Not to mention, you are both employed in some way or another and have a multitude of life, family and work commitments to work around. As your relationship grows you will become a priority, but when it’s new, you will be second fiddle to his kids.It’s hard enough to date as an “adult”, but throw in someone else’s child or children and, whoa! While dating, I met and spent time with a few single dads and some single guys with no children. And, if you are OK with that, and understand his commitment, he will respect you and be willing to give more of his time to you.It is just that they are not used to seeing her with someone special.They just want to be certain that she is going out with the right person.She may not have the time to see you as often as she’d like, and it’s not always as simple as hiring a sitter to go out.Instead of taking the limits on her time as a slight, learn to look for other expressions of her feelings for you.
When you’re dating a single mom, this isn’t necessarily the case.Eventually, they could pull down this veil of supposed strength.It is your responsibility to be patient and understanding. This characteristic they possess could help them filter through the process. They will be suspicious of you at first, although they only want to be protective of her.Let me tell you, I quickly learned that the single dads were, in general, the best guys I met. Parents are super protective of their kids (think about your mom and dad).They were kind, patient, considerate, and frankly, not self-centered jerks. Introducing a new person to a child’s life is a serious thing.Women who are single are used to being independent. Dating independent people like this comes with its own unique set of challenges. They just might believe in playing their cards their own way, without any external support.
