And He Asks . . .

"What makes you happy?"

"My children do, of course. My job, and *hesitation* you."

There was silence.

Her answer seemed like a shy statement, a reluctant hypothesis. But what it really was, was a question; and their whole future depends on his answer. He thinks for a moment...the moment of truth and realizes that he does not know the answer. He knows where to find it though.

His hands softly glide along either side of her neck, beneath her hair, his thumbs gently stroke her cheeks; causing her face to tilt to match his. Looking deeply into her eyes he begins the search for his answer; flipping quickly through the pages of her heart's journal and reading there until he finds the page he seeks. There it is, in black and white, and crystal clear in meaning. His tongue begins to fill with words as his mouth opens and takes a breath and his heart begins to speak.

Only you can tel us what he said, Dusty.

kyplowboy22 the description in your second paragraph is similar. His answer may never be revealed, to me or anyone else.

The suspense is killing me and not the "little death"

I think you must have caught him off guard. Perhaps he wasn't expecting you to say that! Did he faint? When he comes to, he'll probably give you a big hug and kiss!

After my last GF I've almost sworn off women who have kids.

I grew up always feeling like I was not getting enough attention. I was super shy and was not good at going out and getting it or giving much of it myself.

So when I have had girlfriends you might say that I sometimes have a tendency to demand (more like expect) a supreme buttload of attention.

It was nearly immediate when I first had a girlfriend with kids that I realized I was never going to be the #1 thing in this girls life.

But that really did not stop me from having girlfriends with kids.

Partially because long ago I made a lifetime committment to being an artist and musician and I new that absolutly nothing would ever come between me and that committment so it was fair enough of a compromise that I also had a 1st love.

But after each relationship with a girl with kids I would always swear it off and say "never again" only to eventually return to such a relationship.

And at my age now it's quite a rare needle in a haystack that I ever come across a girl that's anywhere near my own age that does not have children.

And a shocking new trend is meeting women my age who's kids have left the nest who possibly even have kids of their own. I'm still adjusting to the idea that people my own age who actually have kids but grandchildren? Yikes!!!

I guess I really am not a teenager anymore even though I frequently behave like one.

At this point I have no idea what in the world I'm saying but I think my point is to say that my own response to this (if it were me) might be to the fact that I was playing second fiddle to your kids.

The paradox of this being is that I would not respect a woman who did put me on a higher ledge than her kids because as a mother it's her responsibility to place the kids at the highest level and if they don't they are failing in their basic responsibility as a mother.

Catch 22 all the way on this one (for me that is)

KC_JJ there will never be a man who will be number one in my life as long as I have children at home. On playing second fiddle, well, I know I am not number one in his life. So, no biggie. He fully expects me to be a mom first.
