Hopefulguy Posted September 19, 2017 Share Posted September 19, 2017 So I've been doing a little dating over the past couple of months after finally getting my legs under me from my marriage breakup. I am 51 with two great college-aged kids. Recently I went out with a lady in her late thirties a couple of times and we really hit it off. She has two boys (10 and 12) and shares custody with her ex (no drama). I find myself thinking ahead to how I'd fit into that situation if things really worked out between us. I can't see ever assume a "father" role because they already have a dad who has them 50% of the time. As for the age gap, that really shouldn't be an issue with kids because they aren't toddlers and I can objectively say I'm in the best shape of my life (and better than 90% of those who are 40). I have a few interests that I enjoy, but I'm not exactly a social butterfly who needs the freedom to be out socializing a lot. I do want to get back into a more domestic existence. And I do appreciate that it is likely that any lady I meet will have kids, but most likely well into their teens and approaching independence, if the mom is a little closer to my age. Am I overthinking this? I'd really appreciate some perspective! Link to comment
