I was married for ten years, have four beautiful boys under 9 and have a very fulfilling and successful career.My life is happy, but I really would love to share it with someone…but dating when you have FOUR kids is like the Mt Everest of the dating world!
I believe I have a lot to offer – I am caring, kind, warm, loyal and intelligent. I am not looking for a father for the boys; they have one.I am not looking for a provider; I provide very well for myself.I just want a friend and a companion and someone who I have chemistry and intellectual compatibility with.I am seriously at the point of giving up on the whole dating thing…Is it too much of an ask that I could actually meet someone who can see me as a woman, and not just as mother or worse, a bit of bedroom fun? I know Everest is high, but SOME people get up the damn thing, don’t they?Dear Christina, Before I give you the pep talk you need, let me first acknowledge the painful truths that you’ve eloquently outlined above. Having four kids under the age of 9 is a huge handicap.I’d try to spin it in a slightly more positive way, but I can’t.As a screenwriter, I don’t know if you live in LA or not, but this is a town where people don’t grow up for a really long time.I got married at 35 and had kids at 37 and 39 and I was ahead of most of my friends.There’s no way that I – or most men who don’t have their shit together – would willingly enter into a relationship with a woman who has so many other responsibilities, the way all moms do.At risk of making myself look bad, I once dated a single mom of a two-year-old.
