Don’t be afraid of the single parent: he could be one of the most easy-going, loving and patient men you ever meet. Parenthood has a way of doing that to a person. But if you are going to date a single parent, you should know that comes with slightly different rules than dating someone who doesn’t have kids.
I met this man at a club about a year ago. Already this was probably a seedy situation but shortly after that night when we met up with each other I realized he’s a pretty decent guy. As we got to know each other he started to reveal more and more about himself. I knew early on in the relationship that he had children but with each month, he seemed to add another. By the sixth month we were exclusive and he dropped the bomb, telling me he had 9 children with 7 different women.
By this point I really liked him and had so much invested, I figured I shouldn’t judge him too harshly for this. It was all in the past.
The problem came in when I learned that sometimes he sleeps at one of the mothers’ home. He told me that after he spends time with his child over there, he feels that if he travels all the way back to his house, he’ll fall asleep at the wheel.
Obviously, I have a problem with this and I’m wondering one, do you think I’ve made a mistake off top dating a man with seven baby moms and secondly, how should I ask him to stop sleeping over at his ex’s house?

Dear Dating A Straight Shooter,
Every once in a while, I’ll get a question that requires some very deep thought and a nuanced, multi-layered response. And sometimes, I’ll get a question involving a situation so complex and/or serious that I’ll admit I have no answers; no clue about what the person needs to do.
Catisha: How does a woman become more approachable for a man? LOL! I have been told I am not approachable, but I speak, make sure I give eye contact. I would like a male’s perspective.
D.Y.: You’re on the right path. Making eye contact and speaking definitely do help. Really though, the best advice I can give for a woman trying to be more approachable is to just look like you’re enjoying yourself and your life. Genuinely positive energy attracts people.
