It takes a mature woman to understand the complexities of dating a man who has children because you may not always be able to do the things two mature adults would want to do together.
As you are not the primary role model in the children’s lives, it is your job to be kind and supportive of your boyfriend’s role as a father.Much like I don't screen people for specific ethnicities when considering a relationship, I also don't ask for a date of birth.Granted, there are certain age brackets above and below my own that would likely warrant the immediate no-go in my books, but I generally take the “organic” approach to dating. I’m talking about kids: The unforeseen element of Millennial dating.I scoured the Internet for advice about dating people with kids. I got the same advice from multiple people: "Be yourself." OK, what next? We were on and off, and it wasn't the healthiest relationship I've ever been in.The only books I could find were about step-parenting. Considering the divorce rate in this country, I thought finding the advice would be easy. *crickets* My relationship with this man continued for... But I did learn a LOT about the kiddos and how to deal with them.
