In the four years since the birth of my daughter and the end of my relationship with her mother, I have done some dating.Most of that dating was fairly casual, but I have been in a couple relationships—the most recent and most serious of those relationships having lasted just under two years. Or at least I realize now looking back on it just how easy it was.When I only had my daughter four days out of the month, it was easy to just plan our dates and adventures around those days.But once I suddenly had her half the time, it became almost impossible for us to make plans together.
But I can honestly say after seeing all this and going through this I now think twice when I hear a man being bashed for walking away from thier kids. What situation is better for them when you go with out, do everything you can and still are nothing but a plane ticket and a disrespected pawn?They both cheated on their spouses to be together and now they are --so more power to them!!Having recently read an article describing What A Single Mom Wants In A Boyfriend I began asking myself exactly what I was looking for in a woman with whom I choose to have a relationship. Recently, after a brutal 14-month custody battle, I was finally granted 50/50 custody of her and no longer limited to being an every-other-weekend dad.When I felt bad and bought them a few outfits with my own money and she had the balls to demand I give up the reciepts so she could take them back and use the money for her own needs. When I went 2 winters with out heat so she could get her BOAT FIXED, Go on a cruise, spend the holidays in NEW YORK CITY. Even more sadly though, through all of it I would have not minded as long as the kids had what they needed and not been the least bit bitchy about going with out.The kids have been little more than pawns to a better pay day and yet she has had no time for them as they were not allowed here (her words) but they instead got pawned off on anyone who would take them.
Anyway now I realize why his ex was from hell because he almost sent me there too. When the verbal abuse started getting aimed towards my daughter thats when I drew the line.
