I'm new here but I've been posting on the EAS board for a few weeks. I have been separated for a year, and I recently ended an affair with a guy who, although he did leave his wife, in the end told me that although he loved me, he couldn't be with me because he can't get over the fact I have a daughter. It was devastatting.
So I'm wondering... is this common? Have many of you experienced something like this? Since I'm now really single again, I would eventually want to start dating, but this experience has made me pretty wary.
