One thing parenting doesn’t make easy though, it dating.You read books on how to give birth and how to breastfeed, but learning how to date when you have a child seems much more complicated.
If there’s a crisis with your lover’s ex and the kids need to come over, or little Johnny has a hockey game, your plans will need to take a backseat.
This can work in your favor, however, if you’re the kind of person who enjoys alone time or can easily free-flow with your plans.
Maybe you’re thinking, ‘Hey, it’s OK; he only has them every other weekend, so basically I can forget his ex exists.’ I want to hug you and pat your head.
The ex will always be a part of your new love’s life, and their kids.’ You’ll always hear about them, the kids will talk about them, the kids may even look like the ex you so desperately want to forget ever existed.
It had been a long time since I viewed myself as an individual rather than a wife or a mother. I was no longer looking for someone to complete my life – that role belonged to my daughter.
Instead, I wanted someone to join us and add to our happiness.
You have a lot in common with this person, they’re witty and entertaining, they’re sexy AF and you have a sneaking suspicion the sex is gonna be good. You know they have kids, but even though you aren’t really a kid person, nothing’s going to harsh your buzz when you’re drugged up on their awesomeness. Once upon a time, I began to date a man with two children.
He’s a great guy and such a good fit for me in many ways. I don’t want kids of my own, yet here I am, co-parenting at his side like a pro.
