I’ve created this article so you can walk into this situation with your eyes WIDE open. There are many pros and cons, but you know who you are better than anyone else does, so only you will know whether dating a man with kids is right for you. You’ll likely have to deal with the kids’ mom your entire relationship.

Instead of seeing being a single mom as a burden that is keeping you single, lonely, and away from your man. The better mother you are the stronger you are. And the better you are able to date a man and take care of your children, without compromising either relationship.

The kids have already witnessed the breakdown of their parents’ relationship—you don’t want to put them through that for a second time. It’s easy for kids to become attached to people, so only walk into their lives if you’re planning on sticking around for the long haul. I’ve written on whether you need the Kink D baby’s father approval before— and for the record, no you do not.

He may be paying child support and alimony to his ex. He may still be in debt from the lawyer he hired 3 years ago, who only managed to “win” him 120 nights a year with his children.
