I was just curious as to how you are approaching the dating life/starting a relationship with someone...especially with a child?
I have been single for 2.5 years. My son is 3.5 years old. I feel like I am so stand offish when it comes to having a serious relationship. I enjoy dating and I have been on a good number of dates but afterwards I am kind of just like "nah, he's not the one" or I immediately find something wrong with them and I move on. I feel like I am kind of set in my own ways now. I do my own thing...which consists of working M-F, working out, picking my son up from day care, maybe going to the park, tball pracitce/games or just coming home and making dinner for my son and I, watching tv, playing a little bit and then bedtime routine. But I am not unhappy....AT ALL. I can do what I want, when I want to. I can go out with girlfriends, I spend all my time with son, I can work out when I want, whatever. I have a great balance of social life, work life, life with my child who is part of every aspect of my life. I feel like I dont have room/time for someone else and honestly I think I am scared to commit and not sure that I would want to.
But then the other half of me does want to spend my life with someone, have a positive male role model for my son (his dad is a drug addict/alcoholic), have someone to wake up next to and fall asleep next to, take vacations with, to grow old with etc. But its just getting to that point. Getting through all the BS dating scene. Finding someone who I can trust and trust around my son. A lot of dates I find seem to only want one thing and I am not that type of girl. I am 32 years old and I feel like I have a lot to offer but I am just not sure who I want to offer it to/share it with, if anyone at all.
Just wanted to see how you feel about relationships and dating......
