I'm at a lost for words

Today I received a phone call from my daughter. She is the passenger in my blogs. She called to see how I was doing and where I was. I told her I was headed to Iowa to pick up and head down to Laredo,Tx.

We talked about the usual things. What have you been doing? Who have you been playing with? and so on. She comes out of the blue asking me if I have a girlfriend. what? Where did that come from?

I tell her no. I don't have time for a girlfriend. She tells me that I need one because I'm sad. What? She tells me that if I had a girlfriend,she would make me happy. (laughing)

I told her that I didn't need a girlfriend to be happy. She told me that I could love her like I use to love her mom. I changed the subject quickly. She is only ten years old. I don't know where this was coming from.

After I got off the phone with her, I started to think about what we talked about. Am I destined to be alone? Can I make a relationship work? Can I tell her how I feel?

I don't think about the situation I'm in. I keep it buried away in a far away place.

I think you have a wonderful daughter who wants her dad to enjoy the a shared life and not be as you say in this post "depressed" I right now just said a little prayer that you find someone to trust to give your heart to when you are ready. Hugs and kisses, MO

You are one lucky Daddy

Its hard having a relationship when one is gone alot. I do think it is possible though. Your daughter sees more than you realize and she probably sees lots of her friends parents together and how happy they are. At least, how they appear to be happy. She just wants the best for you. I don't think you are destined to be alone, it just takes time. I hope everything works out and that perfect someone for you at the right time and right place happens.
