As mentioned previously, I tend to be a serial monogamist. For future reference, when I maybe have some blog readers, 🙂 , I have decided to make a relationship timeline for your information (it can get confusing.)
16-21 My first love – I am still in contact with him (BB)
21-23 My first husband with whom I had my first child (boy) – we have no contact (Boydad)
26-33 My second husband with whom I had my second child (girl) – we still get on great, he has remarried and my daughter has a great stepmom. (Girldad)
34-39 A relationship with the man I mentioned in friday’s post (SS)
39 – 44 My last relationship which recently broke down (WW) – still have contact
Between these relationships there were also a few guys that I dated short-term with whom I also still have contact.
Whew! Quite a list.
Right, so before a get many mean comments haha I must say that I do realise that I have relationship issues, or at the very least, I do not follow the norm with regards to most people out there. I guess some folk would think that maybe I am just an airhead that goes from one man to the next (maybe I am). I do however need to put this all into context. I am and have been right from the beginning of my career, a successful business woman. I have excelled in many positions and was recruited to work in Europe for an international company for a few years. I have provided well for my family throughout this time. I own two homes and am seen by most of my friends and family as a rather bright scientist. Quite a contradiction isn’t it?
I am about to turn 45 years old. I would like to find out why my relationships don’t last so that I can rectify the problem and finally settle down happily. This blog is part of the process.
