6. FAMILY VACATIONS ARE SO MUCH FUN.
You’ve probably heard horror stories from other parents on what it’s like to travel with kids, but depending on how old his children are, your vacation might turn out to be the most fun you’ve had in a long time! Family vacations are all about fun, kid- and adult-friendly resorts and activities that everyone can enjoy. You won’t believe how exciting it can be to relieve your childhood with your guy and his children!
7. HE’S A NATURAL NURTURER.
He’s probably changed diapers, placed band-aids on bloody knees, and rocked ill children to sleep more times than he can remember. This means he’ll be just as nurturing, patient, and kind when it comes to you too!
8. HE PROBABLY WON’T GHOST YOU.
A guy with a kid isn’t out to play games. He’s dealing with way too much on his plate than to string you along or ghost you out of the blue. This isn’t to say all guys with kids are great and that there aren’t a few jerks out there. I’m sure there are more than a few bad apples in the bunch, but if he’s really a devoted dad and you’ve already met his kids, the chances of him poofing into thin air are slim to none. Not only will you be a part of his life, you’ll be a part of his children’s lives too, and he’d never introduce them to you if he planned on leaving you in the dust.
9. HIS CO-PARENTING SKILLS WILL COME IN HANDY.
You’re probably cringing at the thought of meeting his kids’ mom one day. However, there’s a bright side to all of this: You’ll get to see how he interacts with his former flame, and his co-parenting skills might actually help to better your relationship too. Raising children with his ex means he’s probably a pro at communicating his wants and needs and he knows how to compromise. Those are all wonderful traits that also make for a great boyfriend!
10. HE’S MORE MATURE.
Parenthood is a huge responsibility, and if you’re planning on dating a guy with kids, just know that he’s likely way more mature than other childless guys his age. A guy with kids will have to deal with many tough situations that cause him to grow up and be more mature. So, if you’re looking for someone who’s responsible and has a lot of life experience, a single dad is the right guy for you!
