I post a lot on the single moms and dating board. But I am not so much into dating anymore as I am into making a long term relationship work.
We are 47 and 49 and both been married before. The kids are in their late teens so by the time we do marry they wont be so much an issue. We both have a lot in common like interests and life history (both former military). And are making some life plans such as living together and taking time off life to hike the appalachian trail.
Our current dilemma is where to live to save money to retire (temporarily) to hike the trail. We both own homes near each other. We work in nearby towns. Neither of us have our feet in cement here and neither of us are attached to certain towns or parts of the country. Just want to be close to work and he wants to be close to his son who lives part time with his mom. My daughter doesnt go to school so the school district doesnt matter.
He is more attached to his home than I am to mine. I dont like the town his home is in and neither does my daughter. He really doesnt either but its close to his son (15). I can concede and live in his home if there are many improvements done to his house. We both can concede if we find a nice home in the woods or on the water or on the bike trail we love.
Theres so much to consider.
I am looking for more how to make a long relationship work than figuring out if I found the right one. So here I am to absorb what you all have to offer.
