I’m smarter and wiser now, hellbent on never letting that happen again, and so when distance is built into my dating life by default, it makes everything less stressful.want to date someone who would want to put me before their children, and establishing this boundary helps keep myself in check and not allow my relationship to define me.
When there is a mutual understanding that we are not each other’s first priority, I can focus my energy on my friends, career, family, hobbies, and, most importantly, myself — all things that usually fall by the wayside when I start dating someone new. They’re protective of their free time because they have so little of it.
They know how to budget their time and don’t flake (mostly because they’ve already had to hire and pay a babysitter in order to show up to the date).
Also, after sleeping with the same woman for years, they can sometimes forget that their sexual techniques are not one-size-fits-all.
Sex stuff aside, okay, fine, the actual best part about dating DDs is that they’re kinder, more empathetic, and more patient — all traits they had to learn or strengthen from having children.
It's been two years since my husband of 15 years packed up his stuff and left this house and a year and a half since I got the papers in the mail saying all those hopes and dreams were over and I officially became a single person.
