Tip #1 – Assess Your Ability To Be A Good Partner For A Single Parent.

It’s one thing not having time to go out in public as a couple, but the fact that nobody in his life seems to know we’re a couple kind of puts it in a different light. I do really like him, we have a really great time together and he always seems so attentive whenever we can’t physically be together, but maybe I’m just seeing what I want to see? The first issue is a valid one and you have every right to consider whether you’re getting your emotional needs met right now.

The second one is just an ego/insecurity thing and should not derail an otherwise strong relationship.

You never know and you don’t want to go into the relationship assuming anything. Single parents have a great number of responsibilities that childless folks can’t even imagine. If you don’t have kids then you likely have know idea what it is like to change 6 or so wet diapers a day (per kid) plus a couple of poopy ones too.

Of course if you are dating someone with older children then this kind of thing may be ancient history in your partners mind, and the daily parenting duties may have eased up a bit.

Clearly if you stay single long enough then chances are good that you will come across a potential partner who is also a parent.

This being the case, it makes sense to familiarize yourself with the struggles single parents face so that you can be a empathetic and caring partner.Others want the people they date to be a part of their kid’s lives right away (IMHO a big mistake), but it just depends on how they feel about things. These are the kinds of things that you will surely discuss with somebody you see as a potential candidate for a long term relationship before things get too serious.Don’t assume she or he will do one thing over another.As I wrote in this blog post, his failure to incorporate you into his life has far more to do with everyone else (parents, kids, etc.) than it has to do with YOU. When people start dating and having romantic relationships in their late teens and early twenties, few are concerned with the possibility of dating a single parent.You’re not wrong if you yearn for more; nor are you wrong for feeling that he’s “worth the wait.” The question is whether there’s a light at the end of the tunnel – or whether you’re just the emotional booty call who serves her purpose in his life but never really has a full-on relationship on her own terms. You just want a real-life boyfriend, who calls you every night, who has his weekends open for you, who is making a long-term investment. If he steps up to the plate, you might have yourself a boyfriend. And if you suspect that it’s not growing, it’s time to walk away and find out how much he has to give to you. I will agree with you Evan on the “fully integrated” advice to a point. Being selfish would be to demand he meet your needs and manipulate and create drama until he complies.
