Understanding how these romantic developments affect everyone involved is key to being prepared for what lies ahead.
First I have a look at the unique and often unexpected challenges that the person with no dependents may encounter on this journey. Dating someone with kids is, of course, different to someone without. You have control over your time, diary and freedom, whereas they may have to regularly liaise with the other parent and have their calendar limited or made erratic by custody arrangements, or have children with them full-time.
Be prepared that you may be stood up from time to time. While it might feel frustrating, try to be gracious, understanding and supportive of your date, who will feel equally disappointed and guilty for letting you down. The single parent may have a lot on their plate, but they are likely to have a great deal to offer you: compassion, responsibility, emotional maturity, strength and a ready-made extended family.
Dating is a precursor to marriage and dating someone with kids is a precursor to step-parenting, a role that comes with great responsibility but often very little support. Nature gives biological parents with a few exceptions a fierce bond of enduring love with their offspring, a tool that assists invaluably in the act of raising and bearing with them, no matter how hard things get.
Foster and adoptive parents undergo substantial training and professional preparation, but as a step-parent, you must take on an unclear and tricky to navigate pseudo-parental role without any of this. Be prepared to stand in a soggy field watching sports in the rain, to sit listening to a discordant band and eat dodgy home baking — and be prepared to feel your heart unexpectedly burst with pride and love for them too.
