who is tracie thoms dating - Being a single dad and dating
Also, a lot of people, including single dads, have crazy exes.
To help you navigate the idiosyncrasies of dating a single dad, we put together a panel of five fathers and asked them to be 100% honest about what they’re looking for in a woman.
The dads: Robert Grand, 39, special education teacher; Phelan, CA.
Divorced for three and a half years; has a daughter, age 10; now engaged to a single mom. Divorced for less than a year; has a 12-year-old daughter and a 10-year-old son.
Mark Kasserman, 47, video producer; San Rafael, CA.
Divorced for 11 years; has two sons, ages 11 and 13. Divorced three years ago; has four children, ages 16, 14, 12 and 9.
Patrick Morris, 43, public relations director; Saratoga, NY. Q: What’s the most important thing for a woman to know when dating a single dad?
Darryl Wooten: Any woman who dates me must know that my kids are everything to me, so if a woman isn’t into my children, it’s never going to work out.
But she also has to be genuine about them — I don’t want her pretending that she likes them only to get me to go on another date. Patrick Morris: I want a woman to know that I’m going to talk about my kids on a first date.
I once went out for a date with a woman who didn’t want to know a thing about my son.
Every time I brought him up, she changed the subject. When you’re a parent, your life revolves around your child.
Robert Grand: Any woman who dates a single dad needs to scale down her expectations and not expect to meet a single dad’s kids right away.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
