I’m tired of guys treating me like I should be grateful if they even stick around for five minutes. Do I need to be a nun in order to find someone who can actually see a relationship with me?
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? I was married for ten years, have four beautiful boys under 9 and have a very fulfilling and successful career.
My life is happy, but I really would love to share it with someone…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.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.Single guys in their mid-30s who want to have their own biological kids in four years don’t.
