Dating a Single Dad
You’ve watched We Bought a Zoo with Matt Damon and thought to yourself that maybe dating single dads is the way to go. Because Damon is perfect, isn’t he? In reality dating a single dad can be fabulous or a disaster. It depends on what kind of man he is. If he is a wonderful father and terrific boyfriend, then of course you will want to date him. If his parenting methods are the polar opposite of yours and he only cares about his child, or doesn’t care enough about his child and you end up caring for it, then there is a problem. It’s about the man, not whether he has a child or not. Of course, you might want to meet single dads if you have children yourself as it can make it easier if he understands what it’s like to be a parent.
