If you are a devoted, single parent who has found time to date, then kudos to you! In the midst of being swept off your feet and newly in love, you may be excited…and anxious…to introduce your guy to your child(ren). After all, it makes sense for you to want your children to meet someone who has become an important part of your life – either to seal the deal and affirm your love, or make you take a step back from someone who may not be a fit. If you’re wondering about when and how you should bring this new person into your child’s life, consider these things before making that all important introduction.
I’ve often heard men sternly proclaim that they won’t date a woman with ‘baggage,’ referring to a woman with children. Some men have made up their minds that dating a woman with kids brings extra personal belongings into a relationship that they would prefer not deal with; but it takes two to tango. And just as there are women with kids there are many brothers with children. So is it more acceptable and less complicated for a woman to date a man with kids?
While after a certain age, the pickings may be slim when it comes to men who don’t have kids; but if under the age of 35, and you have no kids, you can most certainly choose to be a bit pickier in your choices. Partly because, ‘you have time’ and secondly because these are the years when most young adults are attempting to get their lives together, mentally and financially. So contrary to what some men (especially those with kids) want you to believe, there are plenty of 30-year-old, childless men.
