So figuring out when and how to start dating after a divorce can be a real dilemma for a divorced dad.
Many dads take a long time to recover before they are ready to date again; and some are ready within a few weeks or months.
I respect that they are concerned about me and my situation but can't they just be happy that I'm happy right now? consider that and watch how close your guy with his children and watch the character of those children .your choice .. I also am in a relationship with a fella with 3 kids, I have 4 and can make it work, but he is having difficulty, he says they come first and me 2nd. Using this, I decided what to do about my relationship and have been very happy with my decision. I am dating a recently divorced man with 3 children. I have only been around them twice and both times things went well, but we've been dating now for 8 months and still I've only been around them twice. But, If he doesn't have that desire to include me in ALL of his life, have me go places with them (even once a month) then how do I know if this is actually going somwhere?By putting more pressure on him, I pushed him away.To avoid adding pressure, make sure that you know that you are both on the same path.I've been dating a man for close to 5 months and he is recently divorced and has 3 kids.I'm really very happy and it seems like everything is going in the right direction for us. Personally, I have found this website very helpful because it helped me easily get anonymous feedback from friends about my relationship. I'm head over heels, but recently I've wondered myself if I am getting what I need from this relationship.I am trying to be patient as he's asked me to do so.
