Here is Scott’s guest post that gives us a glance at the transition from single guy to married guy with step kids, and all the wonderful things that can happen if you are open-minded, have insight into what the kids are going through, and just give it time.

Step Parenting – From Frustration to Love by Scott Trick Almost a year ago I went from being single to married with two step kids. Frustration One of the frustrations a step parent can experience is the fact that the step child does not know how to act in public with his or her new step parent.
All it takes is for one of them to be a bad influence and you have trouble. I'm 31, and i'm dating a woman who just turned 39 and has 2 kids (4 and 6).

Reply I've met this extraordinary, smart and beautiful woman that has two girls (8 and 10) from a previous marriage. We have had a chance to socialize a few times but have not dated yet.
In conversations she pointed out that her daughters are her top priority and she's not looking for a new relationship. I know I have to respect her space, her daughters, but how can I avoid getting in the friend zone indefinitely?
