These types typically don’t have a significant part of their personalities that is nurturing.
The most promising and successful scenario in dating someone with a child involves you knowing – with no doubts or hesitations – that you want kids.
As long as you start with this crucial building block – wholeheartedly wanting to be a parent – you can get to know and date that new person, and the relationship may actually work out or even morph into the kind of union you’ve always wanted.
Are you a flexible, easygoing personality, or do you veer toward a more “Type A” personality?
Think about dating someone with a child this way: You are walking into a pretty complex situation that is already created.
If you are on the fence about wanting kids, forcing yourself into a pre-established family adds so many pressures, and it’s not necessarily worth the hassle unless you live somewhere where there are truly few to no other dating options.
