What to do when dating a man with a child

When I was younger, during my college days, my friends and I swore that we would never date a man with children. Like me, he was interested in making healthy lifestyle choices.

He was still a person, and I would feel bad if I didn’t give him a chance just because he had a kid. However, I learned there was another child later on, an infant only six months old.

I had to do the math because something wasn’t adding up.

Again, while I liked him, I learned that he was not an upfront person, and Still, I learned a lot from that situation.

Even though my friends and I swore that we would never date men with children, I’m learning that having kids doesn’t automatically make you unsuitable for dating.

You can still date someone with children, but there is a way to be responsible without affecting the child.

It is important to remember that you are dating him, his kids. If it’s just a casual situation or the beginning stages where the two of you are still trying to figure each other out, there’s no need to stress or obsess over his responsibilities. For those of you dating with kids, I understand that sometimes you don’t disclose that information because you want to have a social life and would like to keep certain things separate, but honestly, everything will eventually overlap once things pick up with the person you are dating.

It’s only fair to be straightforward instead of dropping bombs later because some people may not be okay with dating people with children.

When dating a guy with kids, find out what kind of package deal he comes with.

If he has a child, what type of dealings does he have with the child’s mother? How would that potentially affect you in terms of dating?

If avoiding drama with the mother doesn’t seem doable, then run for the hills and never look back.

You will never fully get to experience or enjoy your relationship if there’s always a third party stirring the pot.
