You will wonder at times how she knew about you and a particular significant other because she seems to describe you and the relationship to a T. And, when you read the last page you will wish you had read it years and a number of relationships earlier.

Life Is Messy

As I am a single mother of two, I have had a few interesting experiences dating men that do not have children of their own. I remember dating a man some years ago that had a reaction to one of my daughters. She was tired and moody, and being a young teenager, really didn’t have much interest in hanging out and getting to know my new man. Her biggest concern was who was saying what on Facebook and how often this man was planning on hanging out in her home.
