Enlightened dating for men

It can feel like a risk since guys generally do not deal well with rejection, especially rejection in a moment of vulnerability.And I can personally admit that love can make me feel vulnerable and can bring up fears and emotions in me that are more than I’m ready to handle at a given moment.The single parent dilemma is felt the hardest by the children, and as a product of such a household I am lucky enough to have this insight in my dating life.

Take it slow and be yourself, help out when you can, or when you’re asked, and the number one thing is to be good to their mom.

Being a boyfriend who openly bombs on mom in front of the kids or being that guy breaking mom’s heart will forever lock you into asshole mode in their minds and you will never get over it.

If you have good rapport with your child, have regular talks with them and they respect you, then it is important that you get their approval.

Check his credentials: If you have a toddler or baby and the guy is okay with dating you, then this next step is important.

Ask your Teen: If you have a teenager it is very important that you get their approval after an introduction or two is made with your potential lover.

If your kid has daddy issues, as in wanting you to stay alone in hopes of your ex coming back into your life – then go ahead and skip the introduction to the new guy.

Most teens are cynical and standoffish to new boyfriends so you have to expect hostility initially.

Don’t go turning on the young man’s Madden game and professing your “skills” in hopes that the video game will bond you to him.

Don’t go talking about the girl’s favorite band as if you listen to it, because she probably knows that you don’t and you will look like a fool trying to get in.
