Hi! I am not sure if this will work, but willing to try…
There are a few different things here, so bear with me…
First, I am a single dad, and my oldest daughter just moved in with me. She is turning 21 soon, and her PS3 is taking a crap on her… I would like to get her a brand new PS4 with games, but I am barely making ends meet. She is a gamer like me, and has been very frustrated with her system not working. She is a good kid, with a good head on her shoulders. She is smart, independent, and I want to see her succeed! This is also a good father/daughter activity since I enjoy gaming too!
Second, I would also like to get a little ahead on my bills (electric, gas, car payments, etc) so I am not just struggling between paychecks. Yes, I do work full time, but just barely make enough to get by. I try to make sure all my bills are paid, so that I have a place to call home. I live in a small, one bedroom apartment, and it is cramped. Even before my daughter moved it, it was cramped. I would eventually like to move to a bigger place, but cannot currently afford it.
Third, I have another daughter who just turned 11. She is great, but I am getting frustrated at always telling her that I don’t have the money to go anywhere. I can rarely take them to the movies, have not been to the zoo in years, etc… We mainly just stay home. I know that quality time when them is important, but I don’t want her childhood memories to be boring. I would like to be able to take them to fun places more often. I want her to have fun memories!
And last, I have a wonderful girlfriend! After my divorces from the mothers of my 2 kids, I was beginning to think that I would not find someone to love again. I have had a few relationships between my last divorce and my current girlfriend, but they did not go anywhere. Now, the girlfriend I have now is amazing! She truly loves me for me! I can truly be my goofy, nerdy self with her! We are close to celebrating our one year anniversary together, and I could not be happier!! But, along with my kids, I cannot afford to do anything truly special for this wonderful woman that has entered my life! She has met both of my daughters, and they like her too! She is sweet, caring, and I want to spend the rest of my days with her!
Finally, I just want to say that any help would be greatly appreciated! I feel that I am a good person, and that I try to provide for my loved ones. My 2 daughters that I love more than anything, and my wonderful girlfriend that has shown me the love that I needed!
I work hard, and try to provide. I am just a guy trying to take care of my family the best I can. Though, as my kids get older, I feel that I cannot provide as much as I would like and what they deserve! I am not asking for anyone to buy me a house, or to be able to send my kids to the best schools. I am just asking for help to give them a bit better than what I can currently provide. Any help would be appreciated!
