Dating dads with kids

His son is now 10 and I’m having a really hard time getting to like the boy.

This might sound mean, but I can’t stand him sometimes.

To do both successfully requires a balancing act - one that is made easier to juggle when you can connect with others who have similar relationships and lifestyles.

After all, your time is precious and, if you are going to balance work and family demands with dating, you want the people you meet to be worth it.

I know he’s a child, and that he gets his bad manners from his psycho mother, but everything about him just grosses me out: the way he eats; the way his mother dresses him (like a little rapper); that he’s too lazy to even clean his room.

I try so hard to hide my feelings, but my husband senses it sometimes.

They are unlikely to be receiving child support, either, and it behooves any women considering a single father to consider the fact that women are far more likely to be delinquent in paying child support than men are. Can you deal with the fact that a child will always supersede you in his father’s affections? On the other hand I cannot stand the way he rewards/gives in to her tantrums and end up angry and isolating myself.

It’s really no wonder so many single parents decide to register with sites like Elite Singles in order to meet a suitable partner.

A man raising his children alone has assumed full responsibility for someone else’s choice (the choice to have a baby), and even if the decision to have a child was nominally mutual, in actual fact, he had no say. Even without support from the other parent, single fathers still tend not to be poor because they have made entirely different life choices than single mothers. Check out these letter to Dear Prudie, I’ll be spending New Year with my boyfriend of two and a half years.

Mutual agreement to have a child is merely pleasant conversation to disguise the fact that men have no reproductive choices, other than complete celibacy or permanent sterilization, choices we would never accept as the only birth control options for women. Single fathers are also a good financial bet for potential relationships because even though they bear the brunt of the cost of raising their children, they are unlikely to be paying out alimony to the mother’s child, and obviously are not paying child support. And don’t count on the courts sending the woman to jail for failure to pay. Dating a single father is also an excellent test of a woman’s own personality. While this would normally be lovely, I’m not looking forward to it. We’ll be at his parent’s, which is out in the sticks and he has visitation with his daughter for the holidays first time since she was a baby. On one hand this should be about the time he spends with his daughter and she with her grandparents.

Another frequent comment I get is “”, so let’s talk about them.

And even after Junior arrives, she still has at least two options in front of her: She can refuse to identify the father and place the child for adoption, or she can surrender the child under safe haven laws and walk away from all financial, social, legal and ethical responsibilities.
