Parents dating parents

It's worth being upfront about the fact you have kids, Zane says.No date likes to be surprised by that info later on.It's also important to consider the age and personality of your children.

No matter what the age of the child, avoid a detailed account of why you broke up.Other than that, she says, save the details about your children, your custody arrangements, your divorce, and your ex for when you know the person better.Instead, focus on topics that are easy to discuss and help you learn about each other.If you want to date, you'll have to make time in your life for it.

"It's important to engage your village, friends, family who can support you with time-sharing and babysitting," Zane says.
