    Post Divorce Dating Dilemma

    I would truly welcome all responses. I took a healthy amount of time to heal post-divorce. I met a great man, where our relationship together compliments us both. It’s fresh air to both of us. His marriage was 23 yrs w 2 boys 15 & 18. Me, 10 yrs, 1 10 yr old. We clarified things early on as to our priorities, etc. It’s been good…14 months later, the only recurring thing that comes up every few months is a breakdown of communication due to residual crud from our marriages. We recognize it, talk about it, but the solution to it eludes us. We are both ok with a non-traditional relationship, but this trips us up. I would say this tends to be on him more, though I can do it too. But making each other, if not intentionally, but due to our other priorities, making each other feel we’re not the priority. How much expectation can we place on one another realistically? What if we’re not looking to grow together, ‘traditionally’ now, are we hitting that T-intersection???
