Dating a divorced dad

In other words, be friends instead of dating each other.

While it would have been better to have started the relationship from this angle, going the friend route now might work by giving everyone a little extra time to get used to the new dynamic.

Most kids with divorced parents secretly hope that mom and dad will get back together—even if the divorce happened long, long ago.

To have you suddenly dating her father might have made her feel that you were just using her to get to her dad.

It’s also possible that the girl is worried about betraying her mother.

I completely disagree with this, because the girl has not liked any of the past girlfriends either. He thinks she’ll come around now that school is over but I don’t think that’s ever going to happen. We come with plenty of baggage and there are always unforeseen complications.

Plus, children tend to be very protective of their dads (interestingly, they’re often more protective of dads than moms—perhaps because they see that moms already enjoy much more social support than dads).

Another captured my heart (and still holds it, most tenderly).

And one remains a trusted friend to this day (and I'm glad).

While you may have help that frees you up for the occasional vacation, dating with kids at different ages and stages can pose logistical and financial challenges, much like age-stage differences in the couple itself. Do listen if he says he isn't interested in helping to parent your kids, he's tired of you only being available for a weekend relationship, or he can't afford to pick up the financial slack for a single mother with children. So do Johnnie and Janie, Fido and Tabby, not to mention the hamsters, Mutt and Jeff.

And that's despite the fact that you're working two jobs already, and he may be working two jobs of his own. The neighbors like him, too, and he and his ex seem very friendly.

Part of problem may be that the girl feels betrayed by you.
