Problems with dating a guy with kids
In my case, we haven’t really had any tension thus far. there are many people out there who have a child with their ex. Coming to terms with it depends on what the single (and childless) individual is willing to accept, all in the name of love and finding ‘the one’. something even more special is added to the relationship, as the guy would have to trust you to take such a big step in introducing you to his prized possession, and it’s often a good sign that he takes you seriously.All women aren’t the same and not every ex will bring drama or real ‘tote’ because of her ‘child fadda’s’ present relationship. Based on my experience, I’ll say that being open minded to a situation like this can be rewarding. Seeing a man with a child does give an inclination of the type of father he makes, and females – me included – tend to look for that particular quality when choosing our mates.Of course, I was also nervous that my guy would analyse me. There will be many challenges and the occasional stress factors involved, but if he’s really worth getting to know… Like I said, many more single people have children now, and, while some people have strict rules about wanting someone, who may be like them, single and childless, dating a single parent isn’t akin to the plague.All you need to do is take a deep breath, and make sure you can handle all the other variables that come along with this relationship.You could actually find a great person who shares common interests, goals and views with you. Possessing the ideal qualities is what would make the final deal in him becoming a potential husband.My guy possesses the main characteristics I usually go for, smart, sensitive, ambitious etc. So does this make a man with a child more marriage worthy?Recently, he and I made plans to have a friendly, totally platonic drink to celebrate my promotion.

Naturally, there would be hiccups; when disagreements occurred between the exes, this stressed out my guy, which in turn affected us, but we worked it out.Now it may seem rather funny, but I’ll admit that I was highly nervous the first time I met my guy’s child. In this type of relationship, things can also become even more complicated than they already are, so communication is key.Jolisa Brewster is a south girl, who is still adapting to her adopted town life.She loves to talk as much as much as she loves to write, and is currently pursuing a degree in media and communications.
