I have to agree with Kali here. Dating as a single parent is very tricky. Dating is never drama-free and anyone who says differently is selling something. Kids do not deserve to be thrust into that drama. They have already had their lives disrupted by the divorce. They are working to put things back together and get a sense of normalcy. Disrupting that by introducing them to a boyfriend, letting them get attached, and then the relationship not working out is never a good thing. Your primary responsibility should be to your children, in my opinion, and not to finding a mate. As such, your priorities need to be making sure that they are the most comfortable, the least disturbed, and in a position least likely to disrupt their lives further. Make sure that your relationship is permanent before bringing your children into it.
