Dating man with kid
I did my research and have come up with the good, the bad and the ugly of what it is really like to date a man with kids.
All of us fall in love differently, so I am bringing this to you in the spirit of Gary Chapman’s work on the “Five Love Languages.”In his work, he talks about the five various ways each of us gives and receives love: Words of Affirmation (compliments), Acts of Service (doing for you), Quality Time, Receiving Gifts and Physical Touch.
It is in this way I want to break down what it would be like to patter down the path of romance with an older gentleman.
Helping to comprise this list of experience are women I surveyed who have dated men with little ones.
Usually, her limit tips at the 10-year mark, but sometimes, she will make a concession for 15 or 20.
If his hair is aptly salt and peppered, she will even dip down to a solid five years older.
On the other hand, as we have grown a little wiser, the idea of having a seasoned love interest has become more appealing.
Older men tend to be more skilled in many aspects that appeal to women.
I could never understand what a recent college grad would have in common with someone I considered to be a parental figure.Would we happily play out our endeavors with fun trips to the park, exciting vacations to kid-friendly corners of the world and enjoy giggle-filled pizza nights?Or, would I be dealing with an avalanche of unchartered territory and drama?The older man is an interesting option for a girl looking to broaden her dating experience.But, here’s the thing: When it comes to dealing with the proverbial “older man,” there is a bevy of baggage that comes along with it. As one who is still not sure I ever want to delve into the abyss of parenthood, I am always a little leery about this particular type of baggage.
