As a single mom whose ex is already coupled off and close to introducing his girlfriend to our child, I started to think about what it would be like if it were the other way around: me, dating a man with kids and meeting his ex. Would she feel the way I do about meeting my ex’s new lady? Nervous, concerned, and hopeful? Nervous we won’t like each other. Concerned about whether she’s a good person or not. Hopeful that we can all get along. I’m in my late 30s, so the chances of me meeting and dating a man with kids postdivorce are high. How would I handle the ex-wife or mother of my potential new guy’s kids?
With class and empathy.
