I know this is going to be waste of my time, you’re going to disappoint, reject, or not be good enough for me.” You’ll be right. That being said, you also don’t have to have a serious and weighty conversation about it. If you act like your child is a burden and that your situation is difficult, he will feel that your situation is a difficult burden. If you let things slide or hide your obligations for his sake, you will likely end up hating yourself and/or resenting him. You need and deserve to feel sexy, beautiful, and confident again!

While the age of the child plays a factor, if you’re not looking for anything serious, you shouldn’t play the “I’ll figure it out” game with a ready-made family.
Further, if you’re not a kid person or don’t want kids, you should not date a woman with kids to see if you’ll change your mind.
It may appear effortless, but effortless actually takes more effort.
Respect that it’s a big deal when she introduces you to her kids.
But when deciding to date a woman with a child, you should be clear about your expectations for the relationship upfront with yourself and her.
In other words, if you’re still in the “dating just to date” phase of your life, involving a woman with a child is probably not the type of relationship you should engage in because your actions will more than likely impact the lives of two people — the woman and the child.

But if a single mom invites you over for dinner — whether a romantic evening for two, or with her kids — she had to clean up a whole lot of Legos and finger paint and sting cheese wrappers, and wrangles in an extra trip to the market and wine store to make it happen.
Plus, it tells her (and any other woman, for that matter) that she was your Plan B for the evening. But if you really want to see her, give her plenty of time to sort out her schedule. In fact, if you DON’T appear interested in her family she’ll think that you’re not into kids. When a guy laughs at my funny-kid story, or is sympathetic about my mom worries, I’m in. But if you tend to take turns picking up the bill, but she sometimes rearranges her life to get out of the house and pays for a babysitter so she can spend time with you, acknowledge that.“You look great for a mom.” That. But she wants to feel like you’re interested in her in every part of her womanhood — including motherhood. If it has been more than a few months, or things get very serious very quickly, and she hasn’t brought up introducing the kids, bring it up.
Know that when she invites you over, it is more work for her than when you invite her over.
