Dating a guy with 2 kids
I still hung out and had fun with my childless friends, but not as often.When they would text me for an impromptu trip to the bar, I might have to decline because I had the kid with me, that sort of thing.The nice thing about being a step parent is, if there is visitation with the non-custodial parent, you get regularly scheduled breaks from the kids where you can go and adult to your hearts content. I'm almost 30, turn it next month, and girl I've been talking with has 2 kids from a previous marriage.I don't really like kids, it's more babies I can't stand so it doesn't bother me really.
Especially when you aren't even ready for a kid yourself...?
The long and short of it all, it's not easy but can be very rewarding if it is meant to work.
I used to think it was a no go, then met my ex and decided that he was worth giving a chance. IDK if his daughter had anything to do with his decision to end it, but I think that her mother had a lot to do with his intense commitment phobia and relationship issues in general.
Provided that my ex is mentally stable, I would still allow my kids to have a relationship with them. She brought with her 3 of the most beautiful little girls that I had the privilege of being a step-dad to.
I didn't have kids of my own, but I always wanted them.
The breakup with her was easily the most emotionally painful experience of my life and 6 years later, I still think about her daughter all the time.
