When you start a love relationship, you don’t think if the person you fall for will be a good dad or not.
At that moment, in the first place is the thought whether you two are compatible and if you get along pretty well. And as time passes, you start thinking about the future with your partner, but you still have time to change your mind if he is not the one you have been looking for.
Rare are the ones who think about the fact that once you get married, you will need someone you can rely on and someone who will be a good father to our kids.
But that is actually the most important thing you should think about because your child will be more important to you than yourself.
That’s why you need to think twice if the man you are dating is someone who can be a good dad.
And if you want to know what he should be like, I will give you a couple of ideas that you might follow.
So, marry someone who will accept you the way you are. Someone who won’t leave you or cheat on you because you gained a couple of kilos in your pregnancy.
Marry the man who will make you a top priority and who will consider you and your child the most important people in his life.
Marry the man who will work at 2 different jobs, just he could provide you with everything you and your child need in case you can’t work.
Marry the man who will show you his love after so many years spent together with the same spark in his eyes like it was your first day.
Marry the man who will tell you how he is blessed to have you and your child in his life and that he would do anything to make you happy.
Marry the man who will go the extra mile to make you feel special, especially on those days when you feel bad.
Be with someone who will love your body after giving birth because he knows what a sacrifice you made to bring your child into this world.
Be with the man who will proudly say to everyone that you are the only one for him and that in you, he has found all that he has been looking for.
Marry a man who will play with your kids rather than surfing the Net or spending time with his friends.
Choose the man who will be happy to spend every free moment with you and your kids because those moments are something he cherishes the most.
Marry the man who will support you in your job and who will be interested in what you do and how he can actually help you to improve yourself.
Marry the man who will get up in the middle of the night to calm down your crying baby and let you sleep because he knows how tired you are.
Choose the man who will leave you alone when you don’t feel like talking because he knows that you have so much on your plate and that you need some time to be alone.
Marry the man who will hug you to comfort you even if you don’t say a word.
Marry the one who knows what you have been through and who accepts all your pieces, no matter how broken they are.
Marry the man who will give the best gift possible to his kids — he will love their mother.
