Dating a single dad with kids
A few years ago, I started cracking jokes regularly about hot dads.Then when I met a charming, handsome dude with good taste in music and tacos at a secret Santa vinyl swap party last winter, I started dating one.
Just because he has kids doesn’t mean he can’t be “the one.” Here are 15 reasons to date a single dad: 1.
There’s no guessing if he’ll be a good father; you KNOW that he is. He knows how to be patient, gentle and encouraging.
Suddenly the jokes seemed a little creepy, and although I actively pumped the brakes on making them, those familiar with my menagerie of hot dad puns rose a skeptical eyebrow. Hotness aside, there's some unexpected things that happen when you date a single dad.
I've dated ("dated") divorced dudes before, which might be a little similar, but this relationship marks my first with a parent.
They can fix toys, tape hockey sticks and build a mean LEGO tower. (They also know really cheesy family-friendly jokes.) 13. Because of his kids, he still treats his ex and her family with respect. He values character and commitment over shallower qualities. He’s unselfish, having learned to put his youngsters first. Single dads are playful and have a great sense of humor. If you make the cut, he’s serious about the relationship. If he doesn’t have full custody, he likely has every other weekend free.
