Pros and cons of dating someone with a child
You should date your opposite because you admire his strengths, not because you those strengths.
If the latter is the case, you could end up feeling resentful when your partner does something for you that you couldn’t do for yourself, instead of accepting your weaknesses and just feeling grateful that he/she fills in the blanks for you.
So, if you really can’t handle the political heat, get out of the kitchen (the relationship).
He’ll introduce you to new kinds of people By dating your opposite, your social network will instantly broaden.
The introvert can drag the extrovert down/the extrovert can irritate the introvert Be careful with the introvert: is he just of a quiet, calmer demeanor, or is he actually anti-social, pessimistic and generally doesn’t like people?
If so, he/she will poison the extrovert’s spritely view on life and people.
You’re proving to yourself you don’t see what’s on the outside If you can really fall in love for and care about somebody that is, on the outside, the total opposite of you, then you can pretty much guarantee you’re not a superficial person and that you know what really counts in a relationship.
You might be trying to prove something to the world Too often people date “outside the lines” just to prove to their friends and family that they have an open mind, or even to spite their friends and family.
Eventually, you can conjoin your two groups into one mega group of friends.
But for the harmony part to happen, the pros need to outweigh the cons. The introvert and the extrovert balance each other If the extrovert feels the need to go out every night and gets antsy without constant socializing, the introvert can teach him/her to learn to appreciate down time.
If the introvert has gotten lazy about “turning it on” and socializing, the extrovert can teach them the art of that again!
The wild child’s insistence on breaking rules and defying authority might prove to be more of a hindrance than it is fun in the end.
The wild child’s friends might find the proper one to be closed minded and judgmental.
