Mostly they want to know what it means when Mom or Dad falls in love again, and many newly divorced moms and dads don't even have that figured out for themselves. When I threw myself back into the dating pool with all the enthusiasm of a pimply adolescent, the complications appeared immediately.
Child-free men often don't "get" kids; divorced dads come with kids, some still in diapers, some in jail; and not every man I had "chemistry" with was going to click with my Axe-scented boys. That didn't stop me from dating; I really did want to have love in my life again.

But it did cause some stress and a lot of overthinking -- when do you introduce a new love, when can he sleep over, what if your kids don't like him, what if he doesn't like your kids, what if your kids love him and he dumps you, what if your kids love him and you dump him, what if his kids and your kids hate each other, what if everyone loves each other but your parenting styles clash -- the possibilities are endless. Which causes many divorced parents to either freak out and give up on dating altogether or become careless about who and how they date.

While it’s scary to date again after a divorce, it’s very important to protect yourself and be honest by asking him what he is looking for in his dating life- something serious, or casual?The problem is that I feel so insecure about moving forward and if his intentions are just to have fun or to date more seriously. It’s not “too soon” to have this talk, and you can avoid arguments and protect yourself by getting the answer to this critical question."I don't believe there is someone out there who can handle my baggage that's too heavy to lift." She may be right on that; it will take a very, very special someone who'll want to take on eight little kids and a reality TV star.Still, single parents are entitled to a fulfilling personal life and we're looking for it, challenges be damned!And, since most men my age are divorced, too, he'd most likely need me to do the same.
