Shutterstock When I was younger, during my college days, my friends and I swore that we would never date a man with children. Like me, he was interested in making healthy lifestyle choices.This was mainly because growing up in my neighborhood, we were only accustomed to one type of single dad, and that was one who was barely present in his child’s life–an irresponsible I felt this way until I met a guy I really liked, only to find out that he had kids. We talked every day through phone calls and text messages. He was also an educated man who loved and looked fantastic in a good suit.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.They use their time wisely, and if he is a good father; he will want to spend lots of time with his children.Thus, the reason for avoiding serious relationships. Unconditional love is something that we all desire.Dating a man with children should not be a problem for you if you are sure that this relationship is what you want.
When you change the way that you look at it, the difference becomes quite clear.
According to a video I recently watched, dating is like test-driving a car; at least that’s how men look at it anyway.
You test-drive a car to see how it works and how you like it.
Don’t do anything you wouldn’t do in the presence of your elders. If you’re having a hard time with the kid disliking you, and this, for whatever reason cannot be resolved, then you must forfeit the relationship, or figure out a way as a team to work through the obstacles.
Refrain from cursing, bad habits and telling stories that create a negative impact. Let’s face it, mom and offspring are a package deal and no one will ever break them up!
