Well, let me clarify: I have no shortage of “dates”. I have an outgoing personality and seem to be asked out a lot…
I guess I must be in reasonable shape because NOBODY can guess I’ve even had four kids, or that I’m even 34 (I get asked out by guys in their early 20s- I feel like I should read them a story and tuck them into bed… we usually go on a few dates, everything is going wonderful… I’m not talking about church bells, but just to an actual relationship. I am sick of being treated like a piece of ass, and treated like I must be desperate because I have kids.
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’d try to spin it in a slightly more positive way, but I can’t.
You should just find a guy who is looking for a Brady Bunch family, who sees sex as the icing on the cake instead of the cake itself.You should just find a guy who is looking for a Brady Bunch family, who sees sex as the icing on the cake instead of the cake itself. Today, I’m giving you my new book, “Believe in Love – 7 Steps to Letting Go of Your Past, Embracing the Present, and Dating with Confidence.” and it’s going to forever change the way you view dating, men, and relationships. That said, you are right, there are a few men out there that want to blend a family.Hi, There are still so many men in Los Angeles that are on their 2nd and 3rd marriages to much younger women and they have kids. I have read profiles of men I want to contact but am stopped because they state they prefer women with children.So instead of giving up on the whole thing – which, as you know – is incredibly shortsighted, given that you have 50 more years on this earth, how about you change focus?Middle-aged divorced men understand what it’s like to be you.I am seriously at the point of giving up on the whole dating thing…Is it too much of an ask that I could actually meet someone who can see me as a woman, and not just as mother or worse, a bit of bedroom fun? I know Everest is high, but SOME people get up the damn thing, don’t they?but dating when you have FOUR kids is like the Mt Everest of the dating world!It seems almost impossible for men to see past that.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.
