Dating a divorced older man with children
It was just straightforward, open-ended and once I asked it, I shut up and listened very carefully to his response.) Look, we are not 25 anymore with relatively clean slates. Him: I’m not planning on getting married again so I just haven’t gotten around to it. I’m dating because I’m ready to get married…when I meet the right man. But, when you run into one and he seems interesting, give him the benefit of the doubt until you have a grownup conversation about it.
Some of them are practical, which I’ll get to in a minute.The kids’ main residence is with her, and Adam has the kids a few days a week.The ex constantly sends Adam texts about the kids, from mundane details to complaints about their behavior.If he doesn’t respond to his ex’s calls for help with the kids, he might worry that they aren’t okay and that he’s neglecting their needs.
But if he does respond, he might worry that he’s making you feel angry or unimportant.They may be “on” when they’re around you, the way kids tend to be around people they don’t know well, but if you knew them on a deeper level, you might see more of a range of their internal experience, which probably has its ups and downs.
