I started to go out with this woman. We have had some "dates" and so far NO red flags. Trust me I have been looking for them!
She was in a relationship that was abusive so we can relate on many levels.
One refreshing thing she said to me the other day...I had to do something for my son...and she said "I understand...stop saying sorry to me." I then realized I did say sorry way too much. I guess I have been conditioned to do that and I really need to break that. I told her that meant a lot to me that she understood and she said your son is important to you and he should be!
Right now...just enjoying her company and healthy conversation and interactions.
Quite refreshing! Life is good!
