Dating someone with a kid
As the words tumbled from my mouth, all three gave me ‘the look’.I knew exactly what they were thinking, as I spoke about my newfound love interest, and him bussing the file that he had a kid.How long does a widow/widower typically wait to start dating again? I was lonely for several years before my husband died.I would have been dating again within a year if I had not been in a car accident that put me out of action for 9 months.Wasn’t I the same person who vowed to never date a man with a child? There are other men who are single, childless and worth getting to know. I was up for the challenge, and decided to give it shot.
You can’t really stop your heart from liking someone else or getting attracted to some other person other than your own lover, and if that does happen, it’s inevitable. That’s what really matters when you find yourself in crossways and have to decide between the older and trusted path and the new and riskier path. You may find yourself liking someone else when you least expect it.
It may be their personality or the electric chemistry that both of you share.
A bit of flirting can be harmless, but what if the infatuation grows over time and becomes an obsession?
One is ready to date again whenever solitude gives way to loneliness.
It is natural to want a partner, but the partner is not a substitute.“One should wait until THEY feel they are ready.
