Watch where you draw the line

“I see a lot of people who say ‘I can’t date anyone who has younger kids.’ They say the kids must be out of the house. They must be launched. I find that sort of limiting,” Hoffman says. “I get it…as a parent…you dream of that day when they’re launched and off they go. And you don’t have to worry anymore about having food in the fridge for them and wondering what time they’re going to be home. I get the freedom that that empty nest brings. But at the same time, is that the line you really want to draw? If your perfect person has everything you want and had kids later and their kids are still at home, or because of COVID their older kids are moving home, is that really going to be the deal breaker?”
