My daughter is dating a girl

We started dating casually, but we fell for each other hard and fast.

So if you ever find yourself thinking that you are just tolerating our kids because we are a “package deal”, just leave. Being a single parent with a vindictive ex who would be willing to do anything to remove you from your child’s life, is pure hell. We are going to have arguments with our child’s mother and threats of going back to court.

We don’t have time to waste in a relationship with someone who “tolerates” our kids. We don’t need you to fix anything or tell us what to do.

Most of that dating was fairly casual, but I have been in a couple relationships—the most recent and most serious of those relationships having lasted just under two years. Or at least I realize now looking back on it just how easy it was.

You can live your life, go out on dates, and pretty much do whatever you want within the confines of the law for 26 days out of the month.

We might act like it doesn’t bother us, but it does.

It pisses us off, and sometimes on the rough days, it makes us question whether we really are good at this whole “daddy thing”.

Now I find myself re-entering the dating world as a 31-year old single dad.

Watching the successes and failures of my married friends’ relationships got me thinking; what exactly am I and other single dads looking for in our potential mates?

Sure, we know you think we are great at it, but we need to hear it.

Plus, when you feed our egos, the odds are it will pay off for you in the near future.

But once I suddenly had her half the time, it became almost impossible for us to make plans together.
