Dating a guy with 2 kids
Also, the father will always be connected to the mother.And she has the perfect excuse to intrude on his life whenever she wants to, like calling at all hours of the night.I dated The Cop off and on for about six years and I have to admit that love kept me from realizing just how big a problem his children were in our relationship.Recently, he and I made plans to have a friendly, totally platonic drink to celebrate my promotion.Now the breakup is even more difficult because there's a third party involved.You have no rights to visitation and it's unfair to put a child through more separation anxiety.Your new guy may be constantly complaining to you about his ex and before you know it, you are both caught up in the drama of continually talking about her latest antics.This is not a topic that you want to be the thing that binds you.
How well has your guy worked through the angst of his marriage ending? Some will try to alienate their children from their father as well as his new partner.If he has a friendly relationship with his ex, how friendly is it? The ex dropped by, came into the home and maybe even had a key!Some men feel pulled between their ex and their new partner. There were texts, emails and phone calls on a constant basis.It was difficult for us to make plans because we had different schedules, and, to make matters worse, his daughter would get sick (or whatever) when we had plans.The girls' mother also had a demanding job, so she never seemed available to deal with her own children.
