And 2) even if their kids aren’t there, they know that at any given time it looks like an A-bomb went off in their house.And because first impressions are everything, and because their time is limited, they will want to wait until you won’t be scared right out the door.Here’s a few pointers and helpful reminders to get you started:1.
Consider this a “how to date a single dad” advice list. He’ll eventually realize he’s doing it and the conversation will then become first date appropriate. But if you have your eye on one, there are a few things you should know about them. First, you should know that he’s going to talk about his kids. I know, I know, the conversation should be greatly focused about you, him, and both of your awesomeness on a first date, but you have to understand that single dads live and breathe their kids and their kids’ happiness, so give him a minute or twenty to get it out of his system.They may have some ketchup or other undistinguishable stains on their sleeves that they didn’t notice.

I would strongly advise not to get involved with the children unless you and this guy are serious.
Keep the relationship between the two of you, and when marriage becomes a consideration, have him introduce you to the kids.
