You and he need to decide what type of role you'll be playing for his kids. A friend of mine was dating a man with kids and when they both realized it was getting serious (they ended up getting married), he told his kids to treat whatever she said as if he said it. Mind you, his kids were younger than your guy's kids but there was no doubt where she stood with his kids.
You can't be completely hands-off with his kids if you're going to spend any amount of time around them.View Thread
We're going to Santa Cruz for the weekend leaving early Saturday morning and returning Monday. We've been there before but only one night so we didn't really have time to do much. That and we'd forgotten our bathing suits and towels so we couldn't even go to the beach. This time we plan on spending one day at the beach and at least part of a second day at the Boardwalk and doing other stuff.View Thread
We usually do dinner out if grandma can watch the kids. We also get each other cards.
I don't usually forget birthdays or anniversaries since I have them on my calendar but my mom did once. I called my parents a few years ago to wish them happy anniversary and apologized because I was a day late. My mom asked "Our annivesary was yesterday?" and called to my dad "Hey (name), our anniversary was yesterday." She said she knew it was coming up but forgot.View Thread
When I worked fast food, I had a few relationships with co-workers but I don't think there was a policy. I guess you could say DH and I met at work as we met at a hockey arena where I was the scorekeeper and he was one of the referees. The owner knew we were dating and didn't care. We continued to work together even after we were married.View Thread
I've been on two blind dates that didn't produce anything. My aunt tried to set me up with a guy she worked with. We had dinner but there weren't any sparks. A friend tried to set me up with a friend of her and her husband and again, nothing. We had one double date and the one time we tried to get together just the two of us I blew. I was sick and took Nyquil so I could sleep and ended up oversleeping. I tried calling him but he'd already left.View Thread
Even though it was my first wedding, it was DH's second. I really didn't want a huge wedding so we got married at Lake Tahoe with less than 15 people there. We invited more but that was all that were able to make it. I wore my mom's wedding dress, my godmother was my matron of honor and a friend was our best man. We had a large family and friends reception two months after we got married in a relative's backyard.View Thread
I've dated much older (21 years older) but not younger (I don't count 2 years younger as "younger"). I probably wouldn't do it again because at my age, I would wonder why someone that much older would be interested in someone young enough to be their daughter.
I might do younger depending on the maturity of the person. Age is just a number and I've known some 20 somethings who were more mature than some 40 somethings.View Thread
I know DH's PIN, his e-mail log-in and password, his Facebook log-in and password, and his Social Security number. He has had me log into his e-mail to print something (our computer at home died). I have given him my PIN or various passwords but he forgets them. I look at his phone and Facebook accounts with his knowledge. He's free to look at my Facebook account and phone but doesn't.
I'm naturally nosey, I'll be the first to admit it. I'm not trying to "catch" him doing something wrong.View Thread
