Tips on dating a guy with a child
Being an effective communicator will give you advantages in more ways than you can imagine.
Conversely, being poor at communicating will negatively impact your life.
I know you’re disappointed, but it comes with the package. You hope to form a bond because you care for this man. His life is no longer centered on selfish acts but now focused on his little one. I can’t stress enough how important it is to have a life outside of your partner. When he’s spending alone time with his child, you should be out with friends or enjoying some me time.
If you had things your way most of your life, it’s time to change. When you date someone with a child, you’re agreeing to accept all that comes with it. His child extends him, so it’s a valuable relationship you’re entering. That way you’re not sitting around…feeling left out or neglected.
Non-verbal communication is key to being effective as well.
It’s the ability to have your body language say the right thing so the person you’re speaking to knows your listening.
He has a nice job, his own place, a car in his driveway and surprise…he has a kid.
Dating is already complicated and when you add a kid to the mix, it can be a recipe for drama.
As soon as you guys are all dressed up and ready to go…he gets a call.
Anything can come up and it’s important for you to realize that you’re not the only person in his life. He’s smart to take things slow with introductions because a child shouldn’t be involved in the dating process. It’s a good move to make sure things are going well before bringing someone into a child’s life.
You don’t want a child to become attached, and that person doesn’t stick around for the long haul. I know it’s a hard pill to swallow, but it’s something you have to accept.
You’re back on the dating scene and met this wonderful guy.
You get the impression you met someone who’s serious and hoping to settling down someday. He’s given you hope and opened a door you once closed.
Here are a few tips about dating a guy with a child…As it should be! He has a responsibility and an obligation to uphold.
