Discretion is the name of the game in the place they call home. Good parents make good partners, because by definition they are caring, thoughtful and not entirely selfish people, so there’s that.But as a friend of mine who has started dating a man with kids recently said, if you do it right you end up getting to know some great young people. I love talking to his kids and we have a great laugh.
It’s no big deal, but failure to tread softly can kill off a potentially brilliant romance. This is a concept that is sometimes hard for people who aren’t parents to understand.
Rule No.2 Meet the children when they’re ready, and not before. They want the world they inhabit to be safe and recognisable.
If their dad is dating it is because he has separated from their mother or he is widowed.
I wasn't allowed to date until I was 18 because I had very strict parents.
My 12 year old daughter has asked me when she can start dating.
