With divorce rates being so high, it is very likely that at some point you will find yourself being attracted to a guy or gal that already has children from a previous marriage or relationship. This scares many people off, but don't be one of them! People who have kids already are often more fulfilled and know what they want from life. Additionally, a woman who has already children won't be bugging you all the time if her biological clock starts ticking!

Therefore, if you want to date white women and you find online the girl of your dreams but then she reveals she has a child, don't freak out. Give it a chance and if you ask the right questions then you will be able to determine if you are ready for such a relationship or not. Following is a list of things to consider when you start going out with a man or woman who already has kids. Go through the list and think carefully about it before you jump into commitments.
The age of the kids
The younger the children, the more time they need to spend with their mother and you might also need to take them along in some of your dates. There is nothing wrong with that of course, if you know how to behave around kids. Swearing, smoking, drinking alcohol are adult bad habits that you should avoid at all costs in front of children. If you want to date white women, you might be looking for adventure and women with very young kids might not be able to follow a party lifestyle. Keep that in mind. On the other hand, parents with teenage kids might have a harder time getting the kids to accept their new partners.
The number of kids
The more kids, the less time usually a woman has to date and spend with her new partner, especially if the kids are young. Of course the father or the grandparents can babysit every now and then, but when dating a woman with two or more children, you need to be prepared to help her out as well, if you want to spend more time with her.
The relationship with the other parent
If your date has a good relationship with her ex husband/his ex wife, things shouldn't be too complicated. Just keep in mind that they will always be the parents of your date's kids and therefore they have the right to call your date or visit their house. If you are the jealous type, this might be a problem for you. Try to talk things through with your date and be understanding when it comes to their communication with their ex. If their relationship with them is bad, things can get more complicated. Reassuring the ex partner that you are not trying to substitute them in their kids' life will help a great deal.
The relationship with the kids
You can date a parent and never meet their kids. This is the best you can do, if you are dating just for fun and have no long term plans. This way the kids won't get hurt once you are out of their mom's life. If, however, you really like your date and you want to commit, then you need to start establishing a relationship with their children as well. Start slowly and give them time to get used to you.
Always ask your partner how they want you to approach their kids and how their kids like to be treated. Do not bribe them with gifts but try to build a substantial relationship by dedicating quality time to them.
