What to do about a younger guy? Need opinions
So I met a guy that is 12 years younger than me. He is very sweet, honest, and seems genuinely interested in starting a relationship with me. We are at this point just friends. He has met my 10 & 11 year olds and thinks that they are great(most men run the other way), and the kids seem to really like him. However, he has just had his first child and is going to be filing for custody as he is no longer with the mother. I know how hard it is to be a new parent, and a single parent, not mention going to court over custody issues. I am having health issues, I don't do well with casual relationships, and I also know that I don't ever want to get pregnant again. He is 20 and I think that it would be too young for him to decide that he doesn't want more kids especially if he doesn't win custody. If he gets custody he will need to spend time focusing on how to be a single parent. I am trying to decide how to handle this because I really like him. He is the first guy in years to seem interested in me for reasons other than just sex. But I don't want to be unfair and start a relationship that would have no future. As of right now I am think about putting the idea of dating on hold for a year until things settle for both of us, and just being friends in the meantime. I just don't know if I should go to all the effort in the first place.
