The Main issues is TIME the MOTHER and FAMILY.
So here is our Tips for dating a dad;
- You’re dating the entire family, not just the guy. Enjoy the time you spend together and the two of you will find a time for intimacy.
- Have fun together! If you treat the kids like friends, they will talk to you about everything and come to think of you as their best friend.
- Coming on too strong will push the kids away. Instead, be calm and polite and let them come to you.
- One day you might be the step mum. So keep an even balance between your boyfriend and the little ones; don’t neglect him in favor of the kids or he may decide you’re not giving him enough attention!
- Be stable. A single dad needs a girlfriend who is stable in her own life whether it be money, job, or living arrangements. He is too busy providing for his children to provide for you.
- Don’t compete for attention. Respect the time he needs to spend with his children and don’t make it a “me or them” situation
- Don’t make him miss a visit. No matter what the reason, you don’t ever want to make your boyfriend miss a visitation with his kids. It’s a messy enough situation already without you making it worse.
- Always be ready for a change of plans. When a kid gets sick or hurt, the father may need to be there immediately. This might happen during a date. Go with the flow and never be angry if this sort of thing happens.
- Dads are protective and create safe environments for their loved ones. Be understanding and take that as one of his most endearing qualities.
- Divorced dads are usually dealing with limited time with their kids, so they can feel guilty about dating. If he talks incessantly about his former wife in glowing or not-so-glowing terms he’s not quite ready for commitment.
- Be sensitive about when and how much time you spend on dates. If its his weekend with the kids then always schedule date night on another day.
- Make introductions cautiously. This needs to be an extremely low-key, short meeting. The initial introduction is an opportunity for the kids to check out dads new love interest. Choose a very unintimidating location. Do not go to your house. Instead, go to his house, and set a time limit. Don’t pressure the kids.
- If you want a sleepover with the kids around, you’d better be serious. Never assume your kids don’t get it. They do at all ages, even toddlers.
