Dating a divorced woman without kids
Your man, your divorced dad, is lucky to have someone so understanding.
And while I only have limited experience with being on the dad’s side of the experience, I do have a little knowledge of what you speak.
There are plenty of single parents who use their kids to get out of almost every obligation. exercise, dating, taking responsibility for their own actions.
However, with a date who is not a single mom, the same rule applies.
Everyone’s agenda and desires take a backseat to the first aid and trauma response. But if you’re avoiding the confrontation because “his kids need him all the time.” That might be the issue right there. When used in a relationship the “excuse” is often used to recover from a miss of some sort. The kids got home and all hell broke loose.” That might be okay if your call was just a “nighty night” check-in, but if you were scheduled to talk about living arrangements, that might be an example of using the kids as an excuse for not taking responsibility. As I move into a relationship with another woman I know that too will become a priority.
(“Your daughter has fallen on the playground and needs to see a doctor.”) And beware that many requests can be set up like a crisis, (“Dad, I need my science binder by 3rd period tomorrow, I left it at your house.”) when they are actually poorly formed requests. Whatever the situation, the Mom is incommunicado, a problem that might need to be addressed at a different time, and a solution needs to be provided. I’ve never really gotten past the dating phase, so I personally haven’t had to cross this bridge.
