A lot of single parents are afraid of going back to dating again for many reasons.Kids MIGHT trump our plans, but I am always willing to talk about it.And I am perfectly capable to make decisions based on a request and a crisis at the moment.
From that point on, you should treat it like an unexpected emergency.Your willingness to let these types of requests become new plans can tell a lot about healthy boundaries and good parenting skills. Frustrated perhaps, but not hurt.“Dad, I need someone to pick me up after the cross-country meet and I can’t get Mom to pick up.” Things happen. And between strained ex-parents, there can be some manipulation and control going on. “Okay, count on me to be there if we can’t get your Mom to respond. But OF COURSE, go to your cross-country race, we will figure it out.”Kids can be an excuse to get out of anything. If your divorced dad is always breaking plans because their kid is sick, getting an award, has a recital… But I do know, that I push back on my kids all the time.The text could be a request from one of the kids or the ex. ” And depending on the situation, you can choose to ignore (The discussion that evening, “You needed to ask me the night before, we’ve already got plans.”) or respond. Well, you might want to see why you’re no longer a priority. Make sure the two of you have a chance to establish enough rapport that you can ask, “Dude, if you don’t want to go to this event with me, just say it.” Kids can be the easy way out. They ask they demand, the whine, they want all kinds of things. And I know that if I have an opportunity to PLAY with my kids, at this point in my life, I’m going to choose that, whenever possible.And as I have stated that I didn’t think I’d be interested in dating a woman who was not a mom, I’ve had to revise that statement, based on new information.My fear about dating a woman without kids is more about boundaries and time management. It’s not about her wanting more of my attention or not.
