Maybe in more ways than one, but he definitely has real-world experience and the benefit of the 20/20 hindsight vision you won't have for years.Thank you for all of your clear and concise thoughts over the last few years. I was in a relationship with a man who had a 10-year-old son. I was 29 years old, and the majority of my friends in Chicago were childless or childfree, whichever term you prefer. I knew that by moving back here, I was inviting many children into my day-to-day life -- and probably my love life, too. Despite all of my fears, I reconnected with this man from my youth.It turns out there is very little literature on how to date someone who has children. After running into him over a period of months, we began dating.Aside from the whole divorce thing, he's likely to have his life together (and if he doesn't, run).
Dear Dating Coach: I have been dating a 60 man for one and a half years. We are discussing marriage, but we have two problems: (1) his son (mid thirties) disapproves of me.
I have definitely taken things to heart: look for boyfriend behavior; there is a natural timeline where commitment should come by month three, “I love you” around 6 months, living together at 18, engaged at 2-3 years; men do what they want, and so many other pearls.
I have been dating a wonderful man for about four months now.
This means that your boyfriend needs to work out his relationship with his son.
You can support your boyfriend by encouraging him to spend time with his son and letting his son express the hurt feelings he has over the loss of his parents' relationship.
