Dating a separated man with children

• What is your advice on dating a separated man with children?

Linda Bloom, L.C.S.W.:

If you choose to date a separated man with children, he may not want you to be involved with his kids until the relationship is well established. He will be protective of his children who have already experienced a loss with the separation from their mother. He wants to spare the kids the pain of getting close to another woman who may not be in their life on a long-term basis, which is so understandable. Once the relationship is stronger and better established, your patience, attention, and involvement with his children are a way of showing love to him. Being willing to share his attention and not being competitive with his kids for his time and devotion is also a way of showing your love to him.
