This may seem difficult to accept, particularly if you have been looking forward to an intimate evening with your partner for the whole of the week.

However, we’re at the four month mark, and I’m starting to get a bit antsy and curious about a few things.
Here is Scott’s guest post that gives us a glance at the transition from single guy to married guy with step kids, and all the wonderful things that can happen if you are open-minded, have insight into what the kids are going through, and just give it time.

Thank you for all of your clear and concise thoughts over the last few years.
I have definitely taken things to heart: look for boyfriend behavior; there is a natural timeline where commitment should come by month three, “I love you” around 6 months, living together at 18, engaged at 2-3 years; men do what they want, and so many other pearls.This effectively means that sometimes you might need to wait alone at a restaurant table while your partner excuses himself to make a call home.
