Dating man going through divorce child
My point is, you will be the enemy for a good long while, so enjoy NOT meeting the kids for as long as possible.
Speaking of kids, it’s important not to try too hard when you meet his children.
Don’t meet the kids right away; give the relationship with you and your guy time to bloom first.
I can tell you that the kids are most willing to take out their pent up anger on you…the innocent new girlfriend who just happens to be proof that dad isn’t getting back together with mom. ” Don’t you remember how the twins acted towards dad’s new girlfriend (even though the new girlfriend was hideously rude and had a genuine dislike of kids…that’s not the point)?You wouldn’t want him judging you based on your ex-boyfriend, would you?

Speaking of going easy on him, you also need to move slowly in this relationship.So, aside from being the “bigger man” in the situation, and in spite of any feelings your guy might have towards his ex, you have to be cool so she isn’t interfering with your relationship (and yes, even unknowingly being talked about behind her back is a form of inadvertently interfering in your relationship).The best advice I can give you when dating a divorced dad is to wait a while before meeting his kids.Remember, ladies, there are three sides to every story: His side, her side, and what really happened.Don’t judge their relationship; it isn’t yours and therefore, it really isn’t any of your business.Still, dating a guy who’s been divorced, just like dating a woman who’s been divorced, does come with a certain amount of baggage.It also comes with a few things you’re going to have to accept without conflict.In this day and age, it isn’t at all unusual to find yourself dating a man who is divorced.With people getting married younger (have you ever watched “16 and Pregnant”? This leads to plenty of good-looking, eligible men on the market who have a past. However, there’s often a stigma that comes with the word “divorce”.
