Dating wiht a kid
Guys this is hard if you aren’t a lover of children; I cannot stress this any harder; if kids annoy you, or if they get in the way for you, then stick to women who lack kids.If you do love kids, or are tolerant of kids in a friendly way, then you must realize that dating a woman with a child is like dating two people.
Many guys just don’t know how to deal with a child that isn’t theirs and it becomes immediately evident to the child, even when the mom is disillusioned into thinking that the guy is perfect.Peter Sheras, a clinical psychologist at the University of Virginia, and the author of , recommends that parents plan on introducing the kids "within a couple of months of declaring yourself in a serious relationship." When it comes to making the actual introductions, you'll want to plan an informal outing or activity.Ideally, it helps to create a situation where everyone can be themselves, relax, and have a good time.A brief activity, such as going out for pizza or playing a quick round of miniature golf, gives everyone a chance to meet, but doesn't create a situation where lengthy conversation is needed.Accepting parental dating relationships may be a slow process for your kids.Don’t go talking about the girl’s favorite band as if you listen to it, because she probably knows that you don’t and you will look like a fool trying to get in.
You do not what to appear as if you are talking the kid up in order to score panty points with his/her momma.
Most teens are cynical and standoffish to new boyfriends so you have to expect hostility initially.
Don’t go turning on the young man’s Madden game and professing your “skills” in hopes that the video game will bond you to him.
You have to cater to both on some level, especially if the child is a female herself.
Engage the child in conversation when he/she’s around but make it natural conversation, not forced conversation.
Ask your Teen: If you have a teenager it is very important that you get their approval after an introduction or two is made with your potential lover.
