Single and dating with children
I will occasionally host an event, but I encourage our members to host events, and to also post their ideas for events.
If you do not see events near your neighborhood, please, please go ADD AN EVENT and post it.
We exchanged account names for social media, and I learned through his Instagram that he had a daughter. I thought about what I had said when I was in college: A man with kids is a no-no. I don’t want to be groomed to be a child’s stepmother.
But then I had to think about dating from the perspective of a parent.
He was still a person, and I would feel bad if I didn’t give him a chance just because he had a kid. However, I learned there was another child later on, an infant only six months old.
I had to do the math because something wasn’t adding up.
It is important to remember that you are dating him, his kids. If it’s just a casual situation or the beginning stages where the two of you are still trying to figure each other out, there’s no need to stress or obsess over his responsibilities. For those of you dating with kids, I understand that sometimes you don’t disclose that information because you want to have a social life and would like to keep certain things separate, but honestly, everything will eventually overlap once things pick up with the person you are dating.For example, unless things are getting serious between the two of you, you shouldn’t feel obligated to spend time with his child.If it’s just casual dating, then you need to remember that you are just dating him.Plus, the child’s mother may not be happy about a complete stranger being around their child so closely.Also, be sure to observe what type of father he is. Does he make being a father a full-time job or is he a part-time dad? When you see what type of father he is, it allows you to see him in a different light.
