Dating a single father advice Women seeking dick in woodstock il
I really enjoy our time together and appreciate how important it is for you to be a great father.
However, I feel like I’m always the one taking the initiative to see you.
But, from my vantage point, if your guy is divorced for six years and has a 50/50 custody situation with a 7-year-old girl, he and his ex should have a pretty good rhythm that leaves him a reasonable amount of free time on either weekdays, weekends or every other week.
So it’s not that I don’t believe him — or any man — who has important parental obligations that come first, but rather, I believe my own rule about guys: “men do what they want.”If he wants to call, he’ll call. If he wants to make plans with you, he’ll make plans with you. And if he doesn’t — if you’re the easygoing, patient, “I totally-understand-you’re-a-single-dad” woman who is not getting her relationship needs met, you need to tell him just that.“Hey, Dan, it’s been fun getting to know you these past few months.
He looks forward to us spending time together and we get along great. Is this what it’s like dating a single dad, or is it just THIS single dad? Your question isn’t specific to divorced dads but it is endemic to divorced dads. Because single dads have a very valid built-in excuse for why their limited attention is all they can give.
Something I’ve learned is that the guy I’m dating really prefers to be the one driving the relationship – if he is not making something happen, he either doesn’t want it to happen or he has a very good reason for it.
That said, there have been times when I have definitely had to be understanding where my guy’s kids are concerned.
Chances are, he’ll hear you, acknowledge you, and maybe even try to accommodate you, but I wouldn’t expect much to change. Personally, I think every woman is worthy of a man who makes an active effort to see her and I would hold out for no less.
I am especially qualified to comment on this post because I have been dating a divorced guy for the last 6 weeks, and things are going very well.
But at the same time, on other levels dating as a father isn’t any different than dating without children.
