Relationships that start as a rebound after divorce may end in failure more easily than those that don't, according to psychiatrist Mark Banschick on on the Psychology Today website. I am a single mom of one, dating a single full time dad of two. Whew, it was almost enough to make me want to spend my nights alone with a cat.

And, it also tells me that I am competing with those kids.
The heart you save by doing this will be your own. Now I am so glad I did. Avoid talking badly about his ex at all costs. But if you slow the drive to the bedroom you might avoid getting mixed up in something purely physical. But the thought of meeting his kids scares me.
