How do you cope with not being with your child every day? I have shared custody of my 11 year old daughter, am her soccer coach and see her more than 4-5 days a week, but I still feel horrible that I'm not there everyday, and I can't shake it. I have a very amicable relationship with ex, but just feel like I should be there for my daughter. I hate missing out, and I feel like my relationship with her will suffer if I add another relationship into the mix. I haven't dated anyone seriously, or let her meet anyone in almost 4 years. How do people do it??
