Dating a single mom with three kids
But then my brain started playing around with the idea and I imagined my two kids dressed up in monster costumes standing in a dark hallway deliberately trying to cock block me. Though I was relatively certain what he meant by the scared children comment, I wanted to confirm that he was making a mass generalization before I retaliated. They are fun and weird and sometimes they lose their teeth and get money for it. Why should the fact that I have children make me any less attractive? I asked him what he meant and he said that when a man finds out that a woman has children, he becomes afraid. They love chocolate and ice cream and they say weird, funny stuff. I think that is discrimination and it’s just plain ridiculous.
To remedy my fears, I turned to seasoned dating coaches, Julianne Cantarella, MSW, and Elisabeth Lamotte, a licensed psychotherapist and relationship expert, to figure out the biggest dating mistakes single moms make (and the smart moves that should replace them). "It's not only the woman who can be hurt if the relationship ends, but the children as well." A savvy single mom should wait as long as possible before introducing her kids to the potential boyfriend and never make the intro around the holidays, the experts advise."Women should gain a sense of her boyfriend's interaction based on how he treats her and possibly his own children if he has them," says Cantarella, who suggests erring on the side of caution.My friend dated a single mom and she was always breaking plans because of childcare issues, or suggesting he just come over and watch a movie. Maybe she’s like my friend and had a baby after just dating someone. I dated a single mom who had a lot of issues with her ex and I found that I got sucked into a lot of drama.I’m young and I want to have fun, out in the world, not be tied down to someone’s living room while her kid sleeps in the bedroom. I admire my friend for being a stand-up guy and taking care of his son, so my opinion of a woman doing the same … Also, her ex had issues with me being around his daughter because he was threatened by the relationship that was forming.Traditionally men view the introduction of children to be a big step.When you have talked about exclusivity and are both sure you share the same vision for the future of your relationship, then you can introduce the kids.

She's smart, strong, and beautiful, but also a bit of a mystery. And how do you let her know that you're not just playing games—without getting overly involved too soon?
