Dating a divorced older man with kids
Otherwise, you’re right: all the best communication skills and purest intentions in the world don’t change the fact that you have a once a week guy on your hands.3. You’re a couple looking for a solution and a good boyfriend wants to make his girlfriend happy.
I can’t tell you what will happen, but I can assure you that there are millions of single moms and dads navigating this space with worse relationship partners.
He’s a fantastic and committed single dad who has his 5-year-old son 50% of the time; he and his ex-divorced several years ago.
She has struggled with addiction, thus making co-parenting a bit of a struggle at times. He’s truly wonderful; he’s kind, thoughtful, treats me with so much respect.
I have learned so much about what it means to be in a giving relationship in these four months, and he has been such a remarkable teacher of that. I think it’s always instructive for women to hear from other women that, despite all the frustrations you’ve had with dating and relationships prior to today, you don’t believe that “men” are the problem, and that, in fact, in this one instance, your boyfriend’s ex-wife was the weak link.
But, I want more at this point, and I don’t know if it’s a simple case of needing to be more patient to let things grow organically…if I just need to see things as they are and say that my needs aren’t being met and re-evaluate. This is far more common than we see here – specifically because most of the questions I post are from women complaining about men.
However, I want a serious relationship that is continuously growing.When it comes to dating, we all know what a struggle it is to find that perfect partner. You have all the necessary equipments to take you through the dating stage.All the check boxes are ticked, except for one – he is a divorcee.I want a boyfriend that is able to invest in a serious relationship with me.I think he wants that too, but I don’t know if 4 months is too early to expect that of him because he needs to move slower than a childless man.
