On Things, "This and That"

I am opening a thread to talk to “this and that”…mainly comprising of my random observations. It’s a safe place to ramble I suppose. Feel free to share your ramblings here.

On Dating Single dads/Moms:

Some of my single girlfriends ask me if its ‘safe’ to date a single parent. 5 years ago, I would have said nope, don’t do that. It’s too much work with kids, you are always going to be second priority, what fun can you possibly have with a toddler and they fall sick all the time and jump in your bed just when you are starting to doze off.
Then I met Frank (pseudo name). He works in a different department. Not a head-turner but good company to have lunch with. He is in mid-40’s, doing some junior job and very happy where he is and he has no grand intentions of making it big. He has a 5 year old and he is a single dad. He would tell me, no, let me rephrase, he would instruct me about certain books I ‘should’ read. He would go on and on about a book with so much excitement that I would often forget to comprehend what he is saying…I would just be awestruck with his excitement. What’s attractive about him is the dad in him. He would ‘tell’ me I should drink more coconut water as its high in natural electrolytes.
Couple of years later, I would find a show or two based on the books he suggested. I would watch those shows and then I would look forward to more shows and more books from the list he suggested.

Would I have missed out on life if I handt met him? perhaps not. But boy would I have missed out out laughing out loud at certain lines from a book

So, now, when my girlfriends ask me if its safe to date a single dad, I tell them. Yes, as long as you don’t expect a bed of roses, I think you will find a mate.
