Dating a single father with kids
One thing I will tell a first date, “You can ask me anything. And while we are no longer a relationship we went through the whole process, getting to know each other breaking up, without any drama. And I usually share this concept on the first date. Maybe this explains a lack of second dates.) Here it is. The beauty of that is feelings include the ability to fully love.So when opportunity arrises I look forward to being 100% present with my feelings.
Don’t miss the exciting conclusion of this single dad’s journey: A Dad In Love, Again(I’ve got two kids and a full-time job, but I’d still like to find time to be with someone.)1. I will admit that getting back out there, for me, as a man, initially was about sex.It was a moment of finding myself, not discovering that she was younger. What she might be thinking, her motivations for sitting at the table are for us to discover, hopefully, via clear and honest communication.I discovered that I wasn’t interested in this attractive, younger, woman for a variety of reasons I tried to articulate. There are just as many women in online dating who do the exact same thing. And I think our culture’s focus on youth is way off base.But I’m not sure porn is any more the driver then the Miley-Cyrus-type circus of celebrity and mainstream media. And it has an effect on all of us, adults and teenagers. I am hoping to get better, clearer, and more honest with each attempt at being in a relationship.There might have been a disconnect on those terms in my previous marriage. I know that I feel deeply and I enjoy being expressive of those feelings.
If feelings scare you, that might be something for you to look at.
Get to know if you like talking to, as well as looking at your potential partner. But if you slow the drive to the bedroom you might avoid getting mixed up in something purely physical.
It can blur your vision when trying to figure out if you want to hang with this person for the long run.2. (I’d like to keep getting fitter, but my joy is genuine.) In several previous online dates I found myself sitting across the table from very attractive, usually younger, women who had nearly nothing in common with me. The Spark Is Only a Start If the chemistry (tail wag) is ON, there are still a ton of steps along the path before we’re in a relationship. (If I’m a reader and you’re a reality tv junkie, we might not go the distance.) We need to synchronize our schedules over time. If we do decide to sleep together I want to know that we’ve just become mutually exclusive.
Feelings are the key to compatibility, in my opinion.
I look forward to having another opportunity to learn about myself “in relationship” at some point. But I believe by having my priorities clear and articulated I can do a better job of finding and sorting through the process of finding that NEXT RELATIONSHIP. UPDATE: Responding to a comment on another site about this post, I’d like to share a few more observations. Here are several points where I think we need more discussion.1. Yes, I selected these potential dates and knew their age, and also that they had not ever had children.
