I believe that marriage teaches men responsibility, structure, how to co-define reality, what women want and how to put someone else before themselves.I have giggled to myself and so very much appreciated the little things that divorced men I have dated have done for me.I love him very much and I could be with him the rest of my life. Please, any advice that can provide insight into the relationship or help me not be confused? Because the only way you'll know you are in love, is when all your needs are met by a person. It only shows that you cannot take care of yourself and that you're relying on him to pick up the slack when you drop the ball. Now, the part about him not buying you a bday present two years in a row indicates that he's not in it. So either way, he should leave you or you should leave him.
I have never been married and I don't have any kids, so I sometimes think I'm being unfair to myself by dating a divorced man with a child.

I understood and respected the fact that most men wanted children.Whether repairing the kitchen table or planning a romantic evening, the male ego and inner child have a strong need and desire to get it right and succeed.Men often feel this need after a failed marriage and while entering into a new relationship.I think that it is great that he provides for his daughter. He is uncomfortable with me living in his house with him, yet he has no problems paying the mortgage for the house that his ex-wife and child lives in.He is a great cook and he cooks for me often but he makes me feel very uncomfortable asking him for things that cost money.I have witnessed this many times and men have openly shared with me that they would love to be married again one day and “make it right this time.” I have dated divorced men who have acknowledged that they spent a great deal of time building their businesses during their marriages and they wish they had been more romantic or listened more or had brought their wives flowers more often or had been more complimentary to their spouses. There are many divorced men out there who have taken the time to work on themselves and their mistakes after their marriage ended and have a new-found commitment to making things right the next time around.
