You might think that change shouldn’t have a significant effect on the qualities I look for in a woman, but it absolutely does.
Most of that dating was fairly casual, but I have been in a couple relationships—the most recent and most serious of those relationships having lasted just under two years. Or at least I realize now looking back on it just how easy it was.
She had children too, so trying to balance both of our schedules and find evenings that we were both kid-free just put more and more stress on our relationship.
When we did find time to see each other, we were both so exhausted from work and taking care of our children, that we barely had enough energy left to sit on the couch watching Netflix until we passed out.
Because of this, finding a potential partner to have a serious relationship with was not a priority for me until about the time I began dating my last girlfriend.
We started dating casually, but we fell for each other hard and fast.
