Tips To Dating When You Have Children

Dec 11, 2007
Surviving a divorce and coming out of one brave enough to jump back into the dating game can be a feat all on its own. Divorce can sometimes tend to make a person a little gun shy so to speak. However, when you do get up the nerve and decide it is time to give another relationship a try, it is often easier said than done if you have children.

For the majority of people, there is nothing in their life that is more important than their children. At least that is the way most of us think it should be. Making sure our children are loved, well cared for, and happy is on the top of the list. Introducing someone new that you are dating can be really tricky if your children are not happy about the new you.

It is not advisable to introduce your children to everyone that you date. We all know that you may have to date a lot of people before you find even one that a good relationship might be possible with. If your children have already endured a divorce between you and their other parent, the last thing they need is for you to parade an endless stream of strangers in front of them.

If you have been dating a particular person for a while, at least a couple of months, and you need to see how your children react to the person, it might be best to introduce them as just a friend at the first meeting.

The reason for this is because some children will automatically dislike the person if they think that you are showing them a potential future parent. Your children do not have to be that old to know how to manipulate a situation.

If you really like this new person in your life and your children do not, what a mess that can be. You can not divorce your children, but you probably do not want to remain single all your life either.

If you choose to pursue the relationship anyway, you might need to be prepared for family council meetings.. It may be that you can resolve the problems between your children and your new love. If your children are being completely unreasonable, as children sometimes are, then you may choose to move forward with the relationship cautiously.

Seeking professional advice can be very helpful when dealing with problems between you and your children. You have to do what is right for them and yourself and sometimes it is not easy to know what that is.
