What she could use is a massage or a glass of wine. If you feel the need to suggest ways she should alter her parenting and you just started dating, you’re probably going to find yourself kicked to the curb. The only thing that’s acceptable to ask is maybe how old her kids are, but only if she brings them up on the first date.
Until you’re in a serious relationship and you’re actually functioning as a family, then her parenting skills are literally none of your business. Don’t make the situation awkward; let her lead the way on what she wants to talk about and how much she wants to reveal. When she’s ready to talk about her ex (on her own time) and when you find out he’s still in the picture (as he should be), don’t be disappointed.
Like Movoto on Facebook: Around any number of holidays (particularly Christmas and Valentines Day) the Metro North Train that takes Connecticut commuters back and forth to NYC turns into the “train of love.” Cute Connecticut couples who want to get the perfect picture kissing with the tree at Rockefeller Center in the background and fall all over each other while ice skating—all aboard!
So, if you’re dating a Nutmegger, you’re bound to have a profoundly intellectual relationship.They have an overly vivid imagination, an emotional and sometimes reserved nature.They are very dreamy, and are often found zoned out in their own little world which is far from reality.But before you go seeing this as a bad thing, this just means they already know how awesome you are—they’re already putting down a place setting for you at their Thanksgiving table and have already put you on a team for family board games.Connecticuters are born and raised with some interesting politics, which have gotten them the noteworthy nickname, “liberalservatives” (socially liberal, fiscally conservative…) And much like the whole “Yankees/Red Sox” debacle, the glue that often holds a Connecticut relationship together is like-minded, liberalservative politics. And the state is so small that Connecticuters are all about community, family, and love.If the single mom you’re interested in has to back out on plans due to having no babysitter, don’t whine about it — understand that parenting is tough and when you are one, you always put your kids’ needs first. There are two types of guys who shouldn’t bother trying to date a woman with kids: One type is those who think a single mom will be easy to hook up with because she may be unstable and may be craving love; the second type is those who think a single mom has too much baby daddy drama and either stays away or puts his guard up.
