Though easy to fall for the thrilling playboys or flakey party gals, avoid them and let stability in the relationship matter more than any fleeting feeling.
It's exciting to start dating again, but don't hurry into anything. Enjoy fun while maintaining self-respect, principles, discipline, and wisdom.
Date yet spend weekends and after school with your kids. Don't cancel kids' plans. They may hide it, but feeling second-best hurts.
Even after defining this relationship, you may wish to wait an additional three months to determine whether it will withstand the test of time.
Before falling in love with a date, obtain their last name and as much information as possible for kids' safety.
Try to make your partner feel as if they are the only person in the world. This is the (possible) future, not the past.
If you include your children in your dating life, they will attempt to defend you and end up maturing too rapidly.
