Dating older men with children
I have witnessed this many times and men have openly shared with me that they would love to be married again one day and “make it right this time.” I have dated divorced men who have acknowledged that they spent a great deal of time building their businesses during their marriages and they wish they had been more romantic or listened more or had brought their wives flowers more often or had been more complimentary to their spouses. There are many divorced men out there who have taken the time to work on themselves and their mistakes after their marriage ended and have a new-found commitment to making things right the next time around.
Ladies, as much as we love men (and, I really do), we want to acknowledge that they can often mature, grow up and find their way in a relationship a bit more slowly than women do.
Although there are still stigmas surrounding dating divorced men, here are a few reasons you just might have a delightful experience: Men are, by nature, fixers and problem solvers.
I have many single girlfriends who share this choice and many who chose marriage, had children and got divorced.
I have found that dating divorced men with children to be an amazing experience for myself, as well as my friends and clients who are now single women with children of their own.
There is a good chance that your older man might have kids already, so don't be more needy than his 10-year-old.
The same goes for him -- if he is trying to keep you in some creepy child-like state, ditch him.
