I am separated after 7+ years of marriage and have 3 kids.
I wonder what it's like dating when you come with "baggage." Do you tell them straight up you have 3 kids or does that make you a target for abusers?
If you're looking for commitment before sex, when should you say that?
I am terrified!
Anyone date and/or remarry after divorce?

honesty is important, especially when you have children.
I know everyone wants to be loved, but I'm sure your kids need it more than you do.
With your personality, you can manage or determine if that person is appropriate to commit to that relationship or not.
what I'm trying to say is, always make a backup plan for you and your kids, including their safety and feelings.
Don't hurry up and take it easy.1

I was married for 19 years when I got divorced and my kids were about 16, 14, 13, and 11.
I've since remarried but when I did date I always found it best to be honest about having kids and that I wasn't interested in just sex. Most, but not all, of my dating was through OKCupid, which made it easy to be up front.
Post-divorce dating can be really scary so I know how you feel. If you've any questions or want to chat about it, you're welcome to message me.
