Dating through divorce dating creative types
Don’t meet the kids right away; give the relationship with you and your guy time to bloom first.
Most divorcees come with miniature versions of themselves. Here are these little people with half your man’s DNA. His kids might look like him, but they’re still their own little people, and those people have feelings.
So, aside from being the “bigger man” in the situation, and in spite of any feelings your guy might have towards his ex, you have to be cool so she isn’t interfering with your relationship (and yes, even unknowingly being talked about behind her back is a form of inadvertently interfering in your relationship).
The best advice I can give you when dating a divorced dad is to wait a while before meeting his kids.
With people getting married younger (have you ever watched “16 and Pregnant”? This leads to plenty of good-looking, eligible men on the market who have a past. However, there’s often a stigma that comes with the word “divorce”.Even if this guy wants to be with you for the rest of his life, his kids might not be ready for it.Also, if you and his children get along too well too fast, and then you and this guy break up, it will be devastating for the children (it’s their parents’ divorce all over again).Perhaps his ex is trying to tell you who’s boss in HIS house, maybe she’s trying to talk badly about him, or butting into your relationship.While I did suggest you not talk badly about her to your guy, I never said you couldn’t give this woman a piece of your mind!
