Dating single dads with kids

We suggest keeping in mind these 5 points for single dads heading into the dating scene. If telling your kids the truth about what you’re doing would be too much for them to handle at this time, then this might not be the time to start dating.

Dishonesty is never the right way to handle difficult issues with your children. Kids are very nuanced when it comes to observing relationship cues. This list is a help and so is common sense, but nothing beats talking things over with a trusted friend.

We don’t know how your date’s going to go, but we do have a few ideas to make sure you don’t crash and burn on the dad end of the equation.

No matter how you slice it, dating as a single dad is tricky business and there’s no easy route.

When you’re a single dad, it’s even more critical to make sure the kids enjoy some predictability in their schedule. You wouldn’t let your teen’s date stay the night, so don’t add confusion to a moral compass that’s still being set. We weren’t created to experience life in isolation so take advantage of the human community.

Since I split up with my wife, I’ve gotta say life has been a pretty solitary existence.

I live by myself, I work from home – really, the only time I go out is to pick up or drop off the kids, and one night a week when I have to head off to university to teach.
