I'd rather be single for the rest of my life than to get married and end up going through another divorce. My divorce ended 9 years ago and as I mentioned, I got married just over 2 years ago. Throughout that time I dated a bit and I learned a thing or two about the unique issues that one encounters dating as a single dad.
Now I have the privilege of sharing a bit of what I’ve learned on this blog. You might also know that my first marriage didn't quite work out as I'd hoped.
That relationship produced a daughter who was 3 at the time that the divorce took place.
I got remarried 2 1/2 years ago and we now have a son who just turned 11 months old this week.
I recently received an email from a female reader seeking my input on a situation that she's dealing with.
She's a single woman without kids who's dating a divorced dad with a daughter.
She has some real concerns about how the relationship is going and wanted to hear from my perspective the true dynamics of what she's experiencing.Let me first say that I'm not a relationship expert. I’m nothing more than a dad who has walked an interesting path on my way to raising two wonderful kids.You can read Today we have a blended family of four.Not long ago, I had a household of 2 - just my daughter and me.I was a single, self-employed, full-time dad with a growing, impressionable daughter.I desired to be in a relationship that could lead to marriage but I was in no rush to do so because I knew the devastation that can occur when marriages don't quite work out.
