When you find someone you feel may be a potential mate for you, do not forget to consider your children and how they feel about the person. If they do not feel the same as you or you sense that person considers your children excess baggage, have the strength, courage and integrity to end the relationship. You should never settle for someone because you fear this might be your last chance. Settling jeopardizes not only your future happiness, but also that of your children. The "right one" will eventually come along that everyone can love and who will return that love. Anything less and you will be cheating everyone out of the best that life has to offer. You deserve the best so be patient. It will be worth the wait.
