I totally understood why he had to cancel, but the situation also reminded me why he and I could never work and why I will never date a man with children again.
The Cop has two daughters and a demanding job, obviously.
Also, the father will always be connected to the mother, and she has the perfect excuse to intrude on his life whenever she wants to, like calling at all hours of the night.
This level of maturity often translates into a relationship, and a single dad can make an excellent partner.
The single dad can be a good choice for women who like kids but don’t necessarily plan to have children of their own.
Another big issue in this type of relationship is baby mama drama.
Most men try to avoid conflict with the women in their lives at all costs, so it’s a pretty safe bet that he will go along with whatever ridiculousness his children’s mother puts him through.
