Rule #6: Be sensitive about when and how much time you spend on dates Never sacrifice time with your kids for time with a date, Fisher says.
“Men assume that a mother is less self-oriented and more nurturing and will welcome his children,” Fisher says. Don’t disregard a woman who has never been a mother—she may be wonderful with your kids because there is no one competing for her attention.
Rule #4: Don’t divulge too much about her They’ll want to know her name, what she looks like and whether she has children, but little else.
Rule #7: Keep your online dating ventures to yourself, as well If you meet someone online it is prudent not to show your children her profile.
