Dating a man with teen children
Many great, available men are seen as less than desirable partners because they have children from a previous relationship.
While there are hassles and roadblocks, to categorically dismiss a good man with whom you have great chemistry because he has kids may be doing yourself a great disservice.
I dated The Cop off-and-on for about six years and I have to admit that love kept me from realizing just how big a problem his children were in our relationship.
Recently, he and I made plans to have a friendly, totally platonic drink to celebrate my promotion.
There is, however, a rare chance that his children love you, but you just don’t see a future with him.
Now the breakup is even more difficult because there’s a third party involved.
Dating a man with kids differs a bit from dating a childless guy as the guy’s ex is usually out of the picture -- not dropping off kids every weekend.
Not to mention the children’s museum doesn’t often make it onto the date night hot spot list for guys without kids, and spontaneity is almost certainly a childless concept.
