’s a good chance your life is often unbalanced, confused, and out of harmony. You perhaps live as a contradiction and even a hypocrite. At the same time, your life feels strengthened, focused, and contented. You live with self-acceptance, and at times, in truth.
It’s always amazed me that second marriages end in statistically higher rates of divorce. I would think that enduring perhaps the most difficult time in a persons’ life might leave a more lasting impression.
The Queen and I first met at a bar. It’s not something we advertise. Similar stories usually end in hook ups and poorly.
Many years ago, in another life, long before the Queen, I met a woman during a business conference. She was blessed with black hair and hazel eyes that would bring a good man to his knees. Introduced through a mutual colleague, we got to know each other between breakout sessions and cocktail hours.
