Adult dating meeting children
However, just because our kids don’t really have a say in who we eventually marry doesn’t mean that they can’t be a part of the dating process.Unfortunately, we are often so eager for our children to like the person we are dating that we push this person on them.A common underlying thought process during this time is what happens if my children grow fond of this person and we end up breaking up?Will I be putting them through another “divorce” of sorts and damage them further? Integration Personally, I come from the position that our children need to be, at least on some level, a part of the dating process we are entering into.While other single parents are probably the most likely to be interested in dating someone with children, there are lots of people who have no children of their own who would be delighted with a ready-made family.
“Children of all ages feel betrayed and abandoned when their parents divorce because their cozy nest is disrupted,” Lieberman says.
Some of you might be thinking, "I'd love to start dating, but who would want to date someone with four children, a dog, and two parakeets? Don't automatically assume just because you have children, you're less desirable.
