We are all free to make up whatever dating preferences we want.
They are called personal preferences for a reason and we don’t need the approval of anyone else when it comes to what we like.
But when deciding to date a woman with a child, you should be clear about your expectations for the relationship upfront with yourself and her.
But while the relationship with the father of the woman’s child should not dictate your relationship, their relationship –- whether good or bad –- will play a role in your lives.It’s important to know what you are getting yourself into.This is not a video game that you can turn off when you decide you do not like how the game is playing out.That is a personal decision you should figure out long before you involve a woman and her child in your life.Before your relationship gets serious, you should know what role, if any, the baby’s father has in the child’s life, and what type of relationship the two parents have with one another.
Contrary to popular belief — and Lifetime movies — not every woman with a child is looking for a second parent if the biological parent is actively involved in the child’s life and doing a good, low-drama job of co-parenting.
Dating a woman who has children can be much more challenging than dating a woman without children.
When dating a woman with kids, you have to understand that you will not be the primary focus of her life.
While the age of the child plays a factor, if you’re not looking for anything serious, you shouldn’t play the “I’ll figure it out” game with a ready-made family.
Further, if you’re not a kid person or don’t want kids, you should not date a woman with kids to see if you’ll change your mind.
That doesn't mean you can't have a rewarding relationship with a woman and her kids.
