But there are some things that you just do not say to a single mom on a first date, assuming you’re angling for a second. “That’s great your mom lives in town so you can leave your kids with her on weekends.” 2. “I am really loving this time of my life since my kids went away to college.” 3. Most teens are cynical and standoffish to new boyfriends so you have to expect hostility initially.Don’t go turning on the young man’s Madden game and professing your “skills” in hopes that the video game will bond you to him.It’s very obvious when we do this and kids read that stuff immediately.Here’s what you do: treat the kid like another adult and engage in conversation and bonding the way you would if you were stuck in a house with random guy or girl.Plus, it tells her (and any other woman, for that matter) that she was your Plan B for the evening. But if you really want to see her, give her plenty of time to sort out her schedule. In fact, if you DON’T appear interested in her family she’ll think that you’re not into kids. When a guy laughs at my funny-kid story, or is sympathetic about my mom worries, I’m in. But if you tend to take turns picking up the bill, but she sometimes rearranges her life to get out of the house and pays for a babysitter so she can spend time with you, acknowledge that. Know that when she invites you over, it is more work for her than when you invite her over. Yes, moms are really efficient and they’re used to doing a lot of cooking and cleaning.
“When guys marry single moms and their daughters grow into teenagers, I don’t know how they can control themselves.” 11.
Guys this is hard if you aren’t a lover of children; I cannot stress this any harder; if kids annoy you, or if they get in the way for you, then stick to women who lack kids.
If you do love kids, or are tolerant of kids in a friendly way, then you must realize that dating a woman with a child is like dating two people.
If you have good rapport with your child, have regular talks with them and they respect you, then it is important that you get their approval.
Check his credentials: If you have a toddler or baby and the guy is okay with dating you, then this next step is important.
