She was fashionably late but I didn’t mind, she was stunning. I walked her to her car and she gave me a big kiss.She met my family and was an instant hit with them all, my children loved her.It is natural to want your new love to lavish you with attention and affection but if you are dating a single parent the chances are their kids get the largest share of their attention.
They will naturally be reticent about introducing someone new into their children’s lives too soon – they will usually want to be sure of the relationship themselves first.
Remember you are the grown up and they are the kids – talk to your date if you don’t know how to be with them.
Try not to adopt a certain role, or lavish children with gifts to win their affection, they will see through you.
Most single parents are dating because they want to shed their role as mum or dad for a while and engage in the adult world.
By fulfilling their needs they will be more able to give their children what they need.
