As soon as she was born, I knew I had to change my life. She gave me focus, she gave me unconditional love and I wanted to give her a father to be proud of. I owe what I am today to Alanah. All I ever wanted was to be a good dad. I’m single now, have been for a few years. I’m dating but there is nobody I would call my girlfriend. I learned sex is not the be all and end all when I was young. I’m not looking for a girlfriend, I am looking for a wife.
