Dating single dads with daughters - Dating Single Dads

Could it be that there just hasn't been enough time for him to feel comfortable with you and your daughter? It sounds as if more time could easily be spent where he has opportunities to settle into the kind of relationship he would like to have with your daughter. Remember, it isn't always easy to walk into another situation when you are used to what you have at home. You may feel more comfortable with his child simple because you are more easy going, or more in tune with what a young child like his might need. He may not know how to approach connecting with your daughter.
I am a single Mom dating a single Dad. When we started dating my son was 5 years old, his daughter was 17 years. I had no idea how to connect with his daughter or even start conversations. I think she was feeling the same way. His ex is in the picture, so I knew that I didn't need to play any kind of Mommy role. I decided that another friendly, trusted adult in her life would be a great place for me to start. So far it has worked well for us. My son of course loved having a guy around. My son's father is in the picture, but only on weekends. So, it's nice to have time during the week with a grown up guy to do guy stuff with. My son looks forward to nights when my boyfriend comes for dinner.
My advice, give it time, don't over think it. This is the kind of situation where pushing anyone too fast could result in loss of the relationship. Give everyone the space and time they need to come around and develop the kind of relationship they want. 4 months isn't a very long time. I generally don't introduce anyone that I am dating to my son until we have dated for 3 months. I like to determine if the person is the kind of quality person I want in my life, and then evaluate if they are quality enough for my son. By 3 months I feel like I have a pretty good sense of that person and can make the judgement call. I never force interaction between my son and someone I am dating. I will let my son know that there is a friend that Mommy likes and when the time is right that he will get to meet him too.
Also, being that this is your first relationship in a while, I would take some time to practice your dating skills, without the pressure of your children. Date him, get him figured out and then reintroduce the kids to the scene. It can's hurt to just wait a little longer with regards to the children. If he is really into you, and into being a part of your life, he will take an interest in trying to make a relationship with your daughter, but maybe it's too soon for him. Time, and patience and he'll show you his intentions, I promise!
