7 Dating Considerations for Divorced Parents
Here are seven considerations, qualities and things to look for in someone who is going to be a stepparent to your kids.
Looking for a new mate as a divorced person with children is tricky -- especially if your children are important to you, which hopefully they are. Why is it tricky? Because it takes time and experience before you can know if someone is mate-worthy. At the same time, it's not recommended to introduce your new friend to your kids until you think the relationship is serious enough to warrant that.
It's also important for your kids and your new prospective partner to like each other or feel some inkling of rapport. If they have bad chemistry right from the start, it makes everything harder when it comes to creating a successful stepfamily.
