Problems with dating a divorced man with kids
I've not only dated a man with children, but I'm also the child of a divorced man.My dad started living with my stepmother when I was really young and as I grew older I started resenting their relationship.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.The Cop has two daughters and a demanding job, obviously.
I totally understood why he had to cancel, but the situation also reminded me why he and I could never work and why I will never date a man with children again.
Dating a man with sole custody of his children may seem a little frightening at first but it has many advantages for the stepparent.
I had dated a man with two children that he had every other weekend and it did not work out mostly because of the way their mother was raising them.
Obviously, there are exceptions to this rule of not dating a man with children, but before you embark on a tumultuous relationship like this, you should heed my warning and save yourself a headache and heartache.
So you met Mister Right – a glorious knight in shining armor complete with the big white stallion who has successfully swept you off your feet, whisking you away to the castle of your dreams. One major problem that not only walks and talks but talks back and it has turned your perfect fantasy into a complete nightmare. Everything about this man was what I had spent a lifetime looking for and I was not going to let a teenage boy get in the way.
