Dating Someone With Children

Sep 17, 2008
When you meet someone that you really like you may find that you want to spend all of your time with them, get to know them better, and immerse yourself into who they are and what they like to do.

You may have great visions of who you could be with this person and who they could be to you, and then this may all change when you learn that they have kids. Dating someone who has kids can be a very positive thing, but it can also change the course of your relationship that you had envisioned.

When you date someone with children you will need to take things a bit slower. Not only do you want to get too attached to them, you have to realize that they have other responsibilities that have to be a priority over you and your budding relationship. This can be difficult because we like to be fawned over in a new relationship and we generally just like to feel like we are the most important thing in a person's life when we begin dating them.

Dating someone with children can be a different experience, but it can also be a great thing. The reason for this is that you may find that you grow as a person and see another side of a person that you already like and this may broaden your horizons and just allow you to grow in a new direction as a person.

You may find that you have a lot more tolerance for children and you may also find that you are willing to sacrifice your needs much more easily than ever before for someone that you love, this may be something that you had a hard time doing in the past but this will force you to grow a bit.

When you are dating someone with kids you need to allow them to move at their own pace. You may want to meet their kids and immerse yourself into their life, but the person that you are dating may need to go into it all a bit slower. You have to remember that children are very impressionable and no one wants to hurt their kids by allowing for them to get too attached to someone who may or may not stick around. Just be patient when you are dating someone with children.

It will be a feeling out period in the beginning, but once you start moving in the right direction you will find that it can actually be an enjoyable experience to date someone with children. You may enjoy getting to know a couple of little people and being a positive influence in their life.
