For most people, once they hear the guy they like has a kid, they run the other way. These women imagine all sort of crazy scenarios and simply assume that when you date a single dad, you’re only courting trouble.
But it does not have to be so. There are some perks of dating a single father and we’ll analyze them for you below.
1. He is responsible
He is a father and kids require a certain level of responsibility. For instance, he is very likely to be financially stable, focused and mature.
2. He is ready to settle down
Another reason to date a single dad is if you’re looking to settle down. Single fathers don’t have a lot of time for mind games and tricks. If he’s spending time with you and cares about you, chances are, he sees a future with you.
3. The state of his child(ren) will reveal a lot
How many times have you found yourself unsure of what kind of man your guy is? If he has a child, the situation with that kid is very telling. For instance, if he takes care of his child, makes him/her a priority and the kid looks happy and well-adjusted, chances are you have yourself a good man.
4. You have an inkling of what kind of father he will be
When you date a single dad, there’s not a lot of guessing concerning what kind of father he will be to your own kids. You get a front-row seat and a glimpse into what parenthood will be like with this man. Is he an involved parent or is he the type to bail on responsibilities? You have all the answers before you become a mom yourself.
Sure, there are many things to watch out for when you date a single dad but it’s not always all bad. The perks can come in pretty handy.
