Check out some tips: There will be times you might not even be second (or third! Just know that her child's schedule, meals and needs will come before yours.
But when deciding to date a woman with a child, you should be clear about your expectations for the relationship upfront with yourself and her.
In other words, if you’re still in the “dating just to date” phase of your life, involving a woman with a child is probably not the type of relationship you should engage in because your actions will more than likely impact the lives of two people — the woman and the child.
The only thing that it changes is knowing this relationship will have more requirements.
People in this situation can and do have success, and often end up in happy marriages.
