Despite my wish for a personal life, my children have always remained my number one priority, and I refuse to loosen my grip on that, to compromise their emotional security so I can meet my own or someone else's selfish needs. Here's the truth: dating while divorcing with young kids is complicated.

Over the past few years, I've dated a variety of men in their 40s and 50s. They've ranged in personality, profession, height and appearance, but they've all had one thing in common.
