I could use some confirmation.
I think you made the right decision. This guy sounds like he's really into himself and that HIS needs and wants come way before yours or his daughters. And he doesn't like kids? What if you'd want to have your grandchildren over some weekend when he"s there? I guess that would be a no go with him or he probably would not want to come over cause those pesky grandkids are there. It really doesn't sound like you 2 were compatible. You want more than he has to give. He sounds a lot like my oldest brother who's been living alone as a single man since his divorce 20 years ago. He is VERY set in his ways and his relationships never last very long because he IS so set in his ways and not willing to really go out of his way or change one iota for a GF. He never wanted to see them more than once or twice a week, and IF they wanted more time than that he would tire of them and break up with them cause they were wanting too much of his ME time. And
It seems like you have different value systems where family is very important to you and not so much to him.
