Dating for the single dad
Dating on its own is just hard enough even for singles… now imagine how hard it must be for single dads raising kids alone. Since there is so much support and advice for single mothers, I figures it was time to include the singles dads since men too get joint/sole custody or widowed.
One thing that usually makes it difficult for a single father is that most women usually expect the men they are dating to place them at the top of their priority lists… even before work and family. If this is quite hard for a single guy to keep up with, how is a full time single dad expected to date when the kids have to come first? Check out this one for example: He has got so much in his hands... should drinking beer come before feeding the baby and dressing himself up? Now add a woman to that equation :lol:
Well here is the first rule of dating for single dads… BE SELECTIVE. Would you rather go through dozens of bad relationships princesses that want undivided attention or wait around for a woman who appreciates and understands the primacy of your role as a father? Much as most women like coming first, there are those realistic ones who not only accept that being a Dad comes first, but also find it VEEEERY SEXY ;-)
Your perfect partner could be online right now...

So where are these women? I have nothing against women who go to bars and clubs, but if that is your hunting ground, then expect the younger and less mature women. Shift your gear to coffee shops and book clubs. Don't be afraid to date single mothers… you both share dedication to family and share many experiences.
And don't forget the all times sakes favorite… online dating sites. Once you find the right woman online, introduce her to the kids. Do this delicately and make sure the kids realize that your lady can never replace their mother. Hope that helps guys.
