Most understood the point I was making in the article, but rather than relaxing and just going with the flow, they wanted to know: “How can I fix it if I was stressing too much? When you care too much, you inevitably become attached to a certain outcome. The next step is to get to the root of it and figure out how to solve it.
This phenomenon isn't new, of course -- prehistoric daters sat by their curly-corded phones waiting for their ghosts to call, and assumed that call have come when he or she was out of the house.
But when deciding to date a woman with a child, you should be clear about your expectations for the relationship upfront with yourself and her.

They are called personal preferences for a reason and we don’t need the approval of anyone else when it comes to what we like.
