Patience dating single dad
I’ve been in a terrible relationship before and honestly now, I’d rather be alone than with the wrong guy.
I’d try to spin it in a slightly more positive way, but I can’t.She was smart, she was sexy, she was financially independent – and she had no time to give to me.At the time, when I was 33, I blamed her for this, thinking that if she liked me more, she’d make a greater effort. What I didn’t know then is that kids suck up every second of free time you’ve got, and that you have to work extra hard to create me-time, much less couple-time. And that makes being a parent of small children really tough sometimes. (I feel it’s necessary to issue that disclaimer before I complain about them.) However, my kids are not easy going in any way, shape, or form. So I think it’s unrealistic to think that just because a kid is our kid, we’re going to be naturals at parenting at every stage of their existence.Part of my patience deficit is the irritability and anxiety that go along with the depression I am managing right now. And you know what that means: Irritable, sleepy, patience-deprived mom clingy, needy, high-maintence children = mama on the verge of a nervous breakdown. We’re going to be great at some stages and not so great at others.
