Re: almost 6 years later
I took a look at your old posts, your exwife turned your kids against you it seems.
Doesn't hurt to keep sending cards and maybe a gift on their birthdays and the major holidays.
Sometimes that's all it takes for them to realize that you never gave up on them and if the timing is right and the opportunity arises you might get a call or a knock on your door.
Then again I understand having been there that it's very painful to keep reaching out and getting rejected and you may be at or beyond that point so you gotta do what's right for you.
As far as giving up on any possibility of meeting someone new I have to ask what makes you such a bad prospect compared to all those other guys out there? I mean if you've got a few bucks and a job, and you're half decent looking with no major mood disorders you're already in the top 10% of eligible bachelors.
