Dating a single parent is not the same as dating a single person who doesn’t have children. You now have to compete with their kids and their ex-wife or ex-girlfriend for time and attention. If you’re not lucky, your partner might even cheat on you with their ex. dating a single parent can get tricky so you want to make sure that you are comfortable with their kids and ex-wife. If you end up marrying them, you have to take care of their bundles and all the drama that goes along with it too. You should make sure that you’re comfortable with that drama too.
There is just something bad about single parent for me personally. I don’t like dating someone who has been there and done that who will be bored at everything. I don’t like dating someone who is stuck with money or time because they have kids. They can’t be there when you want them to be there for you. I rather date a single person. People with children are so crowded with drama and problems that they might not be the best candidate to date if you’re not a single parent yourself.
When you’re dating the single parent, you should keep a few things in mind. Their kids might not like you. It’s weird for the children to see their parent dating again and it violates their trust sometimes. They think that their parent care more about dating then about them. For some reason, kids will think that their parents are sleazy when they try to date other people. Children can get very selfish sometimes. My parents even get selfish when they know that I’m dating someone.
Even my parents who have a partner get jealous and selfish so don’t expect kids without both parents to like you. They’re more likely to call you names and make fun of you because they think that you’re stealing their happiness and warmth family away from them. You do need to stay away from their kids as much as possible until you have dated their parent for a long time. You will also need to pick places away from their home so you don’t run into their kids. For example, you can go to your place, go to any other place but avoid their homes. I try this before and they just don’t like their parent’s new date.
You should make sure that the single parent is completely single and they’re no longer seeing their ex’s. Sometimes, they will get back with their ex and they will lie to you. They did have a history together so it’s better that you ask them and make sure that they’re no longer dating. When you’re dating single parent, they will want to drag their single parent problems into the relationship but just tell them that you’re dating them and that they will have to allow you some freedom in the relationship before you have to handle their kids too. It’s just fair to you. Of course, you have to be there for them but you don’t have to take all of their problems too. You’re dating them only and you will only deal with their problems if you become more serious. There are a lot of headaches for dating people with kids so you should think clear before jumping into a relationship with them.
