would you still date a guy if your kids don't like him?

Posted by   + Show Post
My kids dad and I broke up about 2 years now. I'm dating a new guy who loves my kids like his own. Now we live together and I'm starting to see he is getting too comfortable. My 5 year old daughter doesn't like him and my 2 year old son is ok but sometimes when we go to the store he doesn't want him to touch the basket. We were engaged for a few months but I called it off since we were having problems. Now I'm wondering if I should stay with him because I don't want to be with someone if my kids are uncomfortable with him. I NEED HELP!!!

 I agree with this.

Quoting MissAmber6:

In my opinion I would break it off, it's not just your happiness but your kids too and I'm also a fond believer that young children can sense not so good people.... A fulfilling life for you and your kids doesn't seem like an option in this case. But maybe you should try and figure out why your kids don't like him first if you are really wanting it to work.

If my daughter didn't like him, he'd be gone. She's my number one priority and he is just a 2nd rate person compared to her. If you all are having problems and your kids don't like him, those are too many red flags for me.

Find a new place to live and a new start and don't repeat this again.  Before you move in with a man be 100% certain you will be married and your children accept/like him.  Kids first.

There are other fish in the sea.  This guy is a red flag.  Your kids should come first.  If your bf can't see that then you need to say goodbye to him.

 it would depend on why they said they didnt like him. if they had a legit reason i wouldnt. if they were doing it to be a brat or because they had false hopes id get back w their dad, i probably would. id mayube have them take a step back until the kids were comfty again though.
