Single dad and dating
Every time I brought him up, she changed the subject. When you’re a parent, your life revolves around your child.
Robert Grand: Any woman who dates a single dad needs to scale down her expectations and not expect to meet a single dad’s kids right away.
Dan: And another thing — I think any woman who dates a single dad needs to keep in mind that there’s also a real mom in the picture and if you take on the mothering role too much, that’s not going to play well with the kids. I really believe most kids want their parents to be with someone.
Patrick Morris, 43, public relations director; Saratoga, NY. Q: What’s the most important thing for a woman to know when dating a single dad?
Darryl Wooten: Any woman who dates me must know that my kids are everything to me, so if a woman isn’t into my children, it’s never going to work out.
