Dating for Parents Made Simpler!
As a single parent, it's important to make wise choices, especially regarding the individuals you bring into contact with your children. It's wise to use the acronym CHECK to filter out poor choices:
Character (C): a person's character reveals who they are when no one is looking. When it comes to dating, you're not just concerned with an individual's integrity and moral character. You also need to look at whether they're able and willing to maintain a job, resolve conflict, and delay gratification. Another important component to character is how we react to anger. Becoming out of control or explosive, or taking anger out on others, should definitely be deal breakers!
Healthy Relationships (H): Take a look at his or her relationships with extended family members, authority figures (like bosses), and (if applicable) his or her relationship with their ex. Beware anyone who has a tendency to blame others in their life for not being able to get on with, or maintain a relationship, Take special notice of how he or she treats loved ones.
Easy to be Around (E): Does the person find it difficult to compromise? Do they have a tendency to rant, whinge and complain? Do you share common interests? Do you have fun together? These factors are important to consider, along with whether you are physically attracted to one another.
Children (C): Does the person's children get on with you, or do they resent you being around? Observe how he or she interacts with your children - do they show an interest, or do they see your children as an irritation? Do they have positive, caring relationships with their children, or does the parent prefer time away from their kids to spend on their own activities and hobbies? It's particularly helpful to have similar expectations of how children should behave..
Kindness (K): Never underestimate the importance of how someone else treats you. In time, the first flush of love will disappear, but how he or she makes you feel will endure. Do they surprise you with little treats? Do they compliment you? Do they genuinely love to be around you? If you're not consistently feeling good about yourself in his or her presence, that's a red flag that this dating relationship may not be healthy for you..
