Dating someone with kids when you still feel like something of a kid yourself can be a challenge.
To some (myself included), age ain't nothin’ but a number.
The man you are dating is a father first and foremost.
His obligations as a parent extend for the entire day and night.
Knowing that I was moving back to a small town after years of living in cities, I looked at my therapist and said: "I can't date someone who has children. And while I was in love with both the man and the kid, I was totally lost. There is nothing wrong with single or divorced parents. But my friends back home in the small town I was moving back to? He had a son with his ex-girlfriend, who I also remember from my past.
It's not fair to the kids if you aren't going to stick around.Recognise that a father’s love for his children is paramount, or should be.Trying to compete with children for their dad’s affection is a catastrophic strategy that will end in tears – yours.It turns out there is very little literature on how to date someone who has children. After running into him over a period of months, we began dating.Overnight, I was thrown into a brave, new world -- one that involved a tween.I let the cards fall where they may and go with my gut when it comes to chemistry between me and another person. If you elect to date above your generational boundaries, it's a reality and one that recently became mine.
