3 dating tips for divorcees

25 January 2016, 18:36 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Maybe you are a divorcee or a widower or just single but have children; dating for you will not be easy. No matter how you think your life is in order; when people see children coming with someone they see chaos in their life. It is not your fault but just how things are.

It will be hard for you to get even first to second dates the minute someone knows you have kids

People just don’t like the idea of children, especially small ones to teenagers. They can deal with divorcees or widowers with kids in campus or older but they know that is they take you on, they are taking on your kids too. You want to explain they are not but they actually are.

They will always look at a relationship with you as extra financial problem

Happens mostly if your other half is no longer there or they have just never been supportive and you take care of everything yourself. If it is a relationship that ends up being serious; a household expense with more than one kid for someone who has never had any is a turn off. You will say that you will take care of them yourself but that usually just colours over the margins until they are actually contributing 50-50 when they can just avoid it and date someone with no children.

Kids interfere

They have emergencies, they drop in on house date nights unannounced, they want to stay in the bedroom with their mum, they want to eat part of the special dinner and they also just want to go out with you. Relationship with a person with kids is a relationship with every child that comes with them. Not too many people are comfortable with that, hence opting for someone who does not have all that going on.
