Dating is not easy under any circumstances. Dating as a single dad comes with its own set of peculiar challenges. It can nevertheless be fun, exciting, and satisfying. You need only bear in mind that fatherhood does not eliminate your needs as a man. You still have the right to meet women, to court them, be intimate with them, and form new relationships. Here are a few tips on how to best do that as a single father.
DON'T LOSE SIGHT OF YOURSELF
Work and parenting your child take up the vast majority of your time. You must do both well. But you cannot as a result lose sight of the person you are. No matter the circumstances that led to you raising a child on your own, who you are at your core has not changed. You will of course have to adjust the way you express it given your current situation. However, you should not give up on your love life. Nor should you give up on your interests. If you were an athlete, an artist, or a writer before your child was born, you should continue to pursue those activities now.
YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE HOW WILL CARE
It can be hard to leave your children with a babysitter. You may feel guilty because of the long hours you spend at work and the little time it leaves you to spend with them. But just keep this in mind: you are doing the best you can. It will do you or them little good to go long periods of time without female attention and affection.
DO YOU WANT MORE KIDS
If you are dating someone new and it is taking a turn for the serious, then you must be prepared to answer this question.
