Single mum dating single dad
Just because he has kids doesn’t mean he can’t be “the one.” Here are 15 reasons to date a single dad: 1. There’s no guessing if he’ll be a good father; you KNOW that he is. He knows how to be patient, gentle and encouraging.
Even the most macho dads can be tenderhearted nurturers when the situation calls for it. They can fix toys, tape hockey sticks and build a mean LEGO tower. (They also know really cheesy family-friendly jokes.) 13. Because of his kids, he still treats his ex and her family with respect. He values character and commitment over shallower qualities. He’s unselfish, having learned to put his youngsters first. Single dads are playful and have a great sense of humor. If you make the cut, he’s serious about the relationship. If he doesn’t have full custody, he likely has every other weekend free. In fact, it was reading single parent blogs that inspired this single dad of two high schoolers to go back online!“I was growing tired of spending most nights with just my kids and wanted to get out more,” Phil says.Learning how to talk to them, how to play, what food they like and how to help them trust you takes time, effort and considerable patience.
One year ago, I asked you, readers, to please explain: How do you tell your child(ren) that you’re dating?
Honestly, I only wrote to her.” “I don’t believe in love at first site or anything like that,” he says. About a month into dating, she suggested that Phil meet her daughters. “My son figured out that we were dating, and he would like to meet,” he says. But neither of kids seem too interested.” Here’s what I’d love to know: Should Phil have a heart-to-heart about the fact that he has a serious girlfriend?
“But when I first saw her in person, I instantly knew that I had a connection to her. When I asked him, he suggested that maybe “there isn’t anything to discuss”?
Not only are you taking on her kids, there will also be an ex who is their dad lurking in the background.
Luckily, if you handle it right, you could have a rich, rewarding relationship with mum, kids – and even their dad.
I was still in the innocent world of a second grader when I put that question to you. But that’s another post altogether.) This purpose of this post is to introduce you to Phil, a very articulate single dad reader who often comments here.
