The littlest thing that was said in passing, months before, is suddenly brought up again as a supposed glaring infraction on our part.
We want you to trust us so we aren’t always walking on eggshells.
Watching the successes and failures of my married friends’ relationships got me thinking; what exactly am I and other single dads looking for in our potential mates?
But once I suddenly had her half the time, it became almost impossible for us to make plans together.
She had children too, so trying to balance both of our schedules and find evenings that we were both kid-free just put more and more stress on our relationship.
Easy or not, the majority of those four years, I was battling some fairly serious depression and anxiety due primarily to the minimal time I was able to spend with my daughter and the ongoing conflict with her mother.
Because of this, finding a potential partner to have a serious relationship with was not a priority for me until about the time I began dating my last girlfriend.
