What Are Divorced Men Thinking: A Manly Question While in a Lyft.
I took two Lyft rides and had great conversations in both. I am going to talk about the first one here and will save the other with "Bob" for a later episode.
My first ride was with "Sid," and I had a deep feeling with our conversation that he was struggling. Sid mentioned to me that he had been divorced for two years. We first started to talk about just getting through the divorce, and then we talked about staying connected with his kids. Then he asked a doozie of a question.
I was not sure where our conversation was about to go? I was even nervous but me, being an open book I was ready. Or was I?
Sid phrased the question in an exciting way and knowing that English is not his first language, the way he phrased it did make sense. What he said was, "can I ask you a manly question?" In the back of my mind, I was hoping that it was not going to be a sexual question. For example, of having your new "friend" over your place but the kids are there too. Again, that is what landed in my head as far as a manly question.
The question was about how to handle when you are around your former and their significant other?
FEW! I can definitely handle this one.
On this Parenting Tip Tuesday podcast, I will talk about what my answer was and what I have gone through even most recently.
I want to also share with you my calendar because I want to help more of you when it comes to divorce, dating after divorce, and creating a blended family. Please use this link to my calendar for a free one on one introduction.
Enjoy this episode, and now if you will excuse me, my coffee is getting cold.
