Single guy no kids dating

I've walked away from a single mother with one teenage child, and I've dated another mom with three small children (and seriously considered marriage) for over a year!

While the age of the child plays a factor, if you’re not looking for anything serious, you shouldn’t play the “I’ll figure it out” game with a ready-made family.

Further, if you’re not a kid person or don’t want kids, you should not date a woman with kids to see if you’ll change your mind.

The truth of the matter is, women with kids can date whoever they want, whenever they want. Yes, we know they are the biggest part of your life and one day they will be the final factor in whether or not your relationship will work or not. Let him grow into his own thoughts and give him a chance to decide if this is a step he wants to take. Encourage him to keep his routine, his hobbies, his passions etc. If he’s one to shy away from change and you’re coming in and changing his lifestyle, he may stop giving the relationship an honest try. Even though it may be hard, try to avoid talking too much about them in the beginning, try to not share too many details of the parenting decisions you are constantly making on a regular basis and try to avoid asking for help in the beginning. You’ve been at it a while most likely, or you’ve already established your parenting techniques, methods and routines.

If you’re a woman just starting to date a guy without kids, here are a few pieces of advice to help you navigate the new relationship. Don’t distance yourself but be open to answering questions and giving him a helpful platform to understand what it all means. When you’re further down the line he will WANT to help you and your kids, but let him get there on his own. He has not needed to acquire those skills yet, so he will need to learn.

Help him, guide him and create an environment for him where he has a chance to find his own parenting skills.

Giving him tips is okay, but don’t tell him what to do.

I get questions like this from my female friends all the time.
