How to Date a Man with Children

Learn how to date a man with children from relationship expert Jonathon Aslay in this Howcast video about men and love.


Okay. When it comes to dating men with children, there are a number of things to consider.

Personally, I have children, so I've been down this road. I can tell you, in the early stages of dating, I was kind of all over the map, when it came to even my custody with my kids. I was going through a transition in my life, and I didn't know how to handle this best, when to introduce my children to the girl I'm dating. Should I introduce them to the girl I'm dating? These are all questions I didn't even know anything about. So if someone is brand new to the dating world and they have children, kind of be prepared to recognize that they may not know what they're doing.

Another thing is, when it comes to children, our children come first, just as they would for you. My children were a priority for me, so a relationship sometimes was put on the back-burner, when it came to spending time with my children. So navigating and transitioning through those periods of when they have custody...

But also, dating guys with children can be great. My kids were fantastic! We spent time together, we spent quality time, family time, with the person I was in a relationship with, so dating men with children can be fantastic. Just remember that the children are going to be their priority for them, and you should have that in the back of your mind. If it's important that you spend all your time with your guy, recognize that he's going to be spending time with his children, too.
