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. It's only fair. I get plenty of alone time — without the guilt. Same when it comes to carousels and the Dumbo rides. Truthfully, if I ever found myself genuinely interested in someone who happened to be a parent, I would be willing to give it a shot.

And even if I am, I don't have any real interest in being one, which is fine by me.
I just don't know if I'm cut out to be a mom.

Updated: May 21, As a woman who doesn't want kids of her own, I've always been a little apprehensive about dating someone who has.

While 4th grade English might not be the toughest nut to crack, I still feel like a genius when I get to show a kid how to cite sources on a piece of paper never mind that it's wide ruled paper and it's a paper about photosynthesis.

Toe lightly when it comes to integrating yourself in the family
They're usually extra-colorful and whimsical and probably aren't going to make you barf. Despite the fact that I work with children every day in an education environment, I'm pretty clueless when it comes to family life, bedtimes, and the art of things called Skylanders.

In the same way, I'd expect my partner to have disclaimers of their own about how they lead their romantic lives and their family lives. You have a reasonable excuse to go on kiddie rides. Over time, though, the fears have washed away and I'm learning how to be a girlfriend to a dad.
It works out, because the kids get special candy, I don't have to eat it, and I'm the hero.
