A reader asked a question in regards to dating a woman with a child. He describes his situation
in detail and ask for honest advice. The article fails to reveal the underlying issues in the dating world with or without children. First the question is from a 23 year old dating an older woman by ten years. Second, the man clearly states how he barely does for this woman and she is showering him with gifts and affection. Third, the advice given is based on what the man truly wants, with emphasis on how he will never be the priority. This young man claims she spends every night with him and all her free time. He doesn't know if he should pursue this relationship any further. Doc Love forgot to tell this young man that if indeed he wants to pursue this relationship he must step up to the plate and become a man. The young man already chose to have some sort of relationship with a woman having a child. This is a manly decision if he should have pursued the relationship in the first place. Although, Doc Love is correct with some of his advice. Telling this young man that he may never be the priority is wrong, being a man, he would understand that a child needs more love an attention than himself at moments. Doc Love should emphasis more than the facts of being a man than what feels good at this moment.
There is always enough love to go around with any amount of people or children in a relationship.
