Kids can be great bonuses to meeting someone new and they can also be nightmares just as easily.
When a man gets older he realizes that the chance of meeting a childless woman thins dramatically and the question of “how” may come to his mind in dealing with a child that isn’t his.
Whether you were planning on it or not, you've fallen for a woman who has kids — now what? It takes a special man to build a relationship with someone who has children.
Check out some tips: There will be times you might not even be second (or third! Just know that her child's schedule, meals and needs will come before yours.
The only thing that it changes is knowing this relationship will have more requirements.
People in this situation can and do have success, and often end up in happy marriages.
Here are a few things to think about that can help you decide if you are mature enough or ready to date someone with children.
First thing you need to understand is there is nothing wrong with dating a person or marrying someone with kids.
If you have good rapport with your child, have regular talks with them and they respect you, then it is important that you get their approval.
Check his credentials: If you have a toddler or baby and the guy is okay with dating you, then this next step is important.
Ask your Teen: If you have a teenager it is very important that you get their approval after an introduction or two is made with your potential lover.
If your kid has daddy issues, as in wanting you to stay alone in hopes of your ex coming back into your life – then go ahead and skip the introduction to the new guy.
It's natural to be selfish and to want her attention on demand, but would you want it any other way?
