By this point, we were doing the work of any blended family. And in speaking more directly about what I'd wanted in a relationship from the onset—candor enabled by technological circumstance—my relationship had given me a safe rate of introduction to the family I needed.

I did fart on the dog.”* * *The night before our wedding, B and I stonewalled one another, nerves getting the better of us. We dreaded our wedding would turn into a memory of loss not gain. Now that B and I live under the same roof, I can't say that technology simply bridged a gap between two countries, nor gave us the space to reveal our true selves.Did I know, she asked, what I was looking for in a romantic relationship?I’d come out of a break-up with a woman who had a young child.

After the end of an 18-year relationship with the boys’ other mother, we’d be foolish to think I could simply join a family.As I’d said to a friend earlier that day, “If she’s not already in my bed, it’s too far to go.”Emotional distance has always gotten the better of me, so my friend, a couples’ therapist, suggested I try online dating.The safety of not having to meet a person in real life, she said, might lead me to speak more honestly about myself.
