We discuss work, life, issues, non-issues, food, food issues, movies, books, travel, sex, love, friends and his amazing teenage daughters.
Last week, I mentioned that when his girls are old enough (I've told them both that 20 is old enough), they will start dating. And I also mentioned that his girls will likely choose slightly nerdy, active, intelligent, charmers. Men just like their dad....
And my thought-provoking, deep-thinking, ever-so-gently-inquisitive friend comes back with "In your case, what does that say about the kind of men you choose?"
Well, what it used to say....was that I chose men who treated me unkindly, disrespectfully, and ultimately used me and left me high and dry. Some of them would leave, come back, and then leave again. Ironic? because that is what my father did.
I dated men who were awful fathers to their own children, and one man who was even going to sign away his rights to his only daughter. In good conscience and for my own well being, I didn't stick around long enough to find out if he ever did because, let's face it, if you are going to desert your kid, what the hell are you going to do to me?
