It's kind of like hanging out with your platonic female divorced friend and hearing her perspective on your divorce and your love life issues.Reply I've met this extraordinary, smart and beautiful woman that has two girls (8 and 10) from a previous marriage. We have had a chance to socialize a few times but have not dated yet.But, he’ll be the first to tell you, it wasn’t always a piece of cake.Here is Scott’s guest post that gives us a glance at the transition from single guy to married guy with step kids, and all the wonderful things that can happen if you are open-minded, have insight into what the kids are going through, and just give it time.
