Here’s what to do: Your go/no-go window remains the third date, but the signals will be all new. My ex self-immolated when I joked about meeting his 6-year-old anytime before she was, say, old enough to drive. I treat my date’s offspring like feral, if adorable, animals—keeping my distance and letting them make the first move.
Online dating is also a great way to date casually and meet interesting people you would not encounter in your daily life.
Both worked out well for me and they can for you too when you start your journey with this exercise. I hear women say, "Now isn't the right time (and I ask them if not now, when?
) or they have to lose 10 pounds before they can even think about dating." This type of thinking comes from fear.
With rugrats in the picture, there’s zero chance you’ll ever be the top person in this woman’s life—but that window of narcissism was short-lived anyway (if it existed at all).
If you are a man interested in dating older women you need to take a different approach than you have in the past.
