Dating a man who is a single parent communication in intercultural dating relationships
A few years ago, I started cracking jokes regularly about hot dads.
Very early in this relationship, I suggested I help my boyfriend with an intense cleaning sesh of his kitchen.
When a person has to care for another human, they simply have less emotional and physical energy to invent snafus or hang-ups.
Nothing is a big deal unless it's an actual Big Deal.
I used to let envy blind me badly in the past—even if a boyfriend managed to remain congenial with an ex, the whole bond made me feel rattled as hell.
Now that I'm with a person who's ex will be around in a close way forever and ever amen, I have to be OK with that. We can't let ourselves feel threatened for no viable reason.
