Love is a strange yet interesting thing, after all in many cases love is blind and extremely unpredictable.
Take the case of single dads.
On the surface, many women would not want anything to do with a guy who already has children and potentially a psychotic ex-partner, yet many women are able to look beyond the obvious complications and fall in love regardless.
As a former single dad, I know first hand the difficulties we dads face when it comes to finding romance and true love.
How to make a single dad fall in love with you?
If you’re a woman (or a guy) here are some ways to entice him:
- We want you to like our children
- We are not into head games
- Let us know you appreciate us
- We want you to lean on us for support
- We want you to desire us sexually
- We want to earn your trust
- We don’t want to be judged
- We don’t want to play head games
- We want you to make us look good
- We don’t want you to pity us
Assuming you already have a guy in mind, let’s take a moment to go over each one of these points and see how this can all work to your advantage in snagging that guy of your dreams. Sounds good?
We Want You To Like Our Children:
This one should be fairly obvious, and to most people it is. However, where many women really get it wrong is in the sense that they are sending out the wrong vibes or messages.
What do I mean?
Quite frankly, they offer nice words yet their actions do not match the platitudes that they offer.
For example, they may make many false promises with zero intent on fulfilling them, or when talking directly they may constantly look down at their phone obviously disinterested.
And the worse one yet is the date who continuously rolls her eyes during the conversation.
I get it, you may not 100 percent click with his daughter but the least you could do is take an active interest in what they say or the life that they lead..
And if you can’t for whatever reason, mention this to your man and see if he can offer some type of advice.
After all, single dads love to be included in such matters as it goes a long way in validating that you want to take an active interest in his life.
We Are Not Into Head Games:
Most single dads have been around the block a time or two, and trust me during their life they have had their share of head games – probably more than they would like to admit.
Whether you’re dating a single dad already, or you simply have your sights set on one, the best way to go about the relationship is to act more mature and level-headed than the average woman.
Let him know through your actions that you have a sense of logic opposed to being ruled simply by your emotions; this will certainly separate you from the other eligible dates he may be considering.
Let Us Know We Are Appreciated:
Being a single dad is hard work and many times all our efforts and performance will go unnoticed.
Between raising children, dealing with stress at work, and all the other things that can occur on a daily basis, most single dads feel unappreciated and unloved.
That’s why single dads absolutely love when they are recognized by someone who they are truly interested in; a compliment will go a long way in winning some points with him.
Trust me on this: if you want to win him over you will want to stand out from most women who refuse to recognize his efforts.
We Want You To Lean On Us For Support:
Single dads have the uncanny ability to nurture and care for those around us. I call it a learned skill we have developed as a result of raising small children.
Because of our ability to nurture and tune in to the feelings of those around us, we find potential mates who are brave enough to lean on us for support attractive; insomuch that often we are immediately drawn to them as friends or potential lovers.
If you want to attract a single dad, make him feel that he is valued and allow him to be there to pick you up in bad times while celebrating the good times as well.
We Want You To Desire Us Sexually:
Most women interested in or are considering dating a single dad have this impression that they are so consumed in with their children that sex is a distant thing that consumes them very little.
It’s unfortunate that we are viewed by some folks as asexual.
You would be pleased to know that this misconception is far from the truth. Single dads are very sexual given the right circumstances.
In other words, once we’re in a mutually supportive relationship free from most stress then we can begin to open up sexually.
Once we feel comfortable with you then opening up sexually becomes a fun and adventurous exploration with the right partner.
We Want To Earn Your Trust:
Single dads understand that trust doesn’t come without earning it, and that’s why the majority of us want to earn your trust.
However, in order to earn your trust and really take things to the highest level, you first must let your guard down and allow us to enter into your life.
Just like you, we understand that people naturally want to protect themselves by putting a wall up to protect their feelings from getting hurt.
Lucky for you we are in-tune with your feelings much more than the average guy with no kids – this comes from years of nurturing children so we’ve become a bit of an empath over time 🙂
We Don’t Want To Be Judged:
Everyone makes mistakes in life, and for the majority of us, single dads having a child with the wrong partner is something many of us lament.
Indeed, we truly love our children don’t get me wrong but choosing the wrong partner is something we don’t really want to dwell on.
If we could go back in time and choose a different partner most of us would do it in a heartbeat.
However, that scenario, of course, is unrealistic for obvious reasons.
My point being? we all make mistakes in life, so rather than looking for opportunities to rub salt in the wounds because we ended up with some crazy ex, a better approach is to support us in our quest to move forward as a successful dad and lover.
We Don’t Want To Play Head Games:
If you haven’t noticed already, most single dads have been around the block so to speak.
We’ve long past the notion of playing head games is somehow intertwined with a healthy relationship.
If you really are serious about snagging someone who happens to be a single dad, then I suggest you think long and hard about why you want to date this person.
And to make your decision easier, may I suggest you check out one of my previous articles as well.
Once you make the decision to move forward with him, treat the relationship as something you cherish – without the head games.
We Want You To Make Us Look Good:
Like any healthy sexually charged relationship, single dads are your typical guy who get’s turned on by having their partner look sexy.
When you go out we encourage you to dress up for us, put on some makeup, hold our masculine arms and compliment us in every sense of the word.
By doing so, you allow us to feel like men and this translates into a more sexually charged relationship.
Of course, all the points I provided above still apply, but let’s face it physicality in any relationship is what’s needed – and desired – to keep the flames burning.
Most single dads enjoy a sexy partner, and when our partners look and feel sexy it transmits the type of energy around us as well – especially when we go out on a date and the people around us take notice!
We Don’t Want You To Pity Us:
I get it, most of us have bills we have to pay, child support, educational fees, long hours at work, and some of us have drama carried over from our previous relationship.
Given all the stress-related things that go on in our lives, it’s easy to take pity on someone you love.
Taking pity on someone you’re dating, however, is definitely not a healthy way to go about things.
Why? Not only is it not healthy for a relationship, but it also radiates to that person and damages their self-esteem and self-worth.
Rather than taking pity on the life of a single father, a better approach would be to accept the situation that they’re in and be there as a supportive partner without judgment or malcontent.
If you take the latter approach I promise you that the relationship will be healthier and a hell of a lot stronger.
