Ask SingleDad: Long Distance Relationship

SingleDad wants to help you understand Single Parent Dating
from a Man’s perspective. How To Date a Divorced Dad is the Q&A Single
Parent Dating Advice section on SingleDad. Our question this month comes from a
Single dad that wants to start a long distance relationship but has a couple of
concerns before doing so.


Dear Single Dad,

My name is George and I am a single father with 2 kids. My
wife passed away 2 years ago from a car accident. I recently met this wonderful
woman at a concert in San Francisco, CA. I haven’t dated anyone since her
death. Well I live in Del Mar, CA and she is from San Francisco, CA. We just
started thinking about dating. We were very nervous to start dating because of
the long distance. I come to you for advice, Should I give it a shot or don’t
even try because of the distance?

Curious George,

Dear Curious George,

First thing you should ask yourself is “Am I ready to start
dating yet?” Moving to fast sometimes can lead to heartbreak. If you feel that
you are ready to start dating then go for it. But how do you know if you are
ready to start dating yet? Below are the steps of accepting the loss of a loved
one.

1. Denial and Isolation


2. Anger


3. Bargaining


4. Depression


5. Acceptance

If you feel that you have already completed these steps then
you are one step closer to be ready for a relationship! Dating is not an easy
thing! Dating someone new is not everyone’s favorite thing to do. I mean you
have to get to know someone else, and that usually takes a long time to do so.

Long Distance

This situation is very complicated though. Long distance
relationships are very hard to be in. It’s hard to not be able to show your
love for your significant other. Especially since this is
your first relationship since your wife’s passing.

Start to get to know her better before you guys start
officially dating. Therefore you can’t get hurt as especially, and that there
are no surprises inside of your relationship. To make long distance
relationships work both you and your lady need to come up with a schedule. The
schedule should include the time and dates that you are going to make time to
see each other. Remember that having a mutual driving schedule is the key to
successful relationship. Make sure that you are not the only one driving up to
see her. Make sure she does the same also.
