Overview

Dating for Dads: The Single Father's Guide to Dating Well Without Parenting Poorly by Ellie Slott Fisher

Here is the first book written specifically for men who date while answering to a higher authority: their children.

As a single father, you’re ready to begin dating again. But are your kids ready? In this much-needed guide, relationship expert Ellie Slott Fisher comes to the rescue with no-nonsense, no-judgments advice on everything from how to ask a woman out to navigating the potential minefield of overnight dates.

Single dads are as nervous as single moms about merging their parental responsibilities with their social lives, but they often don’t have intimate friendships in which to share their concerns. Drawing on her own experience as a single parent, interviews and surveys she conducted with more than a hundred single fathers and their children, and the advice of family therapist Dr. Paul Halpern, Fisher gives the lowdown on a range of tricky topics, including:

•When do I introduce my kids to the woman I’m dating?
•What if they don’t like her?
•Is it acceptable to date someone closer to my child’s age than my own?
•Are sleepovers okay when my kids—or her kids—are home?
•How do I give my children the reassurance they need while pursuing a social life of my own?

Plus, how to avoid one of the biggest dating pitfalls: mistaking lust for love. From dealing with your ex-spouse to protecting your children’s inheritance, and many issues in-between, Fisher gives single fathers the tools they need to be both sexy suitors and devoted dads.
