Advice for dating a man with a child


You have to make sure you're serious and your partner is serious before you bring the kiddos into the mix.It's not fair to the kids if you aren't going to stick around.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.Recently, he and I made plans to have a friendly, totally platonic drink to celebrate my promotion.The Cop has two daughters and a demanding job, obviously.His youngest daughter was extremely sickly or maybe just accident-prone.So this brings me to my first point: If you date a man with children, you can never expect to come first.I’m a rational person, so I realize that a man’s children should and will come first.



I totally understood why he had to cancel, but the situation also reminded me why he and I could never work and why I will never date a man with children again.Most men try to avoid conflict with the women in their lives at all costs, so it’s a pretty safe bet that he will go along with whatever ridiculousness his children’s mother puts him through.I think it was much more than a coincidence that The Cop’s ex was never available to pick up their daughters early from school or take them to doctor appointments.So here is my advice about dating people with kids.
