Dating a Parent

*Relationship advice alert*

So I started dating a guy with a lot of baggage. I know for some it may not be a big deal but for me it's new territory and I've never dated a single Dad before. The guy I'm seeing is amazing but the only issues is that he has 3 kids but he sees them every other weekend.

Has anyone here ever dated a single parent? Good or bad experience? And what advice can you give me.

This "relationship" is quite new and we are still figuring each other out. We've been friends prior and known each other for almost a year before it has blossomed to where we are now. Only issue is that I'm a traveller and looking to move countries, whereas he's quite grounded and has responsibilities. I know if he had it any other way he would come or bring the kids too. We are looking at options like a long distance relationship or splitting our time between two places (which is doable but will be hard.)

Thanks for all your advice and input :)

Hair products question

I could use some advice on hair care. I keep my hair in a very short, pixie style, and I love it this way. There’s just one problem: cowlicks. I have a double cown (if you don't know what that means, see this link: http://www.hairfinder.com/hair2/doublecrown.htm) which causes me to have cowlicks on the back of my head that want to lay in different directions and are hard to control. When my hair is longer, it's not much of a problem, as the weight of my hair pulls it down and makes it lie flat. But when it’s really short, yikes. My hair can look great from the front, but the back can be going in all different directions wihout me even knowing it.

My daughter suggested that I try using some kind of styling prodcuct to control which way my hair lays.  Sounds good, but she didn’t have any specific suggestions. I've tried looking at various products in stores, but there are so many different kinds of products and I have no idea what might work for ne.

What's the last thing you bought?

On Wednesday I ordered a Dyson Motorhead V6 vacuum cleaner that I got today and used til the battery died. It's awesome. I had no idea my last vacuum cleaner was sucking so bad (or not sucking really.)

I also ordered a new crate for my dog because he is a monster and destroyed his other one. That also came today and I need to put it together.
