They already know what their dad put you through and they will automatically be wanting you to be happy. And yes they would want you to have someone else in your life, if this new man is no good your kids will know and they will show you that they don't like him one way or another however if he is a good man you can rest assure that the kids will show their approval. Just because they are your children doesn't mean they need protecting forever especially since they are teenagers. Cut them some slack, you've bought them up and they are adults that can make adult decisions.
And yes I speak from experience apart from the cheating I was where you are last year and we are all one big happy family. His children being younger than my own.
I was bought a beautiful necklace, however the pendant was large and more dress. I exchanged the pendant for something I could wear all the time. I asked if he minded first and feel it is better than having it sit on my tree most of it's time. I don't generally exchange but with an expensive gift, I prefer to get use from it. He seems fine with it.
I would have no problem with others exchanging that I have bought, in fact, I go half crazy looking for the perfect gift and normally nail it but not with my SO....he is so hard to buy for as he really doesn't want for much. Most of the gifts I have bought him don't really get used and I would actually have preferred he exchange for something he wants or prefers.
Agreed, I'm not one to approach a man either but I will put myself in a position to have him approach me either with by idle chatter while waiting at the bar and give off vibes so he knows he can talk to me. Eye contact or a smile from across the room earlier on. Asking someone to dance if you are at a club, just opening up the doors of communication. If he doesn't take the hint he can't be very interested...
Well that's just your opinion and obviously others share that opinion as do others like myself and many here that keep this site to themselves.
When you use words like lying and cheating, maybe you are directing them at WC, I wouldn't know I haven't seen her posts but it certainly looks like you are saying that to all of us that want to remain innominate.
Nothing I write on here would incriminate me at all, so I have nothing to fear if this site was discovered by anyone I know personally....however I choose to make this my personal diary and get advice on situations in life that I don't feel I can get from friends/family.
You come here to play with people and stir and in the short time you have been here you have posted more times than the 10 years I've been around. We all use the site for different reason never is right or wrong...
And incriminating...weren't you the one that posted a pic of his dick?? What if I were to have saved that and threw that out on the internet? Yes you really do have to watch what you put out there don't you??
Dxp and the members here are like your private confidants, I totally understand why you don't want your partner or family here and I also know there are a lot of us on here that feel exactly the same. Change your name for when you want answer to anything that you don't want him to read about knowing it's you. My partner is curious about this site too, I always just say I'm on my forum...just as well he's not that great on a computer he might want to snoop...but this is my private world!
