When I starting dating seriously in my 20′s I had certain expectations of the type of person I would go out with. As I got older, this changed. When I reached my late 30′s and was still single, I looked around and starting questioning if I was to picky.
Well, now I say I just had to wait for the right person. It took me till I was 39 to find him. I always said if I met someone divorced with kids, he had to be in a position to support me, our children, and his from the previous marriage. When I met the person, who is now my husband, divorced, 2 children, he was between jobs and wasn’t really sure the direction he wanted. What changed? Communication, attraction, and a personal tragedy in my life, and he was there for me every step of the way, which changed my life, and his forever.
If this tragedy didn’t occur, I probably wouldn’t have seen some of the qualities that I wanted, I would have looked at the fact that he was not in a position to support a new family and his other one. Don’t wait for the tragedy. Look at the person you are with, and ask yourself will they be there for you no matter what happens in your life. If you answer yes..then maybe stop looking for someone else, maybe you have found the person you need to be with.
