Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
Now I would really like to see how things go but I am a touch apprehensive about the situation but probably more so at people saying I must be crazy although I feel really excited at the thought of dating this girl and seeing where it leads.
So would you guys still date someone who you really liked if they had a child?
I would definitely not let a woman that you really really like slip through your hands because she has a child. You will end up payig for someone else's child & raising someone else's child ? You will always have hostility from the father, possibly serious.4.
Just take it slow before you play any type of father figure role in the childs life though. You will get less attention from her than you would from a woman with no kids.
You might end up with a lovely little family, who knows? If you do not mind being a step daddy to this kid and you really like his mom, them give it a try you have nothing to lose and everything to gain However remember when dating someone with kids, if it doesn't work out you lose the kids and they lose you too and kids tend to fall hard so if there's any doubt in your mind you might want to think long and hard before rushing in Well young man , you are young and its a lot for you to take in at a early age, I don't know if you dated a lot before but she is older with a kid, you are at different stages in life, you are just beginning adult hood and she has started and has a child.
Now she did say to you she isn't looking for someone to look after her son or pay for him and right now you are just starting to see her.
I would take it slowly, also realize when dating a single mom that her time is limited, and If can handle that its a good start, you cannot be too demanding of her time, and then if the relationship seems like its going some where you will have to meet her son but only if 1) she is comfortable 2) you like children and 3) you know the relationship is going to the next level.
The whole step daddy thing comes into effect if you are planning to live with her or marry her but for dating , don't need to worry about it he has a father .
Just take your time with this, trust your instincts young grasshopper( you are too young to remember that show) .
Any sane parent would take it slowly before introducing you to their child anyway.
It seems his father is involved and that's a good thing.
