Rated 4.6/5 based on 783 customer reviews

Accept that he is going to be busy Much like single moms, a divorced man with primary custody of his children will also be striving to balance work, home and 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.

This guy is the one to blame if you wot be with him someone else will. I'd hemleavws his wife that's one thing, then i wish yourhr best, but until that day comes have a little more self respect and leave him alone Well I'm ashamed to say that I was in a similiar situation as you.

sometimes things do not work out, in which case you take the high road, try to fix the problems in your marriage, and end things maturely if neccessary. his family will never respect you and you will never respect yourself. Why would you want to be with a man that oes around his own wife and kids backs to be with anothernwoman?

Not to mention, you are both employed in some way or another and have a multitude of life, family and work commitments to work around. As your relationship grows you will become a priority, but when it’s new, you will be second fiddle to his kids.

It’s hard enough to date as an “adult”, but throw in someone else’s child or children and, whoa! While dating, I met and spent time with a few single dads and some single guys with no children. And, if you are OK with that, and understand his commitment, he will respect you and be willing to give more of his time to you.
