Single dads with daughters and dating
Well, let me clarify: I have no shortage of “dates”. I have an outgoing personality and seem to be asked out a lot…I guess I must be in reasonable shape because NOBODY can guess I’ve even had four kids, or that I’m even 34 (I get asked out by guys in their early 20s- I feel like I should read them a story and tuck them into bed… we usually go on a few dates, everything is going wonderful… I’m not talking about church bells, but just to an actual relationship. I am sick of being treated like a piece of ass, and treated like I must be desperate because I have kids.I’ve been in a terrible relationship before and honestly now, I’d rather be alone than with the wrong guy.I believe I have a lot to offer – I am caring, kind, warm, loyal and intelligent. I am not looking for a father for the boys; they have one.I’d venture to guess that your sex-oriented guys feel the same way. You shouldn’t quit because single men your age want sex and more time.You should just find a guy who is looking for a Brady Bunch family, who sees sex as the icing on the cake instead of the cake itself.I am seriously at the point of giving up on the whole dating thing…
Middle-aged divorced men understand what it’s like to be you.Maybe your ex shares custody and gives you weekends off, but I think we can all agree that women with four kids have less available time than women without four kids.And if the greatest gift a woman can give a man is her time, who are men going to gravitate towards – the harried mom who has to manage four lunches, babysitters, soccer practice, and bedtime routines – or the one who is blissfully unencumbered by such essential responsibilities?Dear Christina, Before I give you the pep talk you need, let me first acknowledge the painful truths that you’ve eloquently outlined above. Having four kids under the age of 9 is a huge handicap.I’d try to spin it in a slightly more positive way, but I can’t.
You should just find a guy who is looking for a Brady Bunch family, who sees sex as the icing on the cake instead of the cake itself. Today, I’m giving you my new book, “Believe in Love – 7 Steps to Letting Go of Your Past, Embracing the Present, and Dating with Confidence.” and it’s going to forever change the way you view dating, men, and relationships. That said, you are right, there are a few men out there that want to blend a family.
