When it comes to dating as a single parent, there is one single most important thing to consider, above everything else:
Would you allow your potential partner to date your child?
Or in other words, is your potential partner good enough for your kids?
Time and time again, I see women and men dating people who don’t exactly cut it.
The man whose girlfriend treats him like a bank account and handyman.
The woman whose boyfriend treats her like a “sidepiece” and inconvenience.
The scenarios are the same for those in LGBT relationships– situations in which one person is settling for less than what they deserve.
Time and time again, I see divorced parents in relationships that aren’t the dream relationship they left their ex’s for.
I see people settling. I see people dating fill-in’s and warm bodies to keep the loneliness at bay.
