Add a failed marriage and couple of kids into the mix, and it's a whole new level of "it's complicated." One of the hardest parts of being a single dad is that it can be really, really lonely.
Relationships are complicated enough without adding in several more layers of “what ifs” – so it’s almost easier just to push through the loneliness, and spare myself and the boys any risk of further hassle.
I live by myself, I work from home – really, the only time I go out is to pick up or drop off the kids, and one night a week when I have to head off to university to teach.
