Separated dad dating

I am no relationship expert (far from it, in fact).

I have tried my hand at match making a time or 2 with friends, and discovered that I’m not great at that either.

For her, it meant that I (at least at some point) did not have commitment issues.

Instead of taking a pass, my partner rolled up her sleeves and engaged fully from the very beginning. There is obviously a very fine line between being involved and causing drama that is unique to each post-divorce situation when there is a child in the mix. Is the ex feeling like their toes are getting stepped on? Like a seasoned pro, my partner was able to identify all of the potential landmines and navigate graciously to avoid them.

She has struck an amazing balance of supportiveness and involvement while observing and respecting all applicable boundaries.

This section of the chart includes finding out if the person still lives with their parents, the divorce question, and other topics that can potentially be uncomfortable to talk about.

As a youth, I was taught that one in every 2 marriages would end in divorce.

While that 50 percent statistic may no longer be true as of 2014 (and may have actually been a myth back then as well), modern relationships seem to be more complicated than ever.

Despite best intentions, people change, as do the circumstances that they find themselves in.

My partner passed this phase of vetting with such flying colors that I didn’t even have to invite her to meet my daughter… I was ecstatic about the fact that my partner was not only ‘okay’ with the idea that I had a child with someone else, but was also eager to learn absolutely everything about my daughter.

I never insinuated to my partner that she would need to take on any sort of step-motherly role in my child’s life.

But I would like to suggest that if my story is any indication, there is a person out there who is the right fit for you and your children from a former marriage.
