Being Careful

While having lunch, my daughter and I are discussing life as we normally do over food.  The topic of dating arises and she says to me, "Mom, you need to be careful around men. You really don't need to be around them at all. What is the purpose of hanging out with them?"

I love this kid. And she reads my posts...against my better judgement.

I did not give her much feedback other than telling her that she has nothing to worry about when it comes to her mother and men. I am sure some of my friends, male and female, who may be reading this will concur...I am hard on these boys out here! >> In my full Northeast attitude: Don't pop fly to me homie, I came in already unimpressed, sir.

I am VERY careful with the men I chose to be around.  I have several guy friends, some are a bit sweet on me and have either expressed or acted in a way that let me know, they would want something more with me, I am extremely careful around these men.  Other friends are just platonic and there is no inkling of any ulterior motives but, even still, I am mindful of what I say and how I behave when I am around them.

My reasoning for this ties to my last post: Exclusive.

With so many selections, I choose none.

I am very personable when I want to be and I have made and will continue make connections with people when I go out BUT, that does not mean I am available for anything aside from just making a simple connection. 

Some of you may be thinking, Well, how will you ever meet someone? Start dating? Get married? << I do not have an answer for this.  Whomever is supposed to be my significant other is either already in my life or I still have yet to meet him.  And whoever this man may be is learning or will learn the type of woman I am, the type of woman I was, and the type of woman I will become.

I crossed my bridge and closed off many old roads.

I am finding my peace with the new journey I created.

I will amazing for him and our family when I cross that path.
