I have been divorced for almost 8 years. I was in a serious relationship that lasted 2 1/2 years. Most people wouldn't understand why I stayed for so long because I don't understand myself. He was my soul mate, I've known him since 1996, and I thought everything was coming full circle when we got serious. I tend to think with my heart and ignore common sense. He cheated on me throughout our relationship, although I didn't know for sure until last March and we broke up. There is so much more to that story but I won't give all the details here. I just know that I don't want to judge anybody based on what my ex did to me. What I would like is honesty. It's so important. It is very important that the man I'm with believes in God. I am a stay at home mother to a beautiful 13 year old girl who has special needs. I am finishing up real estate school so when I'm done I should be licensed both in NY and Fl.
I am looking for a real man. He needs to be self sufficient, both professionally and especially personally. Because of my situation with my daughter, I am not able to get out there and get a regular 9-5 day job. Therefore, any man I date needs to be aware of the fact that I will probably be a stay at home mom for a couple years to come, and be ok with that. I put it out there now because that is a big deal and I would not want to find someone and fall in love with them, then have them be pissed that I need to be available for my daughter and can't contribute as much as they can.
What I mean by personally self sufficient, I mean that I don't want a man who will run to his mother or his sister or whoever and tell them about any problems we may have before even coming to me about it! I am in a relationship with you, not your sister! Lol. The good news is that I am very patient, very kind, and understanding. I try to never jump to conclusions, and you will always know where you stand with me. I don't know how to be fake.
