Dating a divorced man with 3 children

Here are some things to consider when dating the divorced guy versus dating a guy who has never said “I do.” 1. Then again, maybe I’m not giving the never been married guy enough credit. Just be aware that he’s never been married, so up until now, he hasn’t. He’s carrying way less baggage than the divorced guy.

Generally speaking, children are less enthusiastic about their parents' divorce than the parents themselves—and are also less-than enthusiastic about the prospect of any new partner in the picture.

A divorced full-time dad's children may not welcome you with open arms after you do meet.

They may see you as an obstacle to their mom and dad getting back together, or they may feel jealous at the attention their father is giving to you.

A divorced parent doesn't need to and often shouldn't introduce his children to every date or casual relationship, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics' website.

Children need stability, not to see a revolving door of women walking in and out of their dad's life.

Kids: Someone who is divorced (depending on his age) most likely has kids, which means he will feel a little bit more comfortable with your kids. Nakedness in broad daylight, those annoying habits, likes clothes all over the floor, the burping and farting you never experience when you’re dating, and really the way the person lives. He’s not bashing his ex every three days, he’s not saying good-bye to his kids and then having that sad look on his face, and he doesn’t have that wounded look that says, “My wife ruined my life.” The never been married guy is fresh, untainted. Commitment: There’s commitment and then there’s commitment. He stood in front of God or a judge and a crowd of people and agreed to commit in writing. Both divorced guys and guys who have never been married can be amazing guys. In other words, I’m not saying one is better than the other.

Remember, there are some guys who have never been married who have kids, and there are some guys who have never been married but have dated a lot of women with kids, so they might be used to being around kids. The ability to be domestic, in other words, can he play house? Although, how do I know he wasn’t madly in love and then dumped? A guy who has never done that could have a commitment issue. There are advantages and disadvantages to both guys.

As the primary caregiver, this divorced dad is responsible for taking care of his children on a full-time basis and may not have a flexible schedule to accommodate your dating needs.

A single full-time dad has parenting duties such as soccer practice, PTA meetings, parent-teacher conferences and sleepover parties to attend to before he can spend time with you.

Don't stress if your guy doesn't say anything about you meeting his kids or even if he outright refuses.

It's possible that he's waiting to see if your relationship progresses before he prepares for a first meeting.
