Patience dating single dad
Two, you should resist the urge to bring up a fight when they cancels a date because their youngster has a cold or a strange rash or needs help with homework.
There may be a long phase of “testing the waters” before you can be considered the significant other, and even then, it’s still a long way to the altar.
On the other hand, watch out for the more insidiously possessive exes who think you’re a threat to their child’s wellbeing.
Maybe someday they’ll warm up to your presence in their kid’s life.
This is not to say that when you possess one bad trait, you’re out the door.
Just be aware that when you’re dating the parent, you’re also somewhat wooing the kid if you want your relationship to be more serious. In many rom-coms, the ex of a single parent is usually either virtually nonexistent or completely nuts.
