Dad with shared custody dating
We went out on one date so far which went well after the date he picked up one of his best friends (whom he introduced me too) and then took me home. The communication is 50/50 of reaching out equally . I'm really starting to like him and I love the fact that he's a great dad to his daughter.
There was about 1 time when he wasn't able to spend time with me and didn't call me to tell me because something came up but I told him to at least to just communicate with me if something comes and he agreed. I told him he was a great dad and he really appreciated it.
I imagine Louis and I could be great friends, and I'm sure many guys in my situation feel the same about him.When I dated men who had kid(s) it was usually joint custody or weekend arrangements so they had a little more time to spend in relationships. He works full time and so do I, as well as a part time night student so I know that I won't be available all the time.I'm starting to worry that I won't see him that much now and that may ruin the chances of a future relationship because he's a single father.The compelling vulnerability that two people at this stage of life readily reveal so soon after meeting, and sometimes even on a very first date, can be so freeing.It's because we know ourselves so much better at this stage of life, and when it feels right, it's like we're 20 years old again but without the insecurities and naivete of our youth.
