Ladies shouldn’t force it and guys shouldn’t run from it.If you’re dating a woman with a child, be aware that at some point in time, the day is going to come that you’ll be introduced.She may very well miss a call or three because she’s helping her kids with their homework, or getting them ready for bed. If the woman you’re dating is an active parent (which you should hope that she is), this is just something that comes with the territory. Meeting Day This really isn’t as much of an issue as the factors I’ve named above; however, it sometimes can become a touchy subject.There are the guys who would be fine with not meeting her child until she’s meeting him at the altar, and then on the opposite end of the spectrum, there are those men who want to set up play dates after the first date/encounter.She may not be able to sit and have long, endless conversations with you while her child is awake, as her child should/will always come first.Guys also sometimes tend to get annoyed hearing a child constantly talking or asking questions in the background.
At the end of the day, expectations of the situation should be discussed to ensure that you both are on the same page.
Whether it be a night out with her friends, or a surprise trip planned by her significant other, one of the major downsides of dating a single mom is that it definitely limits the opportunities for spontaneity in many aspects of life.
So unless she has babysitter options at her beck and call, one thing a guy has to realize, is that she may not always be able to drop everything and meet up for a drink after work or grab a bite to eat at the spur of the moment.
The other perk being that you can almost guarantee that a house with kids in it, is guaranteed to have snacks on demand at all times.
And depending on how you look at it, there may also be some “downsides” when it comes to dating a mom, let alone a single mom.
