A certain amount of the single dad’s time will be spent on parental duties such as preparing meals, picking kids up from school or attending their soccer games and dance recitals.This not only allows you to take some of that time for yourself, it allows the kids more alone time with their dad, which is healthy for them.
With the single dad, you get to have children in your life and even get a taste of parenting without the complete commitment of carrying, birthing and raising a child.In our adult lives filled with working and taking care of things, we often forget what it feels like to just have fun, the way a kid knows how to naturally.Dating a man with children gives you an excuse to relive the joy of going to an amusement park, zoo or beach, as well as enjoying fun activities such as going swimming, seeing animated movies or feeding the ducks at the park.You now have to schedule sex around a third-party: the tyke. He slow-walked the intro since it reminded him his wife was never coming back and he was alone. And whether she calls you her BF or the plumber, just roll with it. And if he really hates you, but she doesn’t dump you, be flattered: She wants to keep you around. Ask only that the menagerie be respectful, with no name-calling, biting, or mud-slinging catapults.So, when she says her ex has him for the night, consider it excellent news. The timeline on real-life offspring will likely be age-dependent: Babies have no idea you exist. Show kindness and a semblance of liking kids—but don’t go overboard or kiss her munchkin’s ass. Even with modern fertility science, all tadpoles come with some sort of father.
