Lol, I didn't think that my choosing not to pursue a relationship with someone because I can see the pitfalls would be so contentious. I appreciate everyone's feedback. I am actually more concerned with hurting him and my children than myself. I am sure that at some point, I will find someone who is at the same point in their lives that will be just right to bring into out family.
I know that there are always risks involved with life and I am willing to take them when it's worth it but not when the odds are stacks against it working before it begins. I have actually decided to write him a letter and give it to him at the end of her last class explaining things and giving him my contact info should he choose to pursue getting to know me better that is great but if not, I won't have to see him again and have it be awkward for us.
