My two daughters and I have moved to a lovely house in a new area and we love it. I was married for 10 years, so it's been a long time since I dated and I’m terrified.I've just started my own business, which allows me to pick up the girls from school and bring in enough money to keep the wolves at bay. I'm heavier than I was when I last dated in my twenties; I've lost my confidence and I feel frumpy and invisible.

Put simply, falling in love challenges us in numerous ways we don’t expect.
