I am a single father myself, I have the custody of my child.
It’s never easy for a single parent to find another partner who can accept us with a “package”.
Tried dating and nothing goes well… Reading from the post you have mentioned that your parents are not supportive of this relationship. And they have caused other issues/obstacles for both of you.
But those kids are innocent. They don’t have a choice when they’re born. But we have the choice to make it happened and guide them the right way. The route ahead of you it might not be easy…but as long as you set your determination right, things will be easy.
At least you’ve got a partner to discuss…. If you really see a future with this lady. Don’t neglect her and do what you think it’s right. Not asking you to be unfilial to your parents. But ultimately, you are the one calling the shots and living the rest of the life with your partner.
I realised a lot of men have no issues accepting a woman who has a child from previous marriages but women on the other hand has a lot of things to say.
Back then when I was single this was never the issue, career and lookswise (not bragging) I am above average. When the child gets bring into the picture, the date goes cold and stop replying.
I totally understand that you got caught in between the situation kind of feelings. It’s never easy. But it’ll be fruitful if you take the step and follow your heart.
