Some single people without children don’t want to date people with children. They don’t want to inherit what they either rightfully or wrongfully perceive to be other people’s problems. Recently, however, some single people without children who like to have as much free time as dating time or who want to date more than one person at a time or want both, have changed their views and discovered that dating single parents (or what is now referred to as visitation dating) might not be such a bad idea after all.
For instance if the person you are dating has visitation every Thursday and alternating weekends then even if it gets serious you know you are free every other weekend and every Thursday. If you want to date someone else than all you have to do is make sure that person’s visitation doesn’t coincide with the person’s visitation your dating. And it’s probably a good idea to make sure that if you are dating two people at once that only one of them has visitation on Valentine’s Day and certain other Holidays.
After all, if you truly like someone then you have to at the very least spend the Neutral Holidays with that person. The Neutral Holidays are the ones where it’s not mandatory that you spend it with your Family. Like New Years Eve, the Fourth of July, Labor Day, Memorial Day and Valentine’s Day, as opposed to Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah and Passover. One of the main reasons for having a significant other is to have someone to be with on the Neutral Holidays. So you definitely need to make sure there are no visitation conflicts during the Neutral Holiday Season and for the more serious relationships during the Non-Neutral Holiday Season.
For visitation dating to work you have to ask a lot of questions. It’s critical to know how many children the person has, the ages of the children, the summer schedule, the holiday schedule, the days of the week schedule, the weekends, time of day, etc…, in order to make sure there is no overlapping visitation.
Now, if you want to mix a third person into the equation then you really have to find out a lot before deciding when to go out on a date. And depending upon the time of year, the day of the week, the time of day, the Holiday schedule and the ages of all the children involved you may end up finding it very difficult to find time for a third person to date.
In fact if you do meet a third person who you really want to go out on a date with when you ask this third person out it may sound something like this: How would you like to go out for dinner three Wednesdays from today during the hours of 6:00P.M. to 9:00P.M.
