Dating kid someone
The good news is that you've found a woman you think you'd like to spend the rest of your life with.The potential downside, however, is that your new romance is a package deal that includes the offspring of her prior relationship.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.I've dated some pretty swell fellas in the past that have done impressive things, but this one is successfully raising two humans into respectful little dudes. He's responsible in a way that a lot of men aren't, and I get to see what kind of person he is by the way he interacts with his kids. Over time, though, the fears have washed away and I'm learning how to be a girlfriend to a dad.
Despite the fact that I work with children every day in an education environment, I'm pretty clueless when it comes to family life, bedtimes, and the art of things called Skylanders.Same when it comes to carousels and the Dumbo rides.Because I will never, ever get tired of watching Pixar movies or Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.I'll admit it, dear reader: I have a very sordid dating history.I'm closing in on 30 and while I have never been married, I have been in enough serious relationships to know exactly what I don't want in a partner.
