datingadvice com - Pros and cons of dating someone with a child

Having had a relationship, a wedding and a shared home will have given them a chance to find out who they are and what is important to them.

This experience is invaluable when forming a new relationship. Open-mindedness – often a person who has been through a divorce may have a complicated family life with ex in-laws, children and contact with their spouse.

Or if you just want to try dating a younger man, but aren't looking for the long-term, what the heck—enjoy a fling! I've had clients insist they want to date a man much younger.

This narrows your options dramatically and can prevent you from finding a good match.

But if I were given the opportunity to have more than one child, I would. This taught me how to interact with people much older than myself. Being an only child was great for me as an introvert. I’d still have play dates with friends, but a lot of the time, I just hung out on my own, which I totally didn’t mind. One of the effects of spending a lot of time with adults was that I learned early on how to think like them.

When I got married, Tim noticed that I had lots of older women friends and that I would strike up conversations with people older than us with much more ease than he would. Not having siblings meant that I had to make decisions on my own. In my growing up years, I would often hear the comment, “You are so mature for your age!

Naturally there are wonderful things about being romanced by someone younger, as well as a number of challenges.

But in recent years, the tables turned and now many women are dating younger men.

For every upside to middle school romance, there’s a pretty harsh downside.

Rejection is hard at any age but especially so at a stage when you feel physically, emotionally, and socially vulnerable.

Everyone knows that older men love dating younger women (and many of my female coaching clients complain about this).
