I got married at 35 and had kids at 37 and 39 and I was ahead of most of my friends.
There’s no way that I – or most men who don’t have their shit together – would willingly enter into a relationship with a woman who has so many other responsibilities, the way all moms do.
Even if I really take my time getting to know someone before we become intimate… Don’t hear from him for days, I assume it’s over…then a text with, “hey are you home tonight? Is it unreasonable that I am hoping someone could take me seriously or see my worth?
I’ve been in a terrible relationship before and honestly now, I’d rather be alone than with the wrong guy.
Dear Christina, Before I give you the pep talk you need, let me first acknowledge the painful truths that you’ve eloquently outlined above. Having four kids under the age of 9 is a huge handicap.I believe I have a lot to offer – I am caring, kind, warm, loyal and intelligent. I am not looking for a father for the boys; they have one.I am not looking for a provider; I provide very well for myself.Watching the MTV music awards and reading this brilliant post have started to make me think about the kind of teenage girls I want mine to be.
And more specifically the kind of teenage girl I want them to be.
I’d try to spin it in a slightly more positive way, but I can’t.
