Dating a woman with children
If you are dating a woman with kids, you probably aren’t doing it just for fun. You’ve got to have the talk.”I bring that up because that is a classic case where a single guy began dating a woman with a child, and had so much to learn and go through.
You most likely really, really like the woman (or love her) and you are smart enough to realize that with her, comes her children. Same is the case with Scott Trick, Divorced Guy Grinning’s guest blogger.
My kids have a father, who I expect to provide for his kids. We aren't all bad, and we deserve to be happy and given a chance.
I never realised how big a deal this was until I got divorced.
Men appear to not be written off for having children when women are. Now I am alone with men only thinking I'm fuckable and not dateable whilst my ex has his pick. I'd maybe understand if I had little ones but my children are teenagers, no trouble, they have a father who they are with the majority of the time as I work the most. Yet I had someone once say they'd marry me if I didn't have kids. Being a step parent is very rewarding in many ways as long as you learn where and when to step in.
I have been with my wife all told for 15 years and married for 11.
I've told my kids plenty of times that they already have a dad, and I would never expect them to replace him.
We now live together and are very happy with our family.
Don't muscle in, don't expect them to call you dad. Be prepared to be hurt like you've never been hurt before. If you don't have kids, you NEED to learn that you gotta let go of more then 3/4 of the shit they do. ONLY continue if you are willing to put those kids good above your own or your wifes. When she refers to her parents, she means me and her mom and not her dad.As much as I disagree with this, it's true to a large point.My step daughter has never gotten in the way of dates or sex, neither have I been placed second to her or to my children.I have a great relationship with her and she often comes to me for advice and help where she feels uncomfortable talking to her mom.
