Single dating man kids

Sure, we know you think we are great at it, but we need to hear it.

Plus, when you feed our egos, the odds are it will pay off for you in the near future.

Having recently read an article describing What A Single Mom Wants In A Boyfriend I began asking myself exactly what I was looking for in a woman with whom I choose to have a relationship. Recently, after a brutal 14-month custody battle, I was finally granted 50/50 custody of her and no longer limited to being an every-other-weekend dad.

When we as dads take our children out in public, it is not uncommon to be asked where their mom is, or hear comments about us pulling “mommy duty” for the day.

It’s almost as if people assume that if we have a penis, we are incapable of caring for a child for more than a couple hours without some kind of assistance or intervention from their mother.

But once I suddenly had her half the time, it became almost impossible for us to make plans together.

She had children too, so trying to balance both of our schedules and find evenings that we were both kid-free just put more and more stress on our relationship.

Most of that dating was fairly casual, but I have been in a couple relationships—the most recent and most serious of those relationships having lasted just under two years. Or at least I realize now looking back on it just how easy it was.

You can live your life, go out on dates, and pretty much do whatever you want within the confines of the law for 26 days out of the month.

Almost any potential mate can handle a child that is not their own coming to visit four days a month.

It isn’t that big of a disruption in day-to-day life.

When we did find time to see each other, we were both so exhausted from work and taking care of our children, that we barely had enough energy left to sit on the couch watching Netflix until we passed out.

Needless to say, the communication and intimacy in our relationship quickly began to deteriorate.

We already have to do that around our ex, in order to attempt to co-parent.
