Dating divorced men issues
An emergency will be evaluated on a case by case basis, and I will always attempt to let you know the real story.
But in a primary relationship I also want to play with my partner.
Married couples face the same challenge, and the balance between these two desires of mine is more about respect and courtesy than it is about being divorced or not.
As a divorced dad I am just now entering in a new dating relationship with a woman who does not have kids. We have already had moments of “oh shit, your kids are there, I’m sorry …” and “don’t worry about the kids, they are in their rooms studying.” If I try to imagine her point of view I’d be projecting, so I’ll stick with mine.
As a divorced dad I do understand that my kids are a priority. But kids can be used as an unhealthy defense mechanism as well.
And as I have stated that I didn’t think I’d be interested in dating a woman who was not a mom, I’ve had to revise that statement, based on new information.
