Effects of dating on children
One thing you should definitely do, as the relationship develops, is make sure you still give plenty of time to your children. It is easy to become distracted in a new relationship, but try not to do it at the expense of your kids.
It is important they feel that they are always your number one priority.
They may happen anyway, of course, but keeping everyone engaged in something helps to prevent this.
A very stressful part of being a separated parent is introducing your children to a new partner.
You want very much for everyone to like and accept everyone else, and you are really not sure what you will do if this turns out not to be the case.
Give things time to reach stability, where you and your new partner are comfortable with each other.
Wait until the “honeymoon phase” is over, or at least less intense.
