Dating my stepson Jimmy Michaels has been a challenge. I am Pristine Edge, a stepmom, and I have to admit: it’s been difficult. I feel a special bond with Jimmy, ever since he first came into our lives. He’s a wonderful young man, and I’m so lucky to have him in my life. I’ve tried to be a good role model for him, but I’ve also felt a strong connection with him. When I first started dating Jimmy’s father, I was hesitant and unsure of how to handle the situation. I was worried about what people would think and how it would affect my relationship with my stepson. I was afraid of making a mistake and ruining what we had. But, I quickly realized that I had nothing to fear. Dating Jimmy has been a wonderful experience. He’s mature beyond his years and he’s smart and funny. We’ve had some great conversations and I’ve been able to get to know him better. We’ve been able to share experiences, and I’ve been able to gain a deeper understanding of who he is and what he wants from life. I’ve learned to appreciate him even more and I’m proud of him and all his accomplishments. This has been my secret confession as a stepmom. I’ve been blessed to have such a wonderful relationship with my stepson, and I’m grateful for all the joy he has brought into my life.
