How To Date When Children Are Involved


I recently received a question from Andrea, one of the members of our GPS for Love FB community.

There is a percentage of our GPS for Love community, that like Andrea, is divorced and in the process of having to date again.

And if the thought of having to put yourself out there isn’t frustrating, overwhelming and stressful enough, having to do it when children are involved complicates things even further.

It doesn’t matter what age your kids are, bringing a man into your life (and theirs) is something that must be handled delicately.

If done, correctly it can be a great experience for everyone. However, if done incorrectly it can cause lots of emotional damage that can linger for years.

I recorded a quick video where I discuss how to date when there are children involved.

Watch Here…

Hope this helps!

Much Love,

    I’m divorced and have to kids (i’m 36 but look like a very much yonger girl that they don’t even believe i’m a mother). But it seems like i it’s impossible to find the right guy! Men like me, but it seems like it’s just for have some fun and nothing more. So tired of this. And it’s so hard just to find new friends cause everything i do is to work and take care of my girls. Can’t hang out often and have a busy social life. It seems i will be alone forevere.

  2. This is so helpful Joe! I am also a single mom too. I have learned so much on the last 3 dates I had in September. Now, I am realizing I can take my time, go slower and really focus on my son. There is no need to be in a relationship right now. I can focus building new friendships in school, community and church. I can do fun learning activities for my son. I want to be a good role model for my son. It isn’t easy to be co-parenting so I need to be always on top of my communication and stay focused. Thank you Joe!

    Thanks Joe. I’m on the other end of this situation. I’m a year into dating a single father, his daughter is 8, and I still have yet to meet her. I think its great advice for parents to be cautious and careful but those of us on the other side have to figure out ways to be patient.

    • Has he discussed when he plans to include you in his life with his daughter?

      Be careful, there is a fine line between being patient and wasting your time on a on the wrong relationship

    No he hasn’t. Just says he isn’t ready; he is afraid to do so but doesn’t know exactly what he is afraid of.
