Her: Do you still love her?
I don't know why we lie when women ask us that question. Well, I understand why. We don't want to hurt our special lady's feelings. But the truth of the matter is this: Feelings don't just disappear because you ended a relationship. Over the course of the relationship the connections you made with her family and friends stay with you forever. Also, factor in the children you shared with that person. Can you honestly say to yourself that you DO NOT love the woman that gave birth to your children or spent X amount of years with?

A blended family is a family with children from different relationships. The woman you are with has children from a different relationship, you have children from a different relationship, and finally the children from the current relationship. These situations are naturally a nightmare for people to deal with. The children are often insecure with things and often fight between themselves. The couple struggles to show all of the children that there are no favorites. Finally, the absent parent struggles to deal with their child being in the middle of all your mess.

Being with a woman who has children from a previous relationship can be difficult. Especially if you too have children from a previous relationship. There are always that fear in the back of your mind that you may be spending more time with this "woman's" child than your own, or that your children may be jealous of the fact that there are other children occupying your free time.
I decided a month ago that I would get my groove back by working out on a consistent basis and taking better care of myself. You see as men get older, they tend to get lazy. It hurts to admit it, but it's true. Your testosterone decreases, your metabolism slows down, and you just don't have energy. I woke up one day and looked in the mirror and was disgusted in what I saw and said to myself, "NO MORE!"
