Dating a divorced man with 3 kids
In our society, in 2015, it is far more popular to go negative and oppose something.
Pick a topic, and whatever it is, the loudest voices are speaking against it.
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.
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.

But if you’re avoiding the confrontation because “his kids need him all the time,” that might be the issue right there. When used in relationship, the “excuse” is often used to recover from a miss of some sort. The kids got home and all hell broke loose.” That might be okay, if your call was just a “nighty night” check-in, but if you were scheduled to talk about living arrangements, that might be an example of using the kids as an excuse for not taking responsibility.
