However, don’t be too quick to toss out that cute dad’s phone number. Ideally, his parenting style will mesh with your beliefs about how children should be raised. Most of his time is devoted to his kids — and you must respect that.Each divorced dad is different, and you may find one you really connect with. Once you meet a divorced dad’s kids, pay attention to their behavior. Some kids will be slow to warm up to you, and even the sweetest kids have bad days and can be bratty or cranky at times, but beware of children who disrespect you or their father, or who show consistent behavioral problems. The more parenting time a divorced dad has, the more his children will influence your relationship. Unless the divorced dad is a widow, all children come with a mom.
I know many women that are single moms(comes with the territory now since I have a child of my own and connect with other moms as well) and I'd say 80% of these moms have no issue getting dates, 50% have gotten married or engaged to men that were not the biological father, and 20% are in long term relationships, and the other 10% are dating but don't seem concerned about not meeting the right man.The less you need from a man, the easier it is to enjoy him, and take your time getting to know him for who he is.And the less pressure a man feels from a woman and her screaming womb, the more he can enjoy her, too.If you’ve ever babysat, you know one kid is easier than three or four. The divorced dad doesn’t have to get along with his ex all the time, but if their relationship is rocky or she is a mean or difficult person, this can create strain on your relationship.Another important issue is you: Are you really cut out for dating a single dad?
