Happy Sunday. I’m laughing to myself this morning, thinking “I am warning women about so many boys that there is going to be no one left to date”. But then I remember that I still believe in the beauty of dating. This is my journey. So let me talk about encounters with the divorced boy.
I wish I could tell you a story about one divorced boy in particular, as I have dated many. But the more I date the divorced boy, the more I see a common theme: the divorced boy has no time to make me feel as if I’m important in his life. My “profile” of the divorced boy would include the following: he has an ex-wife (duh), and children, and a “crazy life”. He typically has “baby Momma drama” and lots of “kid drama”. He is busy with his job and making enough money to support his drama. And I always keep in the back of my mind that his “baby Momma” divorced him for a reason…
I can tell you that in one of my most recent dates with a divorced boy, he spent more time looking at his phone than looking at me. He had so much going on with his ex-wife and kids, that it was difficult for him to enjoy his time on a date with me. He even answered the phone when his ex-wife called! I was thinking to myself that it’s a shame he needs to stay this connected to his “ex-life” that he cannot take time out to enjoy a dinner date with me. (FYI, when on a date, I NEVER take my phone out of my bag – call me old-fashioned, but I think its RUDE).
This boy was certainly cute enough and fun and very funny. I could spend a lot of time attempting to get him to “pay attention to me”, but I have learned not to waste my precious time. After all, busy boy, I have news for you. I HAVE A LIFE TOO!
In fact, I’m running a marathon tomorrow and you forgot to wish me good luck.
I guess to “wrap this blog up”, so that I don’t sound too bitter, I will say that I will be happy to date a divorced man. Because I know a divorced man will take the time to make me feel special and important when we are on a date. SO SIMPLE TO KNOW AND YET SO HARD TO FIND! So I continue to date in the quest for “my man”.
Thanks for reading.
