So, ladies, you’ve met a guy who you like and who seems he’s got a lot going for him. But as with most stereotypes, it’s unfair and unwise to lump everyone together. When one of his toddler daughter has a bad dream, she wakes Dad. Again, the WSF’s conduct probably doesn’t exist in a vacuum.
He’s got kids and he’s got a career, but there’s something you sense that’s different about him. Sure, there are plenty of guys who drag their feet and panic at the thought of being ‘tied down.’ But there are many more guys who will happily and eagerly commit to the right woman. When his son is sick at school, Dad’s the one who drives to school and brings him home. Likely, it permeates to all of his relationships, including those of the romantic variety.” Well, this will not have been a WSF’s first trip to the circus, so to speak.
If you are feeling threatened or insecure, you may need to redefine how you understand grief and the relationship deceased loved ones play in the lives of those who mourn them.
Above all else, it will help to understand how your significant other feels about the photos, so consider asking them.
After all, men as a whole have a reputation of being commitment-phobic. He doesn’t get a break one night a week and every other weekend when he drops his kids off to his ex. He’s on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year. Those take a back seat to driving to gymnastics, birthday parties, chorus concerts, and dentist appointments, homework, grocery shopping, and making dinner.
