Dating a divorced guy with children

So when your divorced partner introduces you to them, they will not welcome you in their circle.They will smile and say hello to you but that’s it.They will not friend you on Facebook, they won't follow you on Twitter or even bother to get to know you.Every time your man tries to invite them for a coffee, the will find every excuse in the book not to come and if they do come, you will feel their coldness towards you.His kids will see you as proof that their parents will never reconcile.His friends will find it hard to associate you as his new partner.When they are not around, he’s either busy with his work or something else takes precedence over you.Depending on the strength of your character, most women never survive the “kids always there” syndrome, especially if you have no children of your own.

Suddenly the only time you spend together is when the kids are around.There will be occasions where they have to attend together such as birthdays for the kids, communions (if they are catholic), children's events like soccer game, competitions, weddings and to some extent family holidays.She may not be sharing a bed with him, but she still shares his life which means no matter how much you want it to just be two of you, it will always be three of you, regardless of whether she is in good or bad terms with him.Worse off, if you don’t get along with the kids, you will feel neglected, unloved, you will begin to slowly resent him for always putting his children first.Even if you do get along with the kids, the kids will always circle your relationship.But as you go down the line, suddenly Tiffany needs a new pair of shoes, so he has to go shopping with her, Johnny needs a ride to soccer practice, Jane got sick so have to take her to hospital etc.You will eventually have to struggle to even have a phone conversation with him.To them, you are a spare wheel, a distraction, an amusement toy for their friend.The Other Woman – That is your name when you date a divorced man.They will always call you “that girl he’s dating.” Your friends will associate you with “that divorced man she’s dating.” You constantly have to prove that you’re not just another woman. Sadly most people will label an expiry date for your relationship and sad to say they’re usually right.Forget “I do” – If you are the kind of girl that someday wants to get married, then you won't achieve that by dating a divorced man.
