Dating a man with daughter
“You’ve got to be prepared to deal with and interact with her regularly,” says Rhonda Findling, author of .
This could be as infrequent as answering her occasional phone call to regularly making plans for pick-ups or drop-offs and filling her in about anything that happened when her kids were at your place.
Dates may sometimes canceled in cases where the child gets sick or a babysitter is not possible.
Instead of wallowing or getting frustrated, make sure you have a life outside of him.
Dating is hard enough, but when you add someone else's kids to the equation, things can get tricky. Tall, Dark and Handsome walks up to you, smiles and introduces himself.
You take one look at him and become excited — think this just might be your lucky day.
As the words tumbled from my mouth, all three gave me ‘the look’.

Just as soon as you thought your prayers have finally been answered, he tells you he'll call you once he drops off the kids..his baby momma's house. So what's a woman to do when she meets a single dad?The mother can play a critical role in her daughter's treatment of you because of both the mother's direct input and the loyalty her daughter feels to her.If you and the daughter's father are serious, many of the dynamics of the stepdaughter-stepmother relationship may be called into play.You should attend to the problem sooner rather than later, as letting this pattern continue unchecked will ensure that you never feel welcome in the family structure, according to psychologist Marie Hartwell-Walker in the "Ask the Therapist" feature "Boyfriend's Kids Disrespect Me" for "Psych Central." Adult children of divorce report that their relationships with their fathers typically remain satisfactory unless certain curveballs are introduced, including the father's early remarriage, according to the 2003 study “Adult Children and Their Fathers: Relationship Changes 20 Years After Parental Divorce,” led by Constance R.Ahrons, senior research associate with the Council on Contemporary Families, and published in “Family Relations.” Whether or not your relationship seems to be headed quickly toward marriage, his daughter's dealings with you will not improve until they improve with her father.
