As I have gotten older, I have loved dating divorced men with kids because it has taken the pressure off of me to have children with them.
I have also learned that men with kids love much more deeply. For all you single Mom readers, I think dating divorced men with children is a huge plus.
If you’ve never had kids, you still think the world revolves around you.
Being a parent teaches you that lots of crappy little stuff happens but as long as everyone gets home in one piece, it’s a good day. Maybe we failed miserably but we took the walk down the aisle, threw the wedding bouquet and put ourselves in debt to have a kick ass party.
I have many single girlfriends who share this choice and many who chose marriage, had children and got divorced.
I have found that men who have been married are a bit more structured and familiar with the little things.I believe that marriage teaches men responsibility, structure, how to co-define reality, what women want and how to put someone else before themselves.I have giggled to myself and so very much appreciated the little things that divorced men I have dated have done for me.I have completely fallen for a guy or two simply by watching him with his kids and the undying love and support he has provided them. Men with kids will understand your schedule, lifestyle, priorities and responsibilities—because they will have a similar life experience.So, whether you are flying solo like me and acquire a beautiful built-in family or you are a single Mom yourself and create your very own Brady Bunch, you are gaining a experience by dating a divorced man who brings a lot to your table. A full Spin class is a bummer but not a life changer; certainly not the same level of upset as discovering your child’s racked up a cellphone bill of over 8 in one month. Being a parent, you’re used to the quick change of plans. Someone vomits in their backpack on the way to school and suddenly you are working from home that day. Yes, we’ve been married and our marriages failed but at least we had the courage to say I Do. Women so young and naive that they can’t discern their emotional disabilities.
