Relationship advice dating a single dad
If you’re okay with your partner not being able to stay out as late as you might want them to, or them bringing their child along to activities that you do together, then you could be ready to date someone with kids.
If you don’t think you are able to compromise yet, dating people without children is probably the right thing for you.
Rule #1: Be Realistic You might be used to someone who only has you to spend his time and money on, but with a single dad, the situation will be very different. Try not to be too upset if he can't afford to take you on extravagant dates or he has to cancel because his daughter got sick. And when you bring single parents, their former partners, and their children into the mix, things get even messier.But that doesn't mean that every attractive single dad you meet is off limits!Just know that it's a normal response, so try to get through it.Rule #6: You May Have Different Ideas About the Future Whether or not you're a single parent yourself, the two of you may have conflicting opinions about cohabitation, marriage, and future children.
They may make the assumption that ‘he has already had his kids, he won’t want any more with me’ or they rule him out because they want a fresh beginning with a ‘virgin dad’.
