Tips on dating woman with kids

No one wants to be the Captain Ahab of the dating world.2.

It's about finding the puzzle piece you fit with and the Ernie to your Bert.4.

By Jennifer Wolf So you've got your eye on a single mom.

She's smart, strong, and beautiful, but also a bit of a mystery. And how do you let her know that you're not just playing games—without getting overly involved too soon?

In fact, I'd been going about being single all wrong.

When I started seeing my husband, aka the first guy I wasn't embarrassed to tell my therapist about, I was gobsmacked to realize how much I hadn't known about dating before then.

I didn't have very much fun at it, which is depressing since I didn't pair up until my 30s.Besides, so much luck was involved in my finding my match that there are probably more alternate universes where I'm still living solo than where I'm married.I realize that my past experiences have made me who I am today, but I still wish I could go back in time and have a sisterly chat with poor, clueless, "younger me."I could've written three novels, started a business and hiked the Appalachian Trail with all the wasted time and energy.It's too late for me, but maybe you can learn from what I wish I knew then.1.Finding a romantic partner is only one of many goals you can have at once.There's a difference between making something a priority and having an obsession.
