I think it is different for everyone, and that there are many, many factors involved in the decision.
They include: These are only a few things you should think about.
It’s all part of being a parent, but it’s a very useful character trait when it comes to getting to know someone too.
With emotions that include shock, anger, sadness, depression, but sometimes even happiness, kids’ reaction to their divorced parents dating can be all over the board.
So, when is the right time to let your kids know you’re dating?
Make sure to say, “The women I date will never, ever take your mom’s place, and will never try to be your mother.” And “I will always love you the same as I do now, no matter who I meet and even if I end up falling in love with someone someday.” There are some guidelines I think parents should consider when it comes to starting to date and their children: In closing, when it comes to dating, any divorced dad or mom knows IT”S COMPLICATED! Divorced Guy Grinning is a blog for men facing divorce and dating after divorce. I have been around the children, 8 and 10 a few times. Thy have seen me talk with mom as well and knows we are friends....problem is they have no idea I'm daddy's girlfriend and we have been together for over 18 months and want to move in together. Should he tell them we are dating and let them get used to it before the moving in bomb? We have been looking online for advice but can't find our situation on here. Go to lunch, or for ice-cream, or get your nails done with the girl. Reply I dated a divorced dad from my hometown a couple yrs ago who had 3 kids under 10 yrs. Oh, ex gets 1/2 his pension too after retirement, & the kids get the house.
It's kind of like hanging out with your platonic female divorced friend and hearing her perspective on your divorce and your love life issues. I would wait at least 3 months after to tell them you are moving in together. also, make sure their father and mother tell them that nothing is going to change as far as their relationship, that mom and dad still love them and care for them as much as ever, that they will always be there for them, and that you are there, not to take the place of their mother, but as another source of support and love and someone they can lean on for advice and help. Then, you can look forward to repeating all of that with grandkids- theirs (not mine) wry smile.
That could mean watching a football game with my friends or having dinner with a woman. I can only give you my opinion--which might not be right.

When you meet someone you are crazy about, it is so hard to “hide it” and not see the person a lot, but good things come to those who take it slowly and put their kids first! But here goes, I say you sit the kids down and tell them you are dating and that you care for each other very much and that their mother is OK with it (you should tell her you are doing that first.) Then wait a few weeks and during that time, do stuff with them--short things. Tough situation (for me, not them, they all have each other).
