About 3 weeks ago I started dating a man that I knew since 4th grade. He has full custody and has help from his live in sister and nephew. About 3 weeks ago he contacted me telling me that he admired me and that he wants me.
He asked me out on a date and told me whenever I'm free I can set the date. We talk to each other daily mostly by text which is fine and it's usually briefly asking how our days are going, good morning etc.
As a single dad wading back into the dating pool, Daniel Ruyter was surprised how many women lost interest when he revealed, always in the first conversation, that he had a son."At first I took it personally," said the Orlando, Fla., information technology analyst, who was 32 when he divorced and got joint custody of his then 5-year-old son.
"I found it very arbitrary that before they got to know me, they had decided against me."But as Ruyter cycled through "close to 100" first dates and a few long-term girlfriends (a scheduling feat, considering half his week was devoted to his son), his romantic standards heightened in ways they may not have pre-fatherhood.
I enjoy the artistic expression of actor/comedian Louis CK.
Part of what I like about him is that he's also a single dad, and I identify with much of what he portrays on his TV show.
(French-braiding a 6-year-old’s hair is tricky.) 3. Nothing helps someone “grow up” faster than a dependent child. He understands his role as a leader and role model. Dads are protective and create safe environments for their loved ones.
Even the most macho dads can be tenderhearted nurturers when the situation calls for it. I think he's one of the funniest comics in the business.I imagine Louis and I could be great friends, and I'm sure many guys in my situation feel the same about him.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 have written journals for years, but this is my first time sharing any of my feelings publicly.
