Dating someone with 3 kids
They had a child, and another on the way, so although there was an instant attraction he was off-limits.In the past, I’d always swiped left on a man with an ex-wife or kids.I have friends who have gotten upset because a woman they are dating has to drop everything for their child. A woman should not be placed in a position to choose between the child she loves and the man she likes.If you don’t understand that, then you aren’t ready for this type of relationship and it is best if you do not bother wasting her time or yours. I’ve written on whether you need the baby’s father approval before — and for the record, no you do not.
” First, whether a man has children of his own or not, there is nothing wrong with preferring to date women without children.
I pictured myself starting a family with a partner who was new to it all, too.
But I’ve had to accept the fantasy of doing it afresh with someone is over; life doesn’t come packaged neatly into the boxes you want.
While the age of the child plays a factor, if you’re not looking for anything serious, you shouldn’t play the “I’ll figure it out” game with a ready-made family.
Further, if you’re not a kid person or don’t want kids, you should not date a woman with kids to see if you’ll change your mind.
