This weekend has been quiet with my kids away and "R" out of town. It gave me time to think, something I have been avoiding. I was so wrapped up in "R" and enjoying the "mental collaring" as he calls it, that I wasn't thinking if he was actually right for me. I usually have a set of guidelines that I follow when I date and because of where I am with my kids ages, I typically don't date men who have young children. I am at a different stage of my life than they are, not bad just different. Because of this journey I decided to take I didn't want to bring any restrictions with me, so when I met him I ignored my inner voice and said just go for it.
