2 single parents and long distance love

Default profile image
Gave online dating a go. I'm a single mother of a 14 y/o girl and we are from Canada. Within hours of my profile going up a man from the US messaged me. He is a single, divorced man in the US military with a 5 y/o son, stationed outside of the US until March. We hit it off from the first email. Everything in common: goals, likes, dislikes, interests, religion. Anything important for a relationship, aside from our distance; we have. We Skype, text, talk all day. After 2 months of contact we finally were able to meet in person. He happened to be flying home to the States for a month and I happened to have a 4 day weekend free during that time....now, he had not seen his little boy in a year so I was very hesitant on coming as I know the importance this trip held for him and his son and there was no way I was going to take away from that. He assured me to come and that he'd spend time with me after dinner each day. Day 1 we spent a large portion of the evening together as it was our first in person meeting & it went so well, he kept telling me how much he loves me and plans for our future. Day 2 we chat shortly before dinner and he said he'd see me in a few hours. It was getting late and he still wasn't here so I called and his son apparently had a fever so I said he should stay there and we'd see one another the following day. Well, day 3 came we didn't talk all day. I missed his call twice due to being in the shower and then at the pool and my calls have gone unanswered. I left the following morning. My feelings are extremely hurt as he promised me that we would have a lot of time together at night which only happened once. I can't emphasize enough how much I understand the need for him to spend every second he can with his son, so I feel guilty for feeling disappointed. I'm seeing him again in October and know that disappointments and frustrations come with long distance relationships and that all this hard work and sadness will pay off when we are together in March.... I guess I'm just looking for outside opinions on if what I feel is fair or if I'm being totally selfish here.

Hey Troublrdcdn, First of all I would like to say that I don't understand why 'Violetblues' posted that reply as I don't think this was a scam at all. So I truelly think that you have nothing to worry about there. As for feeling guilty about feeling dissapointed NO WAY!! We as humans have the right to feel disappointed, that's what makes us humans. It depends on how we deal with that emotion that counts. And from what you wrote you handled yourself in a very dignified manner ie. didn't do the screaming phone call crap that some self centered women would do in that situation. So relax. Let us know how it goes. Don't hesitate to post again with any other worries that you may have about this. Kato
