Dating a single dad

28 Jan

Most of that dating was fairly casual, but I have been in a couple relationships—the most recent and most serious of those relationships having lasted just under two years. Or at least I realize now looking back on it just how easy it was.You can live your life, go out on dates, and pretty much do whatever you want within the confines of the law for 26 days out of the month.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.However, you can rest assured that a man who has taken the responsibility of caring for his child/children has good qualities like commitment, responsibility, and love for his kids.They may have some ketchup or other undistinguishable stains on their sleeves that they didn’t notice. This is totally normal and something you will eventually find to be very sexy. Raise their kids, and maintain a home, and support their families. Trust me, they don’t want to be and they did their best not to be, but there is just not *quite* enough time in any day to get it all done.Sometimes, it is everything they can do to get out the door to come see you in the first place. Next, you should know that they will probably not want to take you back to their place for quite some time. 1) they really don’t want their kids meeting any new person in their life until they are sure it is going to last a long while.And 2) even if their kids aren’t there, they know that at any given time it looks like an A-bomb went off in their house.

Hopefully it’s both of us; I mean we are a package deal. I think about it, a bit longer than a moment, and regret it a little as we leave the store. Well, the truth is, life is not a television drama and this assumption is inaccurate. I adore my kids but dreaded the moment that I dropped that bomb on the women I was talking to. “Yes they have two different moms,” I text back with a sigh. I was that guy on dating websites who was once afraid to mention my kids in my profile because no one would match me, and I always felt awful about it.What they never get to see is the reality of what my life is.They never get to see that even though it isn’t always roses and sunshine, I have good relationship with the mothers of my children.
