Dating your older boss

Trying to compete with children for their dad’s affection is a catastrophic strategy that will end in tears – yours.

He is getting divorced, and I don’t think he would take this any further than flirting — because he probably fears being rebuffed and exposed to a lawsuit — but I welcome it.All it requires to successfully date a dad is to follow a few simple protocols and have a bit of patience.The same rules apply in reverse if you are a man keen on a woman who has children.If their dad is dating it is because he has separated from their mother or he is widowed.Either way it is a scary scenario for those little people. Don’t ask too many banal questions of them – kids hate that. Don’t even think about trying to be their new mummy. And if through some tragedy she is not around anymore, they’ve still got a mummy.
