What a lot of people don't know is that my oldest daughter isn't my husband's daughter. When I chose to keep her when I got pregnant at 19 it was a very hard decision because I knew I wasn't going to stay with her dad. I had a lot of things running through my mind like I would be single forever. It was a very hard but as hard as it was I loved my daughter and things were never has hard as I imagined they would be.
Men and women dating people with kids is not rare these days and is more common then we all realize. With every one's busy schedules it's hard to get back in the game and meet people. More then 80% of relationships start online and there are lots of free dating websites around so it's hard to find the best one.
I didn't find my husband online but I did dabble in the idea of it. It's sorta like a blind date except you know a lot more about them before you go out, which is a good thing if you ask me.
I met my husband at work and even though he is younger he instantly jumped at the role to be a step-dad. It was all circumstantial and if events that transpired previously to us meeting then well, we wouldn't have met and our lives would be a lot different.
More women are getting in on the action to dating single parents since more men are taking on the role of single dad. I personally like to see that so many men are stepping up to take care of their kids instead of just leaving the mom to do it.
I was very lucky to find a great man to take on my family and help me create a bigger family with him. Our journey has been interesting to say the least and despite the typical "it won't last" comments we have and will continue to grow our love and family.
