Dating a girl with a kid
I’m a rational person, so I realize that a man’s children should and will come first.But this creates a conflict because a woman wants to feel secure and wanted in a relationship, but if she demands greater importance than his children, then she comes off as an insensitive bitch.
So this brings me to my first point: If you date a man with children, you can never expect to come first.His youngest daughter was extremely sickly or maybe just accident-prone.It was difficult for us to make plans because we had different schedules, and, to make matters worse, his daughter would get sick (or whatever) when we had plans.There was a time not so long ago (like right before I started writing this article) when dating someone with a kid was not an option, regardless of the situation. There are extra factors to consider when someone has a kid.The most obvious question is whether or not the mother is looking for a boyfriend or a father, or both. If I was to date a single mother, I would be wasting my time and her time.Recently, he and I made plans to have a friendly, totally platonic drink to celebrate my promotion.
He canceled the day of because his youngest daughter had hit her head and he’d spent the previous night in the emergency room.
Coming from a stable Catholic-ish family, I grew up under the impression that divorce was something superficial people do when they get bored.
Is there still a social stigma surrounding divorce that there once was?
I did this once and, let me tell you, I learned my lesson.
I dated The Cop off-and-on for about six years and I have to admit that love kept me from realizing just how big a problem his children were in our relationship.
Society is much different today than it was when my parents and teachers were kids.
