Is it worth dating someone with a kid, more from thought catalog
For me, however, progress has come only with a practice of restraint: I had wanted a partner, but one with kids?

A post divorce family is in emotional turmoil and the children are completely thrown by it all. I loved reading this. As someone with a kid I am okay dating someone else with a kid. As a mature woman you are not held back, you do not burden your partner, with inexperience and uncertainty!
You'll also learn that people with kids tend to hang out with other people that have kids, so the people you spend time with will change over time.
He also has to provide her with a monthly check since they share joint custody of the children.
Having his daughter changed him; it made him stable, it made him more responsible, and it made him aware of the future a lot more than he did before having her. If he makes you happy and you can accept his child then great, be with him!
It does go a little deeper though. Observe your potential new partner with his child and look at your own reactions to the way he parents, advises Sabbagh.
To be clear, I wasn't against dating someone with children because I don't like children. The mother pays more attention to her children then her man usually. Im so stuck on what to do, because i know i will always be second.
In many states the stepparents often have to support the kids and there are cases where the new spouse had to pay child support and alimony to the ex because the parent lost their job. Its already to risky getting involved with a woman these days and one with kids is even worse.
I understand why single parents are not top choice, but what about the fact that good single parents are devoted, responsible, attentive, caring and committed? I just started seeing this guy who has a 2 year old son, I was very very hurt at the start, all i could think of was the mother of his son, I adore him, and his son, but the mother just makes me feel so small lol.
