Single mom dating divorced dad
I wanted to share my tips on how to thrive while dating a divorced dad in case it’s a risk you’re thinking about taking.When you date a dad, there’s a fear that you have to compete with his children for his time and attention.

Falling in love with a divorced dad over six years ago was scary.
