At that point, after more than our share of failed relationships, we both genuinely thought we had found “the one.” ◊♦◊ The day I was granted equal custody of my daughter fell smack-dab right in the middle of our relationship, and looking back, it was a defining moment for us—the day I can pinpoint as the beginning of the end.When I only had my daughter four days out of the month, it was easy to just plan our dates and adventures around those days.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.Needless to say, the communication and intimacy in our relationship quickly began to deteriorate.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.You can live your life, go out on dates, and pretty much do whatever you want within the confines of the law for 26 days out of the month.

You can talk to any single dad, and the odds are at one time or another, they have trusted too much and had that trust broken—either by their child’s mother, or by someone they dated after her.
We don’t want to be suspicious and un-trusting, but it comes with the territory when you’ve been through what we’ve been through.

When we as dads take our children out in public, it is not uncommon to be asked where their mom is, or hear comments about us pulling “mommy duty” for the day.
