Dating an older man with a child
Don't compromise any rules that he and the mother established just to get his children's approval, but offer them sound advice and compassion.
His countless nights staying up to cater to his children's every need has likely turned him into a more compassionate human being.
The dating scene is full of potential suitors but you think the nice guy who has children could pose problems for you. As opposed to dating a guy without children, you'll have the opportunity to see firsthand what type of father he is.
You may feel his obligation to his kids will cause friction as your relationship begins to grow and you're worried he won't have quality time to spend with you. Ultimately, this information will tell you if he'll make an ideal father for any children you have together one day.
This is going to be different from any other relationship you’ve had in the past. Keep in mind that this guy can’t be carefree – he has to provide for his children and be available whenever they need him.
However, you can rest assured that a man who has taken the responsibility of caring for his child/children has good qualities like commitment, responsibility, and love for his kids.
