He already had two children already and even though in the first instance he said he wanted to have another with me, I knew that he had started to change his mind 3 months in as I could sense it and I ignored the signs as I didn't want to face the consequences of that outcome.

Instead, confront your situation head on (if you want kids with a divorced guy) especially if he has children already.

The challenge I had was that it felt like I was in a relationship with both of them. This would cause a lot of tension in him and would then be transferred into our relationship, which caused a lot of stress on both of us.

Because he was paying for his kids and didn't earn a huge pay check, this liimited what we could do with our time together.

I really wanted to travel a lot more, so when I did travel, I would travel on my own as he had other financial commitments.

Having dated a divorced guy, I can speak from experience of what to do and the mistakes to avoid if you do decide to go down this path with a divorced guy, especially if they have kids.

DATING MISTAKE 1: I ignored the signs of his opinion on kids.

By putting more pressure on him, I pushed him away.

To avoid adding pressure, make sure that you know that you are both on the same path.

DATING MISTAKE 4: Chose to be with someone who financially was in a very different situation to me.

TIP 4: Make sure that you are both in a financial situation that you can do fun stuff together.

In addition, he doubled his commuting time, which added more stress to the plate.
