Hooking up with a woman with kids can sometimes be pretty awkward. Regardless of whether she has toddlers or teenagers, being around someone else’s children may make you feel a bit weird, especially since you are planning to have sex with their mother. There is a typical response of most men greeting a woman’s kids and then trying their best to either avoid being around them or struggling to make awkward conversation with them. If you do either of these things, chances are you are going to impress her at all. Letting her kids do or say whatever they want to you will also just make you one of the typical guys. When you really want to stand out, show her that you can be kind as well as authoritative.
Treat Them with Respect
One of the best ways to show a woman with children that you would be a good catch is by respecting her children. This means regardless of how young they are, do not talk down to them. Sure, you can change you can make the things that you say simplistic for younger kids, but you should not treat them as though they are unintelligent. When you respect her children enough to treat them as though they are equal to you and that their opinions are valid, she will definitely be impressed because you are treating her children in a way that other men haven’t.
Another great way to win her praise is by interacting with her kids. If she has a toddler who brings a toy phone to you, don’t just hold it in your hand or try to give it back to the kid. Put the toy phone to your ear and pretend to talk. As a matter of fact, you can use this opportunity to flatter your date by telling the pretend person on the other end of the line how beautiful your date is. Sure, it may sound cheesy, but it works.
Sometimes women have bad children. There’s no other way to put it. Some kids are just plain awful. If the woman you’re dating has disobedient children that are disrespectful to you, don’t just let them get away with it. Stand your ground and speak up. You don’t have to be rude, mean, or sarcastic, but you definitely need to let them know that you do not appreciate their behavior and that you will not tolerate it. Do not allow her to protect you or to stand up for you.
If her children anger you, do your best not to show your anger. After any confrontations convince her that kids will be kids and try not to dwell. She will already be both apologetic and embarrassed by her child’s behavior that she’ll be willing to make it up to you. If you really want to impress her, make sure you defend her if you notice that her children are disrespecting her as well. These simple things can be all the difference in her choosing you over another man that she’s dating.
