too soon start dating again after divorce-77

For the next year, I went back to my old way and then about six months into that one year span, I hit probably the lowest point that I’ve ever been in my life.

I was to the point from a dating prospective, I did not know what I wanted.

I literally lived as the parent and then I lived as the rock star single guy, but neither of those two met.

I can only be thankful I was able to hide my mistakes behind their nap time. So many dads don’t have that and I talk about the fact that when you screw up and when you’ve got a kid that’s 11, 12 years old, they’re going to see everything you do.

I couldn’t even keep up with all of them and unfortunately, it was that type of thing. When a married man gets divorced, he invariably goes in one of two directions.

He either becomes the old hermit who doesn’t go anywhere or do anything or he goes back and tries to relive his 20’s again. About two years after my divorce I got into a relationship with a woman, we lasted for 18 months. It is a very unfortunate thing that over the course of those early years that I made some of the mistakes that I made and I hate that. If I had a man or men in my life speaking to me, saying, “You need to really reconsider what you’re doing here,” I’m convinced I would not have made some of those choices. I would often prey upon the single mothers who probably didn’t have a lot of confidence in themselves, because they were single moms and whatever and I would show them a good time and invariably within a month or two months into the relationship, they would want something else and I would be done, because I wasn’t ready.That relationship ended rather abruptly and it wasn’t because of anything between me and her.I started to see things within her children that were impacting my kids from a behavior prospective and knew that it wasn’t going to get any better for her, so the relationship ended. You’re dipping your toe in the online-dating waters.
