This might be selfish of me, but sometimes I felt as if I needed to compete with the kids for attention! It was them first and then me (which is to be expected). Also, she would have time for me when they weren't around (e.g. weekends). Which made me felt, to put it strongly, a little used.
QUESTION: Guys, have you been through something like this too? How did you cope? Ladies, if you're divorced with kids and in a relationship, how do you share your affections? Curious to know.

I'm single at age 30 with no kids and understand a little where you're coming from. I like kids, but I am worried if I will be able to handle being responsible, at least at times when they're around, for someone else's child(ren). I personally am really independent, so would relish having regular breaks from my partner to just do my own thing ... but I do worry about having kids around that I don't know very well and what my role would be to them if I were to progress in a relationship with a guy with kids.
However, if you are over 45 ... there should be a growing number of women whose kids are in high school or older and don't need as much attention.
