Divorced dad kids and dating
Being hurt before left the divorced dads I've dated skittish; they were apprehensive about getting hurt again and wary of committing.One dad seemed to want preemptive reassurance, saying to me in our first phone conversation, "I need someone who can talk about emotions. " They've all displayed confusing hot and cold behavior, and a few flat-out said, sometimes even years after getting divorced, that they weren't ready to be in a relationship yet.
By 40, what was once few and far between is now your main dating demographic."While some women may consider it a liability, being a divorced dad is a big plus for me.All things being equal, I prefer a divorced dad to someone who's never been married any day.They know how to buy a car, stock a fridge, and what it's like to be an adult.And dating one can feel like I get to play grown-up in their presence, too, like maybe their adultness will rub off on me.
