In our increasingly rapid-fire paced, screen-based lives, we are hungry for the slower speed of analog, for the delicious unfolding of a human connection rife with anticipation and sensory exploration. Being single, especially when you have kids, has its fair share of challenges.
My son spends every other weekend with my ex-husband, which allows my boyfriend and I to concentrate on our relationship.
At least one night a week, my son and I have date night so we can concentrate on our own relationship.
By establishing boundaries for my time with both my son and my boyfriend, we’re able to ease into the new family dynamic without making anyone feel left out or pressured. My son knows not to enter my bedroom when the door is closed unless he’s received our express permission.
And that boundary extends both ways: my son prefers that my boyfriend not see him in a state of undress so, unless it’s an emergency, my boyfriend is not involved in any bathroom or shower tasks.
