Dating a man with a child from a previous relationship
Kids aren’t scary, but if your partner sees that you are not careful with what they hold precious, the relationship won’t last.This doesn’t mean you can be fake; kids can spot a fake person blindfolded. There will be times that your partner will not be able to go out or do things that you want to do because of the kids, so last minute spontaneous outings aren’t the best unless you have taken into account a need for a reliable and trusted sitter (and any other needs). Understand that as much as your partner wants to spend time with you, it is not wise to make them pick between their child and you.[image: via D Sharon Pruitt on flickr] Natasha Miles is an ACSM certified personal trainer who graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a degree in Exercise Science.She has been happily in love with her husband for 10 crazy, amazing, good and not-so-good years.
