and it's sucks more than you remember! I wasn't all that great at the dating thing the first time around, and I didn't get better by being away from it for 9 years! The last year of dating has been a lot of fun... I made sure! and now I'm ready to be done again! So ENJOY while you can, LEARN lots about yourself, and don't forget to RELAX!

Bathrobe Goddeess, Welcome to the dating world!

rule #1 Don't assume anything.

Rule#2 Don't take anything personally

Rule#3 Mean what you say, say what you mean.

Rule#4 If he doesn't understand that the little ones come first, and that dropping everything for a last minute date, is a non-no. That ordering in and a video are much more appropriate for a single mother, then he really is never going to get it. RESPECT!

Rule #4 Always remember that you are way too good to put up with any bull s**t.

Rule #5 Sex is not a contract. Go into sex for what it is, an instinct, make more of it later on.
