Dating recently divorced dad

I’ve never been married and before this relationship hadn’t had a relationship longer than a few years.

‘Divorce’ and ‘dad’ were two huge grown-up concepts for one single woman.

Even though I was 39, neither marriage nor motherhood had ever featured in my life and so I had no idea what to expect.

Tomorrow I fly to Spain with my boyfriend of six years and his two cool kids and I can’t wait to spend quality time with the three of them for our two-week summer break.

Falling in love with a divorced dad over six years ago was scary.

I arrived on the scene quite a few years down the line after the divorce but the aftermath is like grief.

Your man, your divorced dad, is lucky to have someone so understanding.I had been single for so long, that I found it hard to shake off my own set ways.
