“Ellie Slott Fisher is a single dad's best friend. Dating for Dads is warm, funny, sensitive and bursting with great advice. She proves that fatherhood doesn't preclude having a fabulous dating life.”—Jane Ganahl, author of Naked on the Page: the Misadventures of My Unmarried Midlife
“Ellie Fisher writes in such a familiar, reassuring tone, you feel like you’re getting advice from your best buddy from college. Her common-sense suggestions and game plans make the prospect of single-parent dating seem much more natural and far less intimidating.” —Hank Herman, author of Accept My Kid, Please! A Dad’s Descent into College Application Hell
“It's hard to be a single dad who's dating. Trying to be sensitive and responsive to the feelings and needs of your children and the woman you're dating (not to mention your own), is tough territory for a man to navigate. Ellie Slott Fisher knows that territory inside and out, and has drawn a perfect map of it in Dating for Dads.”—Robert Mark Alter, author of Good Husband, Great Marriage: Finding the Good Husband...in the Man You Married.

Moreover, the book was not well researched. The author kept quoting this one (psychologist?) over and over. It almost felt like she had a cultist reverence for this one "expert." I would have prefered if the author did more research and quoted a variety of sources. Unfortunately, due to this book's lack of research, I was left with many unanswered questions.
On the plus side, this book did make me appreciate how difficult it is to date and find someone once you have kids. I guess if you find someone good, you should do what you can to keep them!
This book is beyond a good book. It should be a required reading for any man venturing into trying to add the complexity of a woman to your life as a single father. I will be recommending this to my former professional mental counselor who deals with complexities in relationships all the time. This book covers everything from simply dating and managing the time and how to talk about things with the new woman and to your kids. It talks about how to find women. It talks about what to expect from women and how to deal with it. It talks about how and when to introduce the woman to your kids. It talks about the balance between the tug of war between role as a father and as a good man to a woman who is not part of your household. It even talks about when you know if this is the right woman for you and if you should consider marriage. It is easily written and it is completely focused on a guys perspective. It is not long-winded.Read more ›
