Recently, he and I made plans to have a friendly, totally platonic drink to celebrate my promotion.
He canceled the day of because his youngest daughter had hit her head and he’d spent the previous night in the emergency room.
Another big issue in this type of relationship is baby mama drama.
Most men try to avoid conflict with the women in their lives at all costs, so it’s a pretty safe bet that he will go along with whatever ridiculousness his children’s mother puts him through.
An only child is probably a bit more conscientious and might be horrified by this behavior.
You might have had to speak up in order to survive.
The Cop has two daughters and a demanding job, obviously.I did this once and, let me tell you, I learned my lesson.I dated The Cop off-and-on for about six years and I have to admit that love kept me from realizing just how big a problem his children were in our relationship.The girls’ mother also had a demanding job, so she never seemed available to deal with her own children.So this brings me to my first point: If you date a man with children, you can never expect to come first.
