Men women children dating child
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.
They need to get comfortable with the fact that she's not going to bring someone into their lives who will do them harm or ship them off to a boarding school in Brazil.
They also need to appreciate that the inclusion of a new male figure in their lifestyle doesn't diminish the importance of their real dad.
Don’t expect him to have loads of time on his hands.
If he’s a responsible dad and works hard to provide for his child, you can’t fault him for it, but also don’t think that you have to settle for a lack of time together if it’s not something you’re comfortable with.
We exchanged account names for social media, and I learned through his Instagram that he had a daughter. I thought about what I had said when I was in college: A man with kids is a no-no. I don’t want to be groomed to be a child’s stepmother.

But NEVER think it’s okay to put him in a position where he has to choose between spending time with his kid or quality time with you.You can tell when someone knows how to handle their business and when someone doesn’t.Would you want to be with someone who doesn’t treat being a father as if it were a precious gift? If you’re an individual who demands a lot of attention, you may also want to be honest with yourself about whether or not you are okay with being second in a man’s life.Whether they decide you're the coolest dude on the planet or punctuate every exchange with "You're not my real dad" depends on your confidence in yourself and your readiness for parenthood.Depending on the age and maturity of the child, the upheaval created by Mom and Dad no longer living under the same roof doesn't need to be complicated by premature exposure to a succession of prospective replacements.
