I'd rather be single for the rest of my life than to get married and end up going through another divorce. My divorce ended 9 years ago and as I mentioned, I got married just over 2 years ago. Throughout that time I dated a bit and I learned a thing or two about the unique issues that one encounters dating as a single dad.
She has some real concerns about how the relationship is going and wanted to hear from my perspective the true dynamics of what she's experiencing.
Let me first say that I'm not a relationship expert. I’m nothing more than a dad who has walked an interesting path on my way to raising two wonderful kids.
Some might feel that they’ve already won his heart so there’s no need to impress the kids. They are not to be competed with; instead, they should be embraced and honored for who they are.
This can be more harmful than I could describe here. Any other approach generally leads to an unfavorable outcome.
I’ve had some real life experiences regarding this topic and I've learned somehow to navigate my way through the circumstances.
Now I have the privilege of sharing a bit of what I’ve learned on this blog. You might also know that my first marriage didn't quite work out as I'd hoped.You can read Today we have a blended family of four.Not long ago, I had a household of 2 - just my daughter and me.These are not the type of dads I'm talking about here.I'm referring to dads who make their kids a priority and try their best to balance being dads while building new relationships.Don’t be in too much of a rush to meet his kids – get to know him first.
