you’re a 20- to 35-year-old woman without any children I caution you against dating a man with kids.
He canceled the day of because his youngest daughter had hit her head and he’d spent the previous night in the emergency room.
I totally understood why he had to cancel, but the situation also reminded me why he and I could never work and why I will never date a man with children again.
The Cop has two daughters and a demanding job, obviously.
His youngest daughter was extremely sickly or maybe just accident-prone.
It was difficult for us to make plans because we had different schedules, and, to make matters worse, his daughter would get sick (or whatever) when we had plans.
The girls’ mother also had a demanding job, so she never seemed available to deal with her own children.So this brings me to my first point: If you date a man with children, you can never expect to come first.I’m a rational person, so I realize that a man’s children should and will come first.But this creates a conflict because a woman wants to feel secure and wanted in a relationship, but if she demands greater importance than his children, then she comes off as an insensitive bitch.Another big issue in this type of relationship is baby mama drama.Most men try to avoid conflict with the women in their lives at all costs, so it’s a pretty safe bet that he will go along with whatever ridiculousness his children’s mother puts him through.
