Confession Time...

Okay, so I've had something on my mind...do I say it, do I not...what do I say, how much do I say? Hmmmm...well I just decided that I'm going to say it. I met someone.
*****************************************************

Okay, you can pick yourselves up off the floor, or your jaw...whichever is on the floor. Chrissy, I can hear you now. "What? Who?" (Some of my friends are a little predictable.)

Not many people know...in fact very, very few. And that's been for several reasons. One reason is I don't want to be serious, and even mentioning it kind of gives the impression it could be serious. Then again, maybe that's my hangup. Two, this is all so new to me. And I'm discovering just how truly difficult dating the second time around is. Three, the kids. And most importantly the kids...they add a whole other element to something that already has it's challenges.

I'm not giving details...no names...no stories...not now. I guess the reason why I decided to say something is because just like going through the divorce was hard, I saw how me being honest really helped not only me, but did a lot for others too. Maybe this will be the same way. It's not about the person I'm dating, it's just about dating in general. Does that makes sense?

I will say though that I am enjoying myself and although you have to jump through lots of hoops to date someone when you have kids, it seems to be worth it right now. It would have to be, because otherwise it's just too exhausting. Well more on that later...maybe.

That's very exciting. The thing about dating is that you should feel woo'd and special... and you definatly deserve to feel sought after and special... I am so glad that this new year season can be that for you! Besides, we can never have too many friends!

I think that's great! I know that you have your head on straight and a lot of caution, plus you have God (and are looking to Him) every step of the way. I think that will be good and healthy and just what you need right now. Very excited for you! Looking forward to hearing the details if you wish to share at some point!
BTW, on a side note... when I saw you the other day I just couldn't stop thinking about how good you looked! You are such a pretty girl-of course you are going to be noticed a lot!

I'm so happy! Whether or not it turns into anything, just the fact that you are willing to explore the opportunity in a responsible manner. I can't imagine dating again with kids in the picture, but I bet it makes it easier to weed out the ones you don't want!!

Larissa,

I am so happy for you. Even if he is not Mr. Right but just Mr. Right Now, after a divorce you need someone to make you feel special.

After being married and I am sure having children, to say you are “dating” is a big change. You deserve some happiness and I am glad you are not afraid to get out there and take a chance again. God has great things in store for you girl.

This has nothing to do with this post because I'm just reading the last few. Congrats on "the guy", but I already knew all of that. I don't understand Madi's comment about the legs. I read the post again, but it's hard to concentrate on reading when I'm humming the songs from your playlist. Anyway, you'll have to explain that one later.
