This can be hard to swallow if you want to be their number one.
Problems will arise if you feel like you are in competition with the kids for love, attention and affection – even couples who are the natural parents of children find they are sometimes jealous of how much time and attention the kids get from their partner – so it is natural that you might get pangs of jealousy, it is what you do with it that counts.
Message 23, I really find the expression "brats" rather offensive.
Nagging or complaining for more attention is likely to get you the opposite to what you want – supporting and encouraging your partner in their role as a parent will help them to feel that you are an aide rather than another role they have to fulfil when they have so much to do already.Some people make the assumption that if a single parent is dating that they are looking for a new mummy or daddy for their kids.All in all dating a single parent requires you to be emotionally mature, and honest.You need to be able to deal with difficult emotions whilst also being supportive, patient and understanding.Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. As some posters have mentioned some guys have exes stuck in the background that like to cause problems well i wouldnt want to get involved in that to be honest.
I am a single parent and i have no problems dating other single parents. I sometimes wonder if it makes a difference to a man how many children a woman has.When you meet a match you connect with the thing you really want to do is spend time with them.For single parents time is usually at a premium and any free time they have will be very precious.Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...You may have been in relationships before where someone was very close to their family or had overprotective parents but nothing is quite the same as dating someone who has sole care of their children – especially if you have not got children yourself.
