_VIXENSince you're a Canadian and I am one, I will give you one good reason.
And this is Canada specific so people please do not say "well, it is not this case for me here" if here is not Canada.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...
It's fine to talk about your kids, but keep it to a minimum. It's a good idea to keep your dates private until things start to get serious.
Doing otherwise can end up making your kids angry or jealous. It's natural to feel like a teenager with raging hormones when you start dating again.
Majority of the time, it works out well and the parents involved raise children who go on to be productive citizens in the world. My relationship with my father was imperfect and strained.
There were stretches of time when he wasn’t around; either by his own volition or my mother protecting us from his disappointments. Having such an inconsistent father was my first example of what kind of father not to be.
If your new man isn't willing to wait, then he will have little patience for anything else. Give yourself time to really get to know this new man.
