Pros and cons of dating a single mom
You will always know when you are going to see him, which gives you the opportunity to plan your own time accordingly. Oh, and you will never be able to have sex on every surface in the house with kids around. He is protective of his family and understands the importance of being a good role model for his children. His kids might treat you as a trespasser at first, so you will have to deal with it.
If you are thinking about having kids with him one day, you can make sure in advance that he will be a great father. Besides, if you decide to have a child with him, this child won't be his first.
But then he tells you he has kids – and not just has kids living somewhere with their mother. He is serious about relationships and doesn't play games.
Well, it is not exactly a good thing if you are looking for something casual, but it's great if you want a long-term committed relationship.
Unless the divorced dad is a widow, all children come with a mom.
Hopefully his ex is a reasonable, nice human being, they have a good (but not too good) relationship and co-parent well.
And you know he’s serious about you; he doesn’t just introduce anyone to his kids.
Get ready to have dates canceled because of children-related emergencies. This is true for most single dads, particularly if they are raising daughters. And by extension she will be present in his and yours, too. Single dads usually have a tight schedule because they need to allocate time between work, kids and personal life. Your boyfriend's tight schedule means that you won't be able to be spontaneous.
