Non Negotiables for Single Fathers
Non negotiable as a man with children in the dating scene.
No woman should be a consideration in your life if your child does not like her. This does not apply to children entering the teenage or wonder years stages when they don't want you to be with anyone else except their mother. You know when a child is avoiding or choosing not to engage with someone and/or feels like a third wheel.
If she offers to cook for you at your home and/or pick up something for you to eat, knowing your child is present, and picks up enough for herself or just the two of you-She's a throw away.
If she can not enjoy family oriented activities and down time together then she is not a keeper.
Last, and most important, if she does not treat your child like her own then she is not a keeper.
