Feel about 12 saying boyfriend! grin
Been seeing him for about 2mths now. He's a single dad with a 4 yr old and 2 grown up DDs.
I'm really happy, he's been round my house a few times in the holidays and his DS and my 4 dc have all played together or my DSs have been on the xbox with DP (that feels weird typing that!).
Dc go back to school Monday and his DS starts school so hopefully we will get some time alone grin!

I never thought anyone would be interested in me with all my dc! Keeping my fingers crossed all goes well for me for once!

Aw, Tortoise, that is sweet!

Hope for us all then. I'll was 4 years single in July & it feels like a chronic condition. Can't imagine anyone wanting to take on me, dts age 9 & our chaotic mess of a life! I'd love to have someone to care for me and to care for again in that way.

Sort of known of him for a while through mutual friend. I've been walking to preschool with friend and her DD. He was there dropping off his DS. We all used to walk down the road chatting. Then about 3-4mths ago he added me as a friend on fb. I accepted and we started chatting on there.

Then he was taking his DS away for a week and I told him I would miss chatting to him so we exchanged mobile numbers! Chatted a lot via txt while he was away and I realised I missed seeing him around. Kind of went on from then. I knew he liked me from the start!

Me up in the park with dc at beginning of summer hols and had a quick sneaky kiss while kids weren't looking lol.

Then he started coming to mine at least once a week. Few longer sneaky kisses while kids were outside!

My dc seem happy about it. Which is good.
I'm 33 and he's 47 which I have to admit worried me a bit at 1st but I don't care now.
Sorry, that was a bit long!

Grockle Sat 03-Sep-11 23:02:11

Sounds lovely, tortoise. Enjoy it smile

If you ate both happy, the age difference shouldn't matter at all

Am grin from reading your last post!

I love that gooey butterfly feeling at the beginning of a relationship smile

How exciting! Good for you! You know a relationship is good for you when it makes you feel like a teenager and you can't stop telling people.

Enjoy it!
