Baby as in an infant… swaddling clothes, drooling mouth, night-time cries? It’s one thing to meet a potential love interest who has children from a previous relationship or marriage, but if the possible SO has a crib in his/her bedroom and car seat in the vehicle, would you think to yourself: maybe it’s too soon?
I ask this as a friend of mine was set up on a blind date with a nice, successful man. He is bright, a great conversationalist and seemingly sweet, but he also has a daughter just a couple months old. My friend was surprised he’d already be on the dating scene and wondered just how things were left off with the baby’s mother. My friend’s fear? That he has too much going on in his life and heart to even think about bringing another woman in the picture.
Have you ever dated someone who had a bambino tucked under her arm? Or a fellow whose Ex just gave birth? Or have you been that new single parent looking for love within months of your child’s birth? How did it impact your relationships?
