Dating strong independent woman
We learned he had Fanconi Anemia, a rare genetic disease that often causes bone marrow failure and death, usually before a child reaches adulthood.My husband was understandably overwhelmed and angered by our son’s disease. I studied all the literature available at the library (there was no internet in those days).
Did you write her off, assuming she didn’t have room in her busy life for you?I can’t speak for all women, but I can tell you that this independent woman makes time for the people who are important; family, friends, and the man in my life.Independence doesn’t mean I want to live alone for the rest of my life, doing everything for myself.It doesn’t mean I can’t “time-slot” a man into my life, as some men have feared.Yes, my life is gloriously full, I want a relationship. Before my divorce, I was more of a follower than a leader, more passive than active.Unfortunately, many of the men I date don’t understand how that works. Now, I’m an independent homeowner, bill payer, business owner, single mom, and CEO of my life.
When I left my husband, I didn’t realize how much responsibility I’d be taking on. I want to crawl under a rock and make all my responsibilities disappear.
I want a knight in shining armor to come and whisk me away to an exotic island, sipping margaritas as we watch the sunset.
But not for long, because I don’t give up or give in easily. I enjoy the vibrant life I’ve created, but it’s not yet complete.
I’ve slain many dragons, most of them way before my divorce.
Our firstborn child was born with many birth defects.
In his first two years of life, he had 17 surgeries.
