Children post divorce dating
Or perhaps the child was overly shy and withdrawn, folding themselves into the parent.At younger ages some of this behavior is acceptable. Both the kids and the parents need to return to healthy boundaries and healthy communication styles, so that everyone can grow up, and let go of the stigma and shame of the divorce.Don’t get me wrong, a good sexual chemistry is a powerful motivator.But don’t let the sex cloud your understanding of who the person is, and what other things you like to do together. And initiation of sex shouldn’t cause major shifts in the relationship.
Listen to yourself as you talk about the relationship as well.
If the person doesn’t really open up until a glass of wine or two, you might be rubbing up against someone who has a hard time expressing themselves.
In moderation, as a celebration lifter, a few drinks on the weekend are no problem.
You are likely to take some of the “stand-in” damage for the anger that needs a place to dissipate. But pay attention to how this person deals with these setbacks or conflicts. In my experience, I find a potential partner who has had kids (they can be older or younger than mine) is more likely to be accepting and accommodating of my relationship to my kids. Sure, it’s an interruption, and sure it puts the “special friend” in a secondary role, but it’s clear to me that my kids emotional and physical well-being is much more important than me having a girlfriend.
It’s likely this is how any future conflict with you might evolve, as well. At least at this point in my life, while they are still in school, and still very much under my influence.But if it’s every single night, and the glass of whatever becomes like the cup of coffee in the morning, a necessary lubricant, there is probably an issue there.
