Single dad dating
[Tweet This] Routine in family life is important even under ideal circumstances, and parenting is Job One. Of course, a lot depends on where things are with their mom; but, when in doubt, err on the side of discretion. Accountability is always a good call, but it’s especially helpful when you’re exploring these new relationships.
I personally believe that if you’re a single lady looking for love, and you’re excluding single dads from your search, you’re making a mistake.
While it’s true that his kids wouldn’t like anyone with their father, it isn’t anyone—it’s you.
You are the woman who’s actually there, feeling resented, in the way, and often tossed aside for more important things.
I get lost in my own plans to ensure that I get whatever it is I think I need and become convinced that there must be some “answer” that I just haven’t found yet. There’s no plan, no specific actions that I can take that will ensure the success of this relationship (or, incidentally, cause its demise).
Either his kids will come around or they won’t, and either my boyfriend and I will be able to move through all of it together or we won’t.
