The kids may feel loyal to their mother, or worse, they may think you're trying to replace the other parent.
By taking things slow and being sensitive to the situation, you can develop a supportive and meaningful relationship with a single dad.
Its pretty simple love is black and white either you do or you dont.
Theres no excuses in love, its an undying feeling that you cant live without this person you think about them all the time.
Creating a Strong Relationship Building a Relationship with His Kids Interacting with His Ex Community Q&A It's fairly common in the dating world to meet single parents.
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.Also, depending upon the situation with his ex, he may have concerns that she may not agree with his choices and try to make it more difficult for him to see his kids. I know that he wants to spend more time together and that the situation isn't ideal, but at what point does it become a deal breaker? If it's possible love them as much as you love him and it will work out fine. I would say that you need to let him know your feeling and how you would like to be involoved in his activities with his kids.have been with im for 8 months and he must be confused about you or you would be apart of that play time already so make it Loud & Clear what u want out of you relationship with him! i am dating a guy whom i fell so madly in love with but he was divorced twice and had three kids.Its a sensitive topic, and I do want to marry this man and be a part of their lives as a whole, so does that mean I need to suck it up?! I am dating a divorced guy with four kids who he has custody of. I know that I will be second to his children and I can't possibly expect him to put me above his kids. i haven't met his kids but there is one thing that i can't control; i am having difficulty in dealing with this situation although my boyfriend only sees the kids every summer.i don't want us to end up like that coz i love him so much. going back to your problem, i think you are in a better situation. Not knowing him or you, I'm only speaking from personal experience.i have told him that i'll be in need of counselling to help me adjust once we get married (by the way, we're planning to get married in few months). My boyfriend (father of 2) felt somewhat guilty about not being able to keep his family together.
My situation is a little different because I have kids with the guy who also has an ex wife and son. What stinks is that I can sit here and tell you to have trust etc. I'm hurt because I give him everything and I want him to be a part of my entire life, not just pieces. And yet, I regret loving him, loving the children, every day. I am dating a very recently divorced man with 3 kids who is 12 years older than me. He is so good to me, I couldn't ask for a better boyfriend when we're together. I know he wants a smooth transition for the kids, but I am left feeling lonely, sad and left out.
