After two years of amiably living together and raising your child, you and your boyfriend have decided not to live together anymore. There was no cheating, there were no fights--you two simply realized that you no longer love each other. You maintain a friendly relationship but don't really spend time together unless it is to drop off your child at one another's home.
You now live in an apartment, sharing your child's time with your ex. You are twenty-five, and your child is four.
What is your child's personality like? (Roll)
1/2/3 friendly towards others, but shy/quiet, likes low-key things
4/5 a troublemaker for the most part, but they can also be sweet when they want to be
6/7/8 very outgoing, loves attention and active things
When you enroll your child in preschool, you are a little surprised to find that the teacher is a young, attractive man, one that many of the (married) mothers take notice of. He's great with your child, and after he realizes you are a single mom he seems to take an interest in you--being extra friendly, making jokes, taking a bit longer to talk to you before you leave. One day, you arrive while the children are still busy playing a game outside with the teacher's assistant, and after talking for a few minutes, your child's preschool teacher says, "I hope this isn't awkward, but I'd like to take you out on a date."
His age: 27 (two years older than you)
Worried it might make things awkward, you accept, figuring that if one date goes badly you can stop. Otherwise... he's very handsome, very kind, and he makes you laugh. You decide you have nothing to lose. You tell your child about your plan to go on a date with their teacher, and they are a little confused on the whole idea, but don't seem completely opposed to it.
Your first date goes surprisingly well, and you two continue to date, even after your child finishes preschool. Your boyfriend (your child's teacher) has told your child that when they're not at school (and now that they're finished with preschool) that they can call him by his first name. As your relationship matures, your child and your boyfriend grow close, as you'd hoped.
