As it turns out, there are actually a lot of perks to dating someone with kids. (Besides the kids themselves, obviously.)This one is a little selfish on my part: I can't eat candy anymore (I had weight loss surgery nearly eight years ago and sugar is definitely not my friend), but every now and then, I just really want to buy a bag of Skittles.It works out, because the kids get special candy, I don't have to eat it, and I'm the hero.All that said, dating someone with children can be an incredibly rewarding prospect, especially with the right partner.
The kids already have a mom, a grandma, a dad, and a stepdad — they don't need another one.
One of the things that works best about my unique place in the family is that I'm not another adult voice telling the kids what to do, and I'm okay with that.
Same when it comes to carousels and the Dumbo rides.
Because I will never, ever get tired of watching Pixar movies or Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
One of the huge things about dating someone with kids is that they're going to need their family-alone time — and so do I.
