Dating a single man with kids
Women tend to overlook these, because the situation isn't exactly what they thought it would be like. Depending on whether he has full or partial custody of his child, it can severely limit the amount of time he spends on leisure activities.
We'll explore the advantages and disadvantages to juggling co-parenting and dating below. The simple act of going out on a date may require him to hire a babysitter or ask family and friends to watch his child for a few hours, which is sometimes a major inconvenience.
It wasn't until I had a child of my own in my thirties that I preffered to be with a man with children and a past. Bottom line, if you like someone, give them a chance, kids or without kids, otherwise you never know what may have been.. Well, however, there are all sorts of situations to do with a man with kids besides just age and wisdom. And until I lived with the guy and his kids I didn't know why - because I really like kids.
Without past experiences, there are no learning experiences and a man without this may be as immature as a man in his early twenties when it comes to his own life. I am not saying to not give it a try because of age. But when you're living with someone else’s it's a whole different story.
In your late teens and early twenties: Date a man WITHOUT kids.
In your late twenties: Date a man WITHOUT kids or prior marriages if possible In your thirties and forties: Date a man WITH kids and prior marriages as long as he is secure with himself, his kids are a priority and he is honest with you on where you stand.
This is going to be different from any other relationship you’ve had in the past. Keep in mind that this guy can’t be carefree – he has to provide for his children and be available whenever they need him.
